About This Item

(Johannesburg: Penguin, 1992). 194 x 128 mm; laminated pictorial wraps; pp. (vi) +151; cartoon illustrations. Wraps very slightly sunned. Near fine condition. 'You don't have to be crazy to stay sane in South Africa. But it helps. Now here's an even easier method. It's called Braaivleis of the Vanities, and it's a sizzling exposé of South African sosatie, featuring practical advice on everything from Shock Treating Your Pool to Barricading Your Suburb to Starting Your Own Volkstaat in another country. If you've ever wondered how to tell the difference between your telephone number and your telephone account, what you have to do to join a rolling mass action campaign, or why the bit of writing on the back of a book is called a "blurb", this is the book you've been waiting for. Packed with handy hints, inside information, and step-by-step interim guidelines, Braaivleis of the Vanities is guaranteed to help you stay sane as you search for your potjiekos at the end of the rainbow.' .
