    This collection of short stories was very interesting to read It gives the reader an insight into the lives of people from different racial backgrounds in South Africa Out of all 10 stories A Drink in the Passage and Life for a Life were my personal favourites I will definitely try to read his Cry, the Beloved Country in the near future
