Abstract:

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.
