Fine Music Radio “People of Note” Interview with Malcolm Jack

“For European visitors who called at the Cape in past centuries, its ‘otherness’–the iconic mountain, the unusual fauna and flora, the indigenous people and their alien culture–was forever the subject of wonder. This sense of awe is strongly evoked in Malcolm Jack’s new book.”
