Issued on: Modified:
Today on culture, Clovis Casali’s guest is Breyten Breytenbach. A prolific writer as well as a distinguished painter, he is a man who fought Apartheid for decades. Consequently he was imprisoned for seven years in South African jails in the late seventies. His latest book, 'Voiceover' is a selection of poems, a tribute to his friend Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwich who died in 2008.
