The Lion Sleeps Tonight : And Other Stories of Africa Hardback
by Rian Malan
For Rian Malan, the blessing of living in South Africa is that every day presents him with material whose richness astounds those who live in saner places.
Twenty years after the publication of his bestseller My Traitor's Heart, he is still strongly committed to the struggle against suffocating political rectitude.
Malan eviscerates politicians, provokes rabid fury in Aids activists, pursues justice in the music industry, and exults in the company of an extraordinary cast of characters from truckers to tycoons.
