Journey Continued: An Autobiography

By Alan Paton
Scribners, 1988
308 pp. $22.50
Purchase

Fans of South Africa's well-known novelist will not find the lyrical master of English prose in this last work, the second and final part of his autobiography. Instead he gives us a fairly straight account of the period from the publication of Cry the Beloved Country (1948) to the end of the 1960s, focusing mostly on the stormy 15-year existence of the multiracial Liberal Party, which he chaired. A candid though not particularly revealing memoir of liberal political activism during apartheid's years of greatest growth and strength.
