The author,GG ALCOCK, believes that we have moved on from hand wringing apartheid stories andThird World Childavoids the groupie style or historical style of the books written about apartheid. And yet, at the same time, this book is about the legacy of apartheid for a white person living in a black world.
The story is about the huge diversity of this country from savage Zulu warriors to sophisticated urban black empowerment recipients and a fair bit in between. It is about a unique life thrust upon GG as the child of extraordinary parents,CreinaandNeil Alcock, who were unique in their time. Both his mother, a writer and academic, and his father, a well-known anti-apartheid activist, gave up their lives of wealth to live in a mud hut in the middle of Zululand.
