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)

Book Description:

Hailed as a masterpiece around the world, this exploration of apartheid’s legacy is horrifying yet beautiful, harrowing yet hopeful.
