Mandela: SA's greatest son laid to rest (slideshow)
The world watched as Nelson Mandela was finally laid to rest in his hometown of Qunu following a dignified and moving funeral ceremony on Sunday.
A book painting an intimate portrait of Nelson Mandela went on sale Tuesday, offering readers a glimpse at letters and diaries for a more personal look at one of the world's most revered figures.
Conversations with Myself brings together correspondence, personal notes and hours of recordings with an unfinished autobiography that would have been a sequel to Mandela's world-famous memoir, Long Walk to Freedom, published in 1995.
Publisher PQ Blackwell and the Nelson Mandela Foundation said the book will give readers access to the private man behind the public figure who led South Africa's struggle against white-minority rule and served as its first democratically elected president.
The foundation compiled the book using documents from its archives. The book will be published in 22 countries and 20 languages.
'I would have liked a few more customers'
In South Africa, several bookstores held early-morning launch events to celebrate the arrival of what is widely expected to be the 92-year-old Mandela's last book.
John Fawcett-Peck, manager of a Johannesburg bookstore that promised readers a free coffee with purchase of Conversations with Myself, called it "definitely the book of the year".
But publicity around the book has been relatively quiet in South Africa.
About 20 customers queued to buy copies at the 8am opening of Fawcett-Peck's store. But within 30 minutes, the shop's clerks were sitting idly at their cash registers, untouched piles of the book stacked seven high on the counter.
"I would have liked a few more" customers, Fawcett-Peck said.
He added that Mandela himself had attended the launch of his previous book. At that event, the presence of Madiba helped the store sell 1 000 copies the first day. -- AFP
