A Study in Trans-Ethnicity in Modern South Africa The Writings of Alex La Guma (1925-1985)
This study examines the fiction and non-fiction work of Alex La Guma, including his early journalism. It incorporates some works, especially his cartoon series Little Libby: The Adventures of Liberation Chabalala, hitherto unused in any literary analysis of the author. This study undertakes a rigorous and sustained examination of the way in which the South African social context works into the literary text of La Guma, and how it permeates his vision of a trans-ethnic society in South Africa.
". . . those who pursue the work will be rewarded with a thorough analysis of La Guma's fiction, a full bibliography, and appendix of relevant South African terminology." -- World Literature Today
