'A web of laws had been spun to keep us apart'. So writes rising young Ray, public relations man for the Organisation, who is falling in love against all the taboos - with Victor, the country's most popular deejay, on Radio Bantu. The setting is Johannesburg in the Sixties, where such a high profile 'dirty case' can only play into the hands of the powers that be. First published pseudonymously in 1972, Michael Power's frank, masterly exposure of the police-state brutality of that period may now appear without restriction both at home and abroad.
