Press release:

On June 19 2014, Penguin will publish worldwide Good Morning, Mr Mandela, the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life and everything she once believed in transformed by the greatest man of her time.

Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet a few years after the end of apartheid she would become the trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela. Now she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world.

Helen Conford, publishing director, says, “This is a book that will touch your life and make you believe that every one of us, no matter who we are or what we have done, has the power to change. It has brought tears to the eyes of everyone who has read it. It shines with honesty and love. The lessons Nelson Mandela gave her as he renewed his country offer hope to everyone.”

Helen Conford acquired world English rights from Jonny Geller at Curtis Brown. Good Morning, Mr Mandela will be published by Allen Lane. Frederik de Jager at Penguin South Africa will publish in Afrikaans as well as English. Clare Ferraro and Wendy Wolf will publish at Viking US.

A percentage of royalties from the book will be donated by the author to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
