Book Details

Young on the run from Apartheid is a novel. The story takes place between 1985 and 2004. The main character, Sandile, is on a search for his humanity through the backdrop of apartheid, and suddenly has to flee from South Africa to Sweden as a result of his parents' political activities. In Sweden he finds an open and loving African community, where he must deal with the political issues he has left behind in South Africa. The book takes place in three countries: South Africa, Sweden and Kenya. It is fast paced and is told in the African manner, as if the narrator were sitting at a boma (traditional fireplace) narrating the story.
