Boyhood: Scenes from Provincial Life


Show Synopsis

From "South Africa's most brilliant novelist" ("Seattle Times") comes a powerful and moving story of childhood and one writer's beginnings. "Boyhood's" young narrator grew up in a country town in South Africa, troubled by guilt and fears. His first encounters with literature, the awakenings of sexual desire, and a growing awareness of Apartheid left him with baffling questions; and only in his love of the "veld" could he find a sense of belonging.
