"Here is a piece of Cape history, recorded, forty years ago, in compassion and in truth of mood. The Cape, and Cape Town, are changing at a more rapid pace than ever, and Quartet offers us a holdfast to whom we were. This book, this quartet of storytellers, was first published in 1963 by Crown Publishers New York, to be followed by the Heinemann Africa Series in 1965. Of the four contributors, two have passed on - Richard Rive (who also edited the collection), and Alex La Guma." Brian O'Connell, from his foreword
