Collected South African Obituaries
Writing an obituary is an exacting art. It takes great skill to examine a person's life, very often 70 years or more, and to capture his or her essence within a single newspaper column. Here, for the first time, is a collection of obituaries of South Africans who made their mark in politics, academia, business, religion, sport, on the stage, as artists, writers and eccentrics. The author pays tribute to their unique skills, talents, victories and even the notorious scandals that dogged the lives of some. The list of names includes Chris Barnard, Walter Sisulu, Aggrey Klaaste, Beyers Naude and Francesco the Clown.
