Title: Behold the Earth Mourns
Description: Central News Agency, South Africa / The Author. 1960, First Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 204 pages (complete). Signed by Ansuyah Singh on the front pastedown (dated: 14.12.60). A most agreeable copy of this extraordinary novel. It is considered the first novel written by a South African Indian. The novel, set in the 1940s partly in South Africa and in India, tells the story of a Durban man, Srenika Nirvani, whose family is part of the indentured labour system and was political active. He travels to Bombay to marry an Indian woman from Bombay, Yagesvari Jivan-Sinha. The narratives reveal the complexity of relations not only within a family but with friends, native black Africans and how the dynamics of the self consciousness and the social, economic and political were and are mixed up the country's racial policies and prejudices. The dustjacket has a clear cellophane protective cover. The dj has some mild wear about the edges and seams and corners. It has light rubbing and scuffing. It is serene and sure. The red boards are smart and healthy. The contents are agreeably hale, clean, clear, comfortable, keen. fk. Very Good/Good. Signed.
