Author Darrel Bristow-Bovey launched his book, Finding Endurance, at Constantia Exclusive Books on Wednesday July 12. He was in conversation with newspaper columnist Tom Eaton, of Constantia, about the author’s fascination with Sir Ernest Shackleton’s lost ship, Endurance, and one of the greatest survival stories of all time. Endurance was discovered below the Weddell Sea, in Antarctic ice in March 2022, 106 years after it sank.

Bristow-Bovey is a prize-winning screenwriter, travel writer and a newspaper and magazine columnist. He’s the author of five books which have been translated into seven languages. He was born in South Africa, studied under JM Coetzee and Andre Brink, and currently divides his time between Cape Town, a hillside on the Greek Peloponnese and England.
