內容簡介

亞馬遜網路書店2015年度好書

描述愛與第二次機會的動人作品。
作者Zelda la Grange擔任曼德拉私人助理19年,真實刻劃曼德拉的人生。

這位在南非長大的白人作者,廿歲出頭即擔任曼德拉私人助理,陪伴曼德拉走過晚年的失智歲月,文章也生動描述由於曼德拉離過兩次婚,又當過政治犯,出獄後,公務更為繁忙,這樣情况貫穿他與家人之間的疏離,讀者可以在書中感受到他們的陌生與空洞。反而是像作者這樣的外人,以及曼德拉80歲所娶的第三任妻子,反而讓曼德拉有了家的感覺與溫暖,卻也激怒了他真正的家人。

Zelda la Grange以平實的文字,近距離生活的觀察,寫下曼德拉偉大卻平凡的人生,也描述了這位改變歷史的人物是如何也轉變了作者,這年輕女子的信仰、偏見與價值觀。與其說這是曼德拉傳記,不如說是描述再偉大者當面臨年邁與疾病時,也有脆弱與真實的一面,更為貼切;也是一本描述忘年之交的動人作品。

An inspiring international bestseller, Good Morning, Mr Mandela tells the story of Zelda la Grange's incredible friendship with Nelson Mandela

Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet just a few years after the end of Apartheid she would become a most trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela, growing to respect and cherish the man she had been taught was the enemy.

Good Morning, Mr Mandela tells the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life, beliefs, prejudices and everything she once believed in utterly transformed by the greatest man of her time. It is the incredible journey of an awkward, terrified young typist in her twenties later chosen to become the President's most loyal and devoted servants, spending most of her adult working life travelling with, supporting and caring for the man she would come to call 'Khulu', or 'grandfather'.

Here Zelda la Grange pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as she knew him - a teacher who gave her the most valuable lessons of her life. A man who refused to be defined by his past, who forgave and respected all, but who was also frank, teasing and direct. As he renewed his country, he also freed Zelda from a closed world of fear and mistrust, giving her life true meaning. Now she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world.

This is a book about love and second chances. It will touch your life and make you believe that every one of us, no matter who we are or what we have done, has the power to change.

'Uplifting. . . generally charming, occasionally faintly indiscreet, but always reverent. Surely no one but Mandela - with the possible exception of the Duke of Edinburgh - could have got away with greeting the Queen with a cheery: 'Oh Elizabeth, you've lost weight!'' - Sunday Times

Compelling and ultimately heartbreaking ... her unguarded honesty allows her to tell a remarkable story - Telegraph
