Edition: First thus.

New York: Summit Books, (1987) dj. Hardcover first edition - The first novel by this award-winning Afrikaans writer to be published in English. Originally published in 1978, this was reissued because changing circumstances in South Africa made it even more relevant - it presents a picture of South Africa in what was then 20 or 30 years in the future, with the former privileged ruling class of whites barely managing to survive - a warning of the consequences of apartheid (or of any misrule). Graham Greene described this novel as "a South African 1984" Translated by Marion V. Freedman. 205 pp. ISBN: 0-671-644254.

Condition: Very near fine in a like dustjacket.
