The New Yorker has said of Athol Fugard, "A rare playwright, who could be a primary candidate for either the Nobel Prize in Literature or the Nobel Peace Prize." His major works for the stage include: Blood Knot; "Master Harold"...and the boys; My Children! My Africa!; A Lesson from Aloes; The Road to Mecca; Valley Song; and The Captain's Tiger.
The search for a means to an end to apartheid erupts into conflict between a black township youth and his "old-fashioned" black teacher.

this is one of the best plays that i have ever read! i saw an excerpt from it performed in school and absolutly loved, so i had to buy the book. after reading it at least 10 times and lending it out to many friends, it is widley considered as one of the best plays of all time at my school.
My Children, My Africa is a great play that encompasses the entire theatre spectrum. I love this play and would like to play Thami in any production. Fugard is one of the most unique playwrights of our time.
I normally dont read books I get from school but this one I HAD to read. Twice!
