Priest and Partisan
A South African JourneyBook - 1996
In April 1990, Father Michael Lapsley SSM was the target of a letter bomb from South Africa, losing both hands and an eye. Lapsley was living in exile in Zimbabwe after having earned the hostility of the apartheid government through his active membership of the African National Congress. Priest and Partisan also describes the humor and courage involved in Lapsley's personal struggle to overcome his disability resulting from the bombing. He now works at the Trauma Center for Victims of Torture in Cape Town which is assisting the Commission for Truth and Reconciliation headed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
