Growing Old in "Black" South Africa, Paperback / softback Book

Growing Old in "Black" South Africa Paperback / softback


The author's story is a fresh, houmorous and poignant journey which starts in 1964 with the imprisonment of Mandela, followed by the oppressive years of apartheid to the new dawn of a democratic South Africa and beyond.

It is not written through the lens of a political analyst, but from the perspective of an average white male citizen who was born and bred in the country, and will most likely die in it. The narrative which encompasses his years as an SABC journalist, Civic Leader, University lecturer, playwright and TV documentary producer, plays out against the backdrop of a changing political landscape and avoids bitterness as a defining emotion when speaking about the many failures that have limited this country's progress from taking its proper place in the world.
