RETURN TO PARADISE. by Breytenbach, Breyten.


Edition: First US printing.

New York: Harcourt Brace & Company, (1993.) dj. Hardcover first edition - The third book by this Afrikaaner poet and painter about returning to South Africa as a visitor from his exile in France - as a white South African, a member of the ANC, one who was imprisoned by the apartheid government for 7 years, and as one who has lived most of his adult life in exile, he is both an insider and an outsider. This is a vivid picture of the paradoxes of South Africa in transition - Nelson Mandela is now free, but bloodshed and looting are still common - 'how do you reconcile liberal instincts with the preservation of property?' 224 pp. ISBN: 0-15-1770867.
