about

Chris van Wyk was born in Soweto in 1957. He now lives in Northcliff, Johannesburg, and is a writer of poetry, books for children and teenagers, short stories and novels. He has won prestigious literary prizes and his work has been published around the world. His 2004 childhood memoir SHIRLEY, GOODNESS AND MERCY became a bestseller and was turned into a successful play.

Nelson Mandela was born in Transkei, South Africa, on July 18, 1918. He joined the African National Congress in 1944 and was engaged in resistance against the ruling National Party’s apartheid policies after 1948. He was incarcerated at Robben Island prison from 1964 to 1982 and then moved to Pollsmoor Prison, during which time his reputation as a potent symbol of resistance to apartheid grew steadily. Released from prison in 1990, Mandela received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was inaugurated as the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994. He is the author of the international bestseller LONG WALK TO FREEDOM.
