In 1990, a lawyer from Johannesburg visited his former clerk in the Victor Verster Prison in South Africa’s Western Cape. The prisoner introduced him to his jailer as ‘the only white man I will ever call boss.’

This is the story of that man, the man Nelson Mandela called boss – Laz Sidelsky. This is his story.

Light, entertaining and easy to read, this is a personal story of the quintessential Jewish immigrant, but peppered with delightful anecdotes about Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Oliver Tambo and others, with pictures and personal notes from Mandela himself.

The book paints the picture of two men from vastly different worlds, who find common ground in fine character, respect for all people, honour and integrity. It showcases the making of a national hero by another, unsung one.

This book is perfect for anyone following the magic of Mandela story and his legacy.
