"Browde writes a precise, elegant prose, warmed by an appealing candour and understated lyricism."

- Ivan Vladislavic, author of Portrait with Keys

 

"Daniel Browde's account of Jules Browde's life is rich, engaging, intriguing and delightful ... Crammed with human and historical interest."

– Edwin Cameron, Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa

 

"If this were a novel, critics would hail [Jules Browde] as a brilliantly realised character with an unforgettable voice."

- Joe Lelyveld, former executive editor of The New York Times

The Relatively Public Life of Jules Browde is more than the portrait of an unusual South African life: it is the moving tale of a complex and tender relationship between grandfather and grandson, and an exploration of how we are made and unmade in the stories we tell about our lives.
