A Season in Paradise.
Translated from the Afrikaans by Rike Vaughan.
First UK edition, first impression, of the author’s anti-apartheid travelogue. Closely monitored by the Security Police from the start of his expedition in his native South Africa, Breytenbach finally had to carry on under an assumed identity. Originally published in Holland in the same year, under the title Een seizoen in het paradijs.
