Description

Stephen Kumalo, a Zulu pastor, takes the train to Johannesburg in search of his son Absalom, of whom he has heard nothing. Unfaltering courage and simple faith lead him through a country now alien to him, past people to whom he is invisible, in search of a son and in search of answers to the questions that haunt him: what is justice? what is freedom? where is hope?

Professional reviews

"A man's search for his son also tells of the loss of a way of life, and the struggle of South Africans to find their place in a new order. It is as timely today as when it was first published more than forty years ago. African place names and proper names have a lyrical quality, and the narrator handles the changing dialects and accents with skill. One can almost hear the peace that once was Africa in the soothing tones of the reader, who also conjures up feelings of despair and hopelessness as the story moves toward tragedy. Later, the voice of hope shines through. This is a beautiful audio performance of a profoundly moving novel. C.A.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
