Getting a book out of Africa

Alec Russell, the affable and charming Johannesburg correspondent for the pink ‘un, the Financial Times, is to write a book.

He’s taking leave of absence soon, and the book will be about his second sojourn in sunny South Africa – his first was for The Daily Telegraph.

Russell, one-time foreign editor of the Telegraph, and Washington correspondent until Con Coughlin sacked him, is heading back to London with his family in the autumn to become world news editor for the FT.
