In The Press
"Pillay tells this story of South Africa's 1950s with a deep sympathy for all those human beings in the world who yearn for freedom, liberty and the right to enjoy life on this earth. . . . This is a brilliant tale, told with the lack of fear, which finally drove Shunna out of his country of birth." —Hugh Masekela, musician
