0 Reviews
The four books comprising this novel, each covering a decade in South Africa's history, are interlinked with the developing stories of its characters. The book tells the real story of who saved South Africa from itself in the final turbulent decades of the last century, revealing Rupertheimer, the political mover and shaker behind the scenes who secretly and single-handedly steered his country to an embryonic democracy. Picturesque and provocative, brash and funny, this book does for South Africa what "Catch-22 did for World War II.
