Tsotsi, Paperback

Description

Tsotsi is an angry young gang leader in the South African township of Sophiatown.

A man without a past, he exists only to kill and steal.

But one night, in a moonlit grove of bluegum trees, a woman he attempts to rape forces a shoebox into his arms.

The box contains a baby, and his life is inexorably changed.

He begins to remember his childhood, to rediscover himself and his capacity for love. Turned into an Oscar-winning movie in 2006, Tsotsi's raw power and rare humanity show how decency and compassion can survive against the odds.
