Summary "As a child growing up in apartheid South Africa, Mark Gevisser was obsessed with maps, discovering apartheid by realizing that he could not find a neighboring black township at all. Gevisser uses maps, family photographs, newspaper clippings and courtroom testimony to chart his family's journey from Lithuanian shtetl to white suburb, finding oneself as a gay Jewish South African who was raised under apartheid and who eventually married a man of a different race."--from publisher data and jacket.
