Familiarity Is the Kingdom of the Lost

Familiarity Is the Kingdom of the Lost - Dugmore Boetie, Barney Simon A very odd book which purports to be autobiographical but then cuts away from that in the extra textual materials. Fiction or nonfiction, it makes for fascinating reading about life in South Africa in the mid-part of the last century: it's all about having or getting the right government papers and trying to stay out of jail.
