Mating birds by Lewis Nkosi( Book )
28 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 699 libraries worldwide
Premier roman de Lewis Nkosi, professeur et écrivain d'origine africaine et de nationalité anglaise. Le récit retrace les derniers jours de la vie d'un "zoulou" condamné à mort pour avoir violé une jeune Anglaise de race blanche. L'auteur décrit avec minutie l'ascension de l'immense désir qui a conduit l'indigène à accomplir l'acte interdit. L'ardeur de la plage de Durban de même que la scène du procès rappellent quelque peu l'atmosphère de ##L'étranger## de Camus. L'indigène est-il seul responsable de son crime? La belle et provocante Veronica est-elle totalement inoffensive? L'auteur vise à inciter le lecteur à condamner la ségrégation raciale

"Cornelius Molapo - urban dandy, poet, dancer, fiery but fickle political orator - is not the first person you'd choose to lead the revolution. And no one is more surprised than Corny when he's approached by the National Liberation Movement and ordered to lead a peasant uprising in remote Tabanyane - right now, Little does Cornelius suspect that he is a pawn in a much bigger political game: the NLM has its own reasons for deploying this reluctant revolutionary." "His sudden disappearance mystifies friends, loved ones, and ultimately the international community - it's assumed that he's been abducted by the police, or worse. Expatriate Anthony Ferguson is dispatched to South Africa by a human rights organisation to investigate. But the emotions stirred up by his return, and the reunion with his decadent, bewitching sister Hazel, distract Anthony from his quest for the seemingly harmless Cornelius. And by the time the two cross paths, Cornelius Molapo is harmless no more ..." "Nkosi takes us to mansions and mountain hideouts, where we meet a dazzling variety of characters; serene Princess Madi of the Tabanyane royal house, Kristina the small-town temptress and Joe Bulane, the sinister Central Committee man."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
In 1957, Rogosin travelled to South Africa and created a powerfully, moving drama exposing the harsh reality of life under the system apartheid. Filmed secretly under the noses of the feared South African police, Rogosin, his crew, and cast risked arrest and deportation. Miriam Makeba was banned from her country after travelling to Venice for the movie's premiere. The scenes shot in the vibrant black ghetto of Sophiatown are precious images of a lost world

Still beating the drum critical perspectives on Lewis Nkosi by Lindy Stiebel( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Lewis Nkosi is one of South Africa's foremost writers and critics, and one of the few survivors of the exile generation dating from the Drum era. Up until now, however, no full length study has been done on his work. This is a gap in South African literary history and criticism that this book is intended to fill. Besides his well known earlier works, Nkosi is still very much an active writer as the publication in 2002 of his novel, Underground People, shows, with his latest novel due out in 2005. The timing of Still Beating the Drum, a book which intends to highlight and evaluate his extensi
