About this book

Op 'n galop na Buckingham-Paleis (ePub) | Short Stories & Fiction Anthologies

Naas Steenkamp

An entertaining book about a young man finding his feet in the diplomatic service in London in the turbulent early 1960s, told with disarming honesty and humour.

Naas Steenkamp was Private Secretary to the South African High Commissioner and a member of Prime Minister Verwoerd’s delegation at the time of South Africa's withdrawal from the Commonwealth. The reader hears about the faux pas, Palace protocol, the infighting, the work of secret agents.

What makes this book special is the author’s ability to look objectively at himself and the events around him.
