    DescriptionThis official companion book to the major feature film Mandela: The Long Walk Home retraces the life of Nelson Mandela in a wholly original way, weaving together his own words and historic humanitarian efforts with cinematic narrative and exclusive behind-the-scenes content. It's a movie tie-in unlike any other: a lavishly illustrated mesh of fiction and history, featuring film stills alongside archival photographs of actual events; commentary from the acclaimed cast and filmmakers plus interviews with Mandela's own family and comrades; excerpts from his books and selections from his personal papers, many previously unpublished, with lush, full-colour panoramas of the South African landscapes where the film was shot on location. Fans of the movie and Mandela admirers, whatever their age, will relish this unique look at the making of an epic motion picture and the life of a beloved historical icon.

He is the author of the international bestsellers Long Walk to Freedom and Conversations with Myself.
