Author Name    Breytenbach, Breyten.

Title   The True Confessions of an Albino Terrorist.

Publisher    London: Faber and Faber, [1984].

Seller ID   17716scs

Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), 396 pp. Fine, in a Fine dust jacket. Breytenbach is one of South Africa's finest contemporary writers. The True Confessions of an Albino Terrorist is his record of seven years-- much of the time in solitary confinement -- in South Africa's prisons...Here, in pitiless and gripping detail, is the anatomy of life in one of the worst prison systems in the world: the depersonalization, the physical and psychological torture, the condemned lives on Death Row, the hangings, the warders, the routines, and above all, the thousand-and-one tiny obsessions of a man left alone with himself for years at a stretch. The story of Breytenbach's testimony in these harrowing pages is the story of great art throughout the ages: the marriage of a fine literary mind with a succession of experiences so shattering that only art can transform them into a bearable recollection.
