Kaffir Boy in America is the sequel to Mark Mathabane's extraordinary autobiography, Kaffir Boy. The story begins with Mathabane's escape from South Africa to the United States, and recounts his coming of age in a country overwhelming in its immensity, luxuriousness, poverty, and despair. From his early college days when he first discovered the great black American writers, to his emergence as the voice of a new generation, from his reflections on America's racial and social injustice to his celebration of its basic freedoms, Kaffir Boy in America is a moving saga of hardship and determination, insight and inspiration, informed, above all, by Mark Mathabane's compassion for his fellow man.
"A triumphant and inspirational book with profound insights about race relations, perseverance and the complexity of the 'American Dream.'" --San Francisco Chronicle
"An inspiring story...The glitz of America hasn't made Mark Mathabane forget that the struggle to free his homeland is still his struggle--and ours." --Chicago Sun-Times
"Relentless, open-ended, cautionary and quietly splendid." --Cleveland Plain Dealer
