In Foreign Native, RW Johnson looks back with affection and humour on his life in Africa. From schooldays in Durban to later years as an academic, director of the Helen Suzman Foundation and formidable political commentator, he has produced an entertaining and occasionally eye-popping memoir brimming with history, anecdote and insight. Johnson charts his evolution from enthusiastic, left-leaning Africanist to political realist, relating the episodes that influenced his intellectual worldview. There are wonderful stories, some hilarious, others filled with pathos, about the multitude of characters that he met along the way. Perceptive, critical and full of verve, Foreign Native is leavened with a deep humanity that makes it a pleasure to read.
