Review:

In this poignant memoir, noted South African playwright Athol Fugard pays tribute to two relatives who inspired him to write. His slightly older cousin Johnnie played the piano while Athol improvised accompanying words for performance pieces they called "musical stories." When his troubled cousin Garth Fugard confesses his homosexuality, Athol, realizing that he had already guessed this, had his "first experience of that most essential of all writers' faculties--intuition." The book also contains intriguing explications of the autobiographical elements in works from Blood Knot to Master Harold ... and the Boys.

From the Back Cover:

In Cousins, South African playwright Athol Fugard has written his most moving and personal work to date. Illustrated with numerous family photographs, this deceptively simple memoir examines the author's life from his earliest childhood memories through his days as an accomplished playwright. The story of his relationship with his two male cousins provides the young Fugard with the grist for what was to become an art steeped in the history and turmoil of South Africa under apartheid. The result is a unique look at one of the world's greatest playwrights and the interior landscape of a literary artist's mind.
