Synopsis: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. A republication of the author's account of the brutality and degradation suffered by black people under apartheid in South Africa traces his personal struggles with poverty, hopelessness, and desperation behind the official televised stories.

Review: Kaffir Boy does for apartheid-era South Africa what Richard Wright's Black Boy did for the segregated American South. In stark prose, Mathabane describes his life growing up in a nonwhite ghetto outside Johannesburg--and how he escaped its horrors. Hard work and faith in education played key roles, and Mathabane eventually won a tennis scholarship to an American university. This is not, needless to say, an opportunity afforded to many of the poor blacks who make up most of South Africa's population. And yet Mathabane reveals their troubled world on these pages in a way that only someone who has lived this life can.
