Michael Holman was Africa Editor for the Financial Times from 1977 until 2003. The first novel in his South African Trilogy, LAST ORDERS AT HARRODS; the sequel – FATBOY AND THE DANCING LADIES – was published in April 2008.
"This wickedly satirical novel is also a serious critique of Africa's troubled state"
"Gripping, informative, satirical...a road map though the social, economic and political landscape of Kenya"
- Sunday Standard, Nairobi
"Rather like Evelyn Waugh on acid meeting Alexander McCall Smith, veteran Africa journalist Michael Holman's book Last Orders at Harrods is an explosion of pure reading joy...For the sheer joy and vitality of this book Last Order at Harrods gets my vote as book of the year thus far."
- Cape Times, South Africa
"An immensely important book that fearlessly slaughters sacred cows, cuts through the rubbish and tells it as it is. The plot is educated farce, in the way that Tom Sharpe's novels are, but the message is deadly serious"
