ALTMAN, PHYLLIS - The Law of Vultures

(Johannesburg: Ad. Donker, 1987) 0868521256. . 200 x 130 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. 206. Spine a bit sunned. Edges browned. Very good condition. "William Plomer, then a reader for Jonathan Cape, proclaimed the brilliance of The Law of Vultures when he accepted it for publication in 1952. The critics endorsed this judgment, and hailed Phyllis Altman's novel as a true successor to Alan Paton's Cry, the Beloved Country. Altman, like Paton, is deeply concerned with the fate of rural blacks uprooted from tribal life, trying to adapt to industrial urban society. The tragedy of Thabo Thaele, in the novel, is of injustice and the apparent futility of seeking redress.".
