What Genius Wrote This?
Tales from my Newspaper Life
by Richard McNeill

Entertaining narrative of the author’s newspaper life from hot-metal to modern computers. Richard McNeill grew up in South Africa but his career took him from Johannesburg to New York and London, where he spent 20 years on the Daily Express. “As it turned out, becoming an Editor with a capital E was the best thing that never happened to me,” he writes. Instead he enjoyed a life of “enormous satisfaction” as a reporter, foreign correspondent, sub-editor, feature writer, magazine publisher, editorial consultant and celebrity profiler, while also pursuing his passion for typographical design.

Back in South Africa he spent 11 years on the Johannesburg Sunday Times, and later helped produce South Africa’s Daily Sun, the post-apartheid tabloid aimed at the emerging black market, turning it into the country’s biggest-selling daily newspaper. He lives in Lake Michelle, Western Cape.
