Overview

The Secret Agent by Vincent Gray

It was difficult to fathom Sheldon. He did come across as a hard line Leftist or Marxist. This was confusing for me and for the others. Was he phony or was he genuine. I could honestly not tell at the time. Anyway, whatever misgiving we may have had regarding his Leftist credentials, we were awe struck and quickly fell under his spell as he gave us an impromptu lecture on environmental activism. He spoke about ‘guerrilla gardening’ which involved planting seeds of indigenous trees in any open space within towns, cities and suburbs.

About the Author

As a son of a miner I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. I grew up on the East Rand mining town of Boksburg. I matriculated from Boksburg High School. After high school I was conscripted into the South African Defence Force for compulsory national military service when I was 17 years old. After my military service I went to the University of the Witwatersrand. After graduating with a BSc honours degree I worked for a short period for the Department of Agriculture in Potchefstroom as an agronomist. As an obligatory member of the South African Citizen Miltary Force, I was called up to do 3 month camps on the 'Border' which was the theatre of the so-called counter insurgency 'Bush War'. In between postgraduate university studies I also worked as a wage clerk on the South African Railways and as a travelling chemical sales rep. I am currently working as a molecular biologist at the University of the Witwatersrand, where I am employed to do teaching and research. My students and I are doing research into the genomics of strange and weird animals known as entomopathogenic nematodes.
