A bit of pre-hype for a book we are very excited to be publishing this September, GG Alcock’s THIRD WORLD CHILD – BORN WHITE, ZULU BRED.

It’s the story about the huge diversity of this country, from savage Zulu warriors to sophisticated urban black empowerment recipients and a fair bit in between. It is about a unique life thrust upon GG as the child of extraordinary parents, Creina and Neil Alcock, who were unique in their time. Both his mother, a writer and academic, and his father, a well-known anti-apartheid activist (who was murdered when GG was 14), gave up their lives of wealth to live in a mud hut in the middle of Zululand.

This is the story of GG’s world or, more accurately, the worlds in which he lives.

Says RIAN MALAN, author of My Traitor’s Heart, ‘Astonishing. Alcock has written the first report from the next South Africa. You might think you know South Africa, but this book will show you otherwise.’
