Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In 1987, after a twelve year absence, Chistopher Hope returned to South Africa to report on the run up to that year's whites-only election. The nature of the election campaign and the bitter defeat of the liberals lead him to write this satirical, evocative portrait of what it looked and felt like growing up in a country gripped by an absurd, racist insanity. Full of exquisite and despairing descriptions of the landscape the White Boy is running through, this mordantly witty account of escape, displacement and disillusionment is a modern classic of journalistic memoir. 'beautifully written' - "The Times". 'mocking, angry and beautiful' - "Washington Post". 'exactly the right note of cold, poetic irony' - "Financial Times". 'exquisite and despairing' - "Newsday". 'An exceptional book' - "Los Angeles Times".

Inhaltsangabe:

This book recounts the experiences of award-winning novelist Christopher Hope who went back to South Africa in 1987 for his first real visit in 12 years. He retraces his footsteps through the cruel absurdities of a world in disarray. The author also wrote "A Separate Development", "Kruger's Alp" and "The Hottentot Room". This is his first work of non-fiction.
