Meet the Author: David Cohen

David Cohen

David Cohen's People Who Have Stolen From Me (2004) is the story of two Johannesburg businessmen surviving violence and corruption. Published to coincide with the tenth anniversary of apartheid's demise in South Africa, it is a social exploration of the nation's new democratic system - as reflected in the corruption at a Johannesburg furniture store and considers the factors that motivate both victims and perpetrators.

In this session, David, who had recently arrived in from Iraq, read extracts from his recent book and answered questions from the audience.

David Cohen is a journalist and author of Chasing the Red, White and Blue (2002).
