Podcast: Mark Gevisser Tells John Maytham About His “Atlas”, Lost and Found in Johannesburg

Lost and Found in JohannesburgMark Gevisser joined John Maytham in studio at 567 Cape Talk to discuss his recently published book, Lost and Found in Johannesburg.

“He writes so well and he thinks so clearly and the link between his brain and his pen is so sharp, focused and lucent,” Maytham says of Gevisser, while introducing his book. “It’s a biography of Mark, sort of; it’s a biography of Johannesburg, sort of; but it’s more than both of those things put together.”

Gevisser explains that he thinks of the book as an atlas: “It works with maps and photographs and it begins with a story of me and my obsession with maps as a little boy.”
