Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 194 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is Andre Brink s story of a life lived in tumultuous times. He describes with searing honesty his conflicting experiences of growing up in a world where innocence was always surrounded by violence and storytelling was a means of reconciling the stark contrasts of his world. His time spent in Paris in the 1960s confirmed in him the desire to become a writer but his opposition to the apartheid establishment resulted in years of harassment by the South African secret police; it also led to extraordinary friendships with leaders of the ANC in exile. A Fork in the Road is Andre Brink s love song to the country where he was born and where, despite recent tragedies, he still lives today. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099527039
