Too Late The Phalarope
From the author of Cry, The Beloved Country comes a powerful novel of terror and remorse “written in exquisitely balanced prose” (Chicago Sun-Times) about a white policeman who has an affair with a native girl in South Africa.
After violating his country’s ironclad law governing relationships between the races, a young white South African police lieutenant must struggle alone against the censure of an inflexible society, his family, and himself.

The point of not using quotation marks made the novel really hard to follow, and I never really finished it to be honest. Maybe I'll re-read it one day; the story (when read correctly) is supposed to be fantastic.
