An unprecedented personal portrait of one of the great leaders of our time, now publishing for the first time in paperback
Conversations With Myself does the world an extraordinary service in giving us [a] picture of Mandela the man.' From the foreword by President Barack Obama From letters written in the darkest hours of his 27 years of imprisonment to the draft of an unfinished sequel to Long Walk to Freedom, this intensely personal book is a rare chance to spent time with Nelson Mandela the man, in his own voice: direct, clear, private. Here he is making notes and even doodling during meetings, or recording troubled dreams on the desk calendar of his cell on Robben Island; writing journals while on the run during the anti-apartheid struggles of the early 1960s, or conversing with friends in almost 70 hours of recorded interviews. An intimate journey from the first stirrings of his political conscience to his galvanizing role on the world stage, Conversations With Myself is an extraordinary glimpse of the man behind one of the world's most beloved public figures. 'More revealing of the man than his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom - and in many respects more moving as well' F.W. De Klerk 'A book that breaks the heart and then makes it sing' Andrew Rawnsley, Observer Books of the Year
