DWG sister volume now complete!
I'm delighted to be submitting my fourth book to the publishers today. "Under the Rusted Rainbow: Perdition and Promise in the New South Africa" (BestRed, Cape Town, due September 2015) is the sister volume of "Drinking with Ghosts," but covers conditions of exclusion in democratic SA: poor whites, Bushmen, illegal coal miners, land claimants, squatters, the AWB, etc. John Pilger asked me to send him a portion of it to read, which is great! It weighs in at 80,000 words.
