Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite
Truth, Lies & Propaganda in Africa (Truth, Lies and Propaganda Book 1) by Lucinda E. Clarke is an engaging and powerful memoir that takes readers on a journey from that of a primary school teacher, to announcing on the radio, to scriptwriting for radio and television, and then branching out into the world of video production. The author focuses more on her stint with the SABC, and she gives readers a peek of what it is like to work on radio and television, with humor and wit, and reveals that it is not at all glamorous to work behind the scenes if you are in the media. For all those who want to know what goes on behind the camera, this memoir is a good read and also explains how programmes are put together.

The book is interesting and readers get an insight on what it was like to be an expatriate and live in apartheid, South Africa. The author chronicles many funny incidents she has experienced while working with the media and she speaks about them extensively. The book also throws light on the political world and gives an inside look into the author's entertaining experiences and adventures. I found the author's experiences challenging and she captures the attention of readers with her excellent style of writing and good narration. The memoir is an eye-opener for readers who are caught up in the glamour of radio and television, and many times the author's frustrations and difficulties are palpable while one is reading.
