This is the second collection of the columns by Stephen Mulholland that appear in the Sunday Times, and are the most widely read of their kind in South Africa. For forty years Mulholland has been a forceful presence on the South African media scene as a journalist, editor, chief executive and now, in his retirement, as a lively and controversial columnist. His weekly columns cover a bewildering and eclectic range of topics with verve and insight. He brings to his writings a lifetime interest in subjects as diverse as sport and medicine, education and international affairs, politics, business ethics and reasons never to go to London again. It is impossible to agree with him all the time but it is also impossible not to be intrigued by his thinking, impressed with his research, amused by his digs at powerful people and pleased by the fluency of his writing. His columns are read and quoted, with both fierce criticism and fervent approval, all over South Africa and in many other parts of the world. He may annoy readers, but never bores them. This book brings together a stimulating and highly readable collection of a vibrant and influential voice in South African affairs.There was a time (and it was not that long ago) when the average South African home, unless it was stately and inherited, was generally outfitted from some ... Of course now home decorating is big business not only in this country but globally.
