AROUND AND ABOUT (article first published : 2004-08-6)

Later this month, New Africa Books and Adams and Co are to launch a new book by Michael Green.

Michael Green was editor of the Daily News, Durban, for 15 years and editor-in-chief of the Sunday Tribune for three years. In retirement he writes about music and wine and has been much involved in cultural and educational matters.

Out and About 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.
