On the couch with Stephen McGown

26 November 2021 2:08 PM

We have the pleasure of meeting someone in person with who we’ve been communicating virtually for over a year – because it was a year ago yesterday that we introduced you to Stephen McGown’s book about his time as a hostage in the Malian desert.  The book 6 Years with Al Qaeda was co-written with Tudor Caradoc Davies and became a best seller within a few weeks of its release. It was no surprise that it went on to win the Adult non-fiction category at the South African Book Awards earlier this year.
