Back cover copy

Rarely has a playwright been so closely identified with his country and his people as Athol Fugard. Fugard's extensive body of work has served as one of the moral beacons in the bleak world of South Africa, and now, in Valley Song - this coming-of-age story about a young girl seeking the courage to embrace the future while her grandfather searches for the wisdom to let go of the past - he applies his great gift to the work of healing and of envisioning the future.
