WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR

In '70s' South Africa, Rian Malan – descendant of the architects of apartheid, middle-class white boy, friend to blacks – went to work as a crime reporter for a local Johannesburg rag. There he encountered first-hand the horrors wrought by apartheid: the poverty, injustice and violence. After an eight-year exile, he returned to write this book. With gripping stories and in mesmerising prose, this is Malan’s attempt to understand his country, its racial hatred, and his own tortured conscience.

Rian Malan is an Afrikaner, a member of the clan that produced Daniel Francois Malan, one of the master builders of apartheid, and General Magnus Malan, South Africa's Minister of Defence. In 1977, he fled his homeland to live in America. Eight years later, he returned home to face his country, his tribe and his conscience, and to write My Traitor's Heart.
