The Journal of a Holiday Maker - London to South Africa, is the true story of an Afro-British couple (John and Shirley) who explore southern Africa for the first time and more specifically, South Africa; the story is narrated through the voice of Shirley. It is a fascinating and truly absorbing perspective on a time of great socio-political change in South Africa and Zimbabwe and Shirley displays a keen eye for how these changes are manifested in both the people and societies in general. She sets the visit very firmly in its historical context and describes with great vision, the effects of Apartheid and the prevailing political environment. The excitement of the pending release from prison of Mr. Mandela; the environment of hope for the future of South Africa; and therefore the survival of South Africa were all palpable to the holiday maker in South Africa at the time. Far from being gloomy and depressing, or forming heavy reading; The Journal of a Holiday Maker is filled with larger than life characters, that with the Author's descriptive eloquence is vividly brought to life and encouraged to play his/her part and before easing back into the shadows but leaves a lasting impression; only to be replaced by another and another. But far from being gloomy and depressing or heavy reading; The Journal of a Holiday Maker is filled with larger than life characters, who, combined with the author's descriptive eloquence makes the book come vividly alive. This is a must-read for all those who enjoy a personal Bill Brysonesque account well told.

Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, OM (9 May 1860 - 19 June 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan. The child of a family of small-town weavers, he was educated in Scotland. He moved to London, where he developed a career as a novelist and playwright. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him in writing about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about this ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. This play quickly overshadowed his previous work and although he continued to write successfully, it became his best-known work, credited with popularising the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously. Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital, which continues to benefit from them. -wikipedia
