Here at last is the long-awaited account of Richard Rive, that strongman and polemicist of the 1960s generation of South African letters. Some 15 years in the making, it has won its subject’s friend and collaborator, Shaun Viljoen, a doctorate and a position on the staff of Stellenbosch University.
It is handsomely packaged and comes garlanded with commendatory shouts from the correct academic luminaries and key followers, although whether they have actually read the text must remain in question. Unfortunately, it is replete with evasions and even plain errors.
