WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHORIn '70s' South Africa, Rian Malan - descendant of the architects of apartheid, middle-class white boy, friend to blacks - went to work as a crime reporter for a local Johannesburg rag.
There he encountered first-hand the horrors wrought by apartheid: the poverty, injustice and violence.
After an eight-year exile, he returned to write this book.
With gripping stories and in mesmerising prose, this is Malan's attempt to understand his country, its racial hatred, and his own tortured conscience.
