Home Ground by Lynn Freed

This coming-of-age story was selected as one of the Notable Books of the Year (1986) by The New York Times Book Review. In its review earlier that year, The Times said "Freed's guileless child-narrator takes us inside the neurosis of South Africa." The Washington Post remarked "Here's a rarity: a novel about childhood and adolescence that never lapses into self-pity, that rings true ... that regards adults sympathetically if unsparingly, that deals with serious thematic material, and that is quite deliciously funny. Home Ground is all this and more."
