Around And About - Memoirs Of A South African Newspaperman (Paperback)


This is a humorous, wry, critical and, sometimes, nostalgic look at people and events in South Africa over the past half century by one of the country's longest-serving newspaper editors.

In these memoirs Michael Green writes about the famous and infamous, the admirable and not so admirable characters he encountered during his long career: politicians, musicians, sportsmen, actors, lawyers and, of course, journalists in a variety of situations. Rich in anecdote and information, Around And About is a valuable contribution to the story of South Africa in the twentieth century and an entertaining and enjoyable read.

Michael Green was editor of the DAILY NEWS, Durban, for 15 years and editor-in-chief of the SUNDAY TRIBUNE for three years.
