    Africa is Calling (Passionate Breeze)

    Africa is calling, come mwana come.
    Ululating village women have their arms open, ready to embrace me.
    The cracked, dusty African earth is ready to receive my footprints.
    Africa is calling “halala”. read more »

    Cry, The Beloved Country

    I first read Alan Paton’s Cry The Beloved Country in 1967, when I was 18, and remembered the opening paragraph vividly. I re-read some of it before I went to South Africa to visit my son Daniel in 1991. As preparation I also read Malan’s My Traitor’s Heart, some guide books, various maps which I read like short stories, and Lamb’s The Africans. I finished Cry the Beloved Country on my return and found it extremely moving.

    It is a fine book. It tells the story of Kumalo, a parish priest, who travels to the city to search out his lost son, Absalom, who had left the rural home because the land could no longer support him. He eventually discovers that his son has murdered a white man, a kind and caring liberal, during a failed burglary. His son must hang and Kumalo has to return to his parish bearing the shame. The story is told in simple words, short sentences, restrained emotion, deep conviction and with a directness that lays bare the pain of South Africa. No politics here, just raw truth. It has a pastoral sound, like the music of Vaughn Williams, but speaking of the fair valleys of South Africa, not England. The language is reminiscent of the gospels: the story telling of Mark and the depth of John. Paton’s theme is the passing of the tribe, the loss of customs and family, of something being broken, something lost. read more »
