An evening with Jonny Steinberg, in conversation with Hlonipha Mokoena about his latest book Winnie and Nelson (25 May)
More about the book!
Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre invite you to an evening with Jonny Steinberg.
The scholar and award-winning author of Midlands and The Number will be in conversation with Hlonipha Mokoena, professor and researcher at WISER, about his latest book Winnie and Nelson: Portrait of a Marriage.
Winnie and Nelson is a modern epic in which trauma doesn’t affect just the couple at its centre, but an entire nation.
‘Based on far-ranging research as well as on a trove of recently uncovered materials – as deeply sympathetic to Winnie, caught up in the whirlwind of insurrectionary violence, as to Nelson, trapped in his prison cell and losing touch day by day with the evolving situation on the ground – Steinberg’s massive essay in political biography is unlikely to be superseded in a long time.’ – JM Coetzee, Nobel Laureate 2003
