In 2001, South African-born actress and playwright Pamela Gien won an Obie Award for an autobiographical Broadway play called "The Syringa Tree." The story is told through the eyes of a white girl who, like Gien, grows up in apartheid-era South Africa. Now Gien tells her story in a novel, her first, also called "The Syringa Tree."
