A Dry White Season, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Ben du Toit is an ordinary, decent, harmless man, unremarkable in every way - until his sense of justice is outraged by the death of a man he has known.

His friend died at the hands of the police. In the beginning it appears a straightforward matter, an unfortunate error that can be explained and put right.

But as Ben investigates further he finds that his curiosity becomes labelled rebellion - and for a rebel there is no way back.

Review by

Tells it like it was. If ever one is in danger of forgetting what life was like in apartheid South Africa, this is the book to read. The description, the setting, the characters are all absolutely authentic.
