About the book:

The author's parents, Ruth First and Joe Slovo, were South Africa's best-known white opponents of apartheid. First was assassinated in 1982; Slovo became housing minister in Nelson Mandela's multiracial government before dying of cancer. Reconstructing their lives--often in jail or in hiding--their daughter (born in 1952) writes with painful honesty of the war inside her between admiration for their convictions and desperate longing for the normalcy and security denied her as a child. There is no easy resolution here, but great love and sorrowful understanding.
