    R220.00

    Distinguished journalist and author of prize-winning Midlands, The Number and acclaimed Three Letter Plague, Jonny Steinberg’s new book is A Man of Good Hope. It tells the story of the life of Asad Abdullahi, a Somali man living in Blikkiesdorp in Cape Town at the time the book begins. Steinberg traces Asad’s life: the trauma of witnessing his mother’s murder by Somali militia when he was eight years old; his subsequent childhood of rootless wanderings through Kenya and Ethiopia, at times staying with distant relatives, or simply fending for himself; and the move to South Africa with his wife and son. Steinberg explores the displacement of the refugee; Asad is part of a wartime migration that scattered the Somali people throughout sub-Saharan Africa and the world. A fascinating story of a man whose vision of the world we are shown through his indomitable spirit and determination to find, or create, his own roots.

Of hy nou die tuisskares by die Wanderers of Nuweland laat jubel, of in Bengaluru of Sydney nuwe rekords opstel, die vriendelike krieketheld speel ‘n vreeslose, vurige spel wat miljoene Suid-Afrikaners trots maak en altyd ‘n positiewe beeld van sy land uitstraal.
