    Alan Stewart Paton was born and educated in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal He started his career by teaching at a school in Ixopo where he met and married his first wife The dramatic career change to director of a reformatory for black youths at Diepkloof, near Johannesburg, had a profound effect on his thinking The publication of Cry, The Beloved Country 1948 made him one of South Africa s best known writers It is a searing account of the inhumanity of apartheid told in a lyrical voice which emphasises Paton s love for the land and people of South Africa, and his hope for a change in the future It remains a world bestseller and probably one of the most recognisable titles from this country Paton became a fulltime writer after this novel, producing novels Too late the Phalarope 1953, Ah, But Your Land is Beautiful 1981 , two volumes of his autobiography Towards the Mountain 1980, Journey Continued 1988 , short stories and biographies of J.H Hofmeyr and Bishop Geoffrey Clayton among other writings Following his non racial ideals, he helped to found the South African Liberal Party and became its president He remarried after the death of his first wife and remained living in Durban until he died.

  • Alan Paton s stories tell of a South Africa before the end of Apartheid Many of them are about a reform school principal who is likely to be based on Paton s first hand experiences in that job The tales are well told and describe the racial tensions in the country without being overly heavy handed and preachy My favorite example of this was A Drink in the Passage It dealt with an artistic prize usually only given to whites that went to a black man and described other racist laws over the course [...]


  • This collection of short stories was very interesting to read It gives the reader an insight into the lives of people from different racial backgrounds in South Africa Out of all 10 stories A Drink in the Passage and Life for a Life were my personal favourites I will definitely try to read his Cry, the Beloved Country in the near future
