Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Henk van Woerden unravels the strange, affecting history of the mysterious man behind what is perhaps the most dramatic political assassination in modern history, that of South African premier Hendrik Verwoerd. This issue examines the story of Demitrios Tsafendas — a man who went everywhere and belonged nowhere. Plus Diana Athill, Hanif Kureishi, Keith Ridgway, Graham Swift, Paul Theroux and Richard Williams, and a photographic essay on Romania's HIV-positive children.

Synopsis:

In a powerful piece of imagination, Henk van Woerden reconstructs the strange, affecting history of Demetrios Tsafendas — the man who assassinated Hendrik Verwoerd, South African premier and architect of apartheid. Also in this issue: Diana Athill on the need to like V. S. Naipaul; Richard Williams on the search for a long-lost jazz trumpeter; and stories by Graham Swift, Hanif Kurieshi, and Paul Theroux.
