Tightrope is collection of cutting observations written as events have unfolded in South Africa. Some published, some not, some riotously funny and as absurd as parliament itself, but all thought provoking and insightful. Because when one ignores the band stand noise, when one sees past the clowns, the Act is not that funny at all.

‘Howard’s contributions to News24 Voices are not just thought provoking, sometimes controversial and always very relevant, but his writing also regularly features among the most popular.’   Peet van Aardt, Media 24
