In this remarkable portrait of a city, Graeme Williams is able to show us Johannesburg through a wide-eyed viewfinder, loving his subject, yet not blind to her many difficulties and insensitivities. He presents to us a Johannesburg that flows, myriad, refracted, at odds views, each adding to our understanding of the city. We follow the path of this love affair; we feel the beauty and the tenderness. The deception and hurt. The aloneness and the abandonment. Uncaptioned it demands that we immerse ourselves in the flow. And those who have only read of Joburg will, after floating through this book, know it with intimacy, and those who know the city will find new heart in the refreshed reality.
