Worst Journeys: An Anthology of South African travel disasters -Pat Hopkins & Bridget Hilton-Barber
Worst journeys is an anthology of travel disasters that have befallen some of the world’s best-known writers, from the past to the present. The anthology will feature, among others, authors as diverse as Sol Plaatje, Rudyard Kipling, Herman Charles Bosman, Tim Couzens, John Matshikiza, Denise Slabbert, Don Mattera, and even Mahatma Gandhi. From the hilarious accounts of Trinity Crimp’s mampoer-tasting exploits, to the tragedy of the Birkenhead and flight SA295, to the holidays that turned into nightmares, these stories are uniquely South African in flavour. Each and every one will grip and enthral the reader.
