"The star of white, moderate, liberal opposition must have exploded light years ago and yet the news is only now filtering through. The sun is shining but it does not fool anyone. This is funeral weather. In 1987 the award-winning novelist Christopher Hope returned to his native South Africa for his first real visit in 12 years. He went to cover the May election, to assess the state of white South Africa, to follow the paths of his childhood, and to try to make sense of the place. Frequently he found only non-sense. He found South Africa so absurd, so mad and so incredible that this book - his first work of non-fiction - reads like a scalding black comedy."; 273 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
