Beschreibung

"Until Julius Comes" is a boisterous, unprecedented journey through the wilds of South African politics in an election year. With his sharp wit and perceptive observations, Richard Poplak exposes the tricks of the political trade and the skulduggery that comes with it. Writing under the byline Hannibal Elector, he spares no one: Julius Malema looks like a 'Teletubbie in his EFF onesie'; Jacob Zuma is a tasteless home renovator with 'no access to a Woolworths lifestyle magazine' and Helen Zille sends out 'Braveheart vibes' as she guides her troops into battle. In vignettes that switch between the hilarious, the tragic and the terrifying, Poplak rips back the curtain and exposes the country for what it is: a bustling, contested and divided circus trying to find its way to wholeness.

Richard Poplak is an award-winning journalist, author, graphic novelist and doggerelist. He is currently a senior writer at Daily Maverick. Richard trained as a filmmaker and fine artist, but can now be found chasing Big Game in Africa, investigating German sub-subcultures in Namibia, bowling in Kazakhstan, racing Mercedes sports sedans in Russia - for a whole bunch of different publications across the world. His first book was the highly acclaimed "Ja, No, Man: Growing Up White in Apartheid-Era South Africa" (2007) which was longlisted for the Alan Paton Non-Fiction Award and shortlisted for the University of Johannesburg Literary Award. He has also won Media24's Best Feature Writing Award and a National Magazine Award in Canada.
