"This extensively illustrated biography takes both a sympathetic and critical look at Dhlomo's life and work, his role in the development of the theory and practice of literature in South Africa, his social and political ideas and his effect on the history of the black press.
But the book is more than the biography of one man. It is a portrait of two decades in South Africa, of the politics, music, painting and social life between the two World Wars, and he gathering crisis after the Second World War. It depicts the struggle of a whole class of people to win independence in all spheres of their lives." Taken from the book.
