From the Publisher
A classic collection of 20 short stories, the core of which is
formed by Alan Paton''s famous first volume of short stories Debbie
Go Home (1961), published in the US as Tales from a Troubled Land.
The rest of the stories are taken from other sources,10 of them
from Paton''s last volume, Knocking on the Door (1975). The
collection is prefaced by Paton''s lively interview of himself.
Paton himself provides the best description of the collection when
he says: ''''¦ you must put your story first, not your politics or
religion or your anger ''¦ they inform the story and give it colour
and warmth and fire. But they must never usurp the place of the
prime motive, which is to tell a story.'' ''The Hero of Currie
Road'', the last story in the collection, was read publicly by
Paton in 1970 in Johannesburg and first published in 1972.
