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.

Product Description:

My Traitor's Heart

Review:

"Rian Malan has written a tragic masterpiece and a classic of our time" ( Time Out)

" My Traitor's Heart is a tremendous book about candour, honour and race, a witness-bearing act of the rarest courage. No one who reads it could ever forget it" ( Michael Herr)

"A tortured, mesmerising attempt to capture exactly the conflicts of [Malan’s] upbringing, conflicts that went to the soul of the emerging nation." ( Guardian)

"The remorseless exercise of a reporter's anguished conscience gives us a South Africa we thought we knew all about: but we knew nothing" (John Le Carre)

"A great swirling devil of a book and it is equal in every way to its vast subject - the black and white country of the heart" (Don DeLillo)
