First published in 1990, four years before Nelson Mandela assumed the presidency of a democratic South Africa, When Darkness Falls boldly captures the spirit of resistance shown by black South Africans in the face of the brutal apartheid system.
It is a book that boldly anticipates a future without apartheid, and which, in moving poetry, tells of a people's determination to live, love, and laugh even under very difficult conditions.
