Guest from Johannesburg, A Novel by Donald McPhail (2019)
This carefully crafted book is replete with memorable characters. It’s a coming of age story that carries protagonist Duff Malone from his days as an energetic young cruise director to respected Pan Am executive, from violent pre-war Asia in the 1930s to America's tumultuous Vietnam protest years of the 1970s. Set in Hawaii, it presents informed and affectionate insights about Hawaiian attitudes and cultures.
“I didn't want it to end. McPhail's characters are people I wish I knew personally.” -- Kevin Carroll, Author "A Moment's Pause For Gratitude"
