what i'm reading now

Cry, the Beloved Country was a worldwide best seller when it was published in 1948. It's the story of a Zulu pastor and his son during the racial injustice of apartheid. It's not just the story of people but of the land. It's been on my reading list for years but I just got around to it. I'm sorry it took so long.

I loved that book when i read it, and it had a profound influence on me. I haven't thought about it for years, but now it's at the top of my reading wish list. thanks.

And isn't it an evocative title?

I'll have to reread it; I remember being moved greatly by it when I read it the first time. Even the movie based on the book was good.
