World IN BRIEF : SOUTH AFRICA : Mandela Reportedly to Publish His Story

November 06, 1989|From Times staff and wire reports

Black nationalist leader Nelson R. Mandela's autobiography will be published early next year, South Africa's largest newspaper reported. The Sunday Times said the book was secretly written by the African National Congress leader during his 27 years in prison and that the manuscript has been smuggled out. Its publication may be timed to coincide with Mandela's release, it said. Mandela's lawyer is believed to be negotiating with U.S. and British publishers, and bidding for rights to the book has reportedly reached $3 million.
