Sold by: rovabooks

To this biography of the great South African leader, Jan Hofmeyr – “the strange, shut-in man”, whom he knew and loved, Alan Paton brings all his perceptive intuition as a novelist. This is particularly evident when he is writing of Hofmeyr’s two most important influences: first, the indomitable mother, who held him in a grasp from which he never wanted strongly enough to escape; and secondly, General Smuts, by whom he was fascinated, yet with whom he often differed fundamentally.
