Proof that there is no easy answer,

This review is from: My Traitors Heart (Paperback)
Rian Malan is a wordsmith of such creativity that even if you have no interest in this part of the world - you should read this for the beauty of his prose.
If you have any interest, atrraction or have ever visited South Africa you cannot be without this book. Malan has no axes to grind other that where he sees his own failings. A balanced work that brings home the enormity of the issues facing those that have to govern this diverse group of cultures that may not sit together comfortably for more than one generation to come.
