In a blatantly honest analysis of his youth, upbringing and eventual success, in typical manner Uys does not pull the punches when talking about his own shortcomings and those of his alter-ego, the inimitable Evita Bezuidenhout, who has interviewed everyone from Nelson Mandela to Bishop Desmond Tutu and entertained Oprah Winfrey.
But Evita does have her drawbacks - Uys can never go to the toilet when he is Evita because he is not sure which one to use.
But the man who puts our brutalised past into perspective with humour has a wry look at the past when he could say in English what he dared not whisper in Afrikaans because of the tough censorship laws.
The highlight of the Funigalore TV series, when Evita interviewed famous people, was the interview with Mandela.
He turned and espied Evita.He beamed that perfect smile. ‘Evita my dear, ah, you are so beautiful'."
When asked why he had agreed to be on the show, Mandela said: "No, no, Pieter.I wanted to be on Evita's show because I have important things to say and nobody watches the news."
"By now the woman I had created in the Sunday Express column, already called Evita, was well known enough to open the show."And that was the start of her career.
Evita, at first the wife of a National Party MP, was able to gossip and whisper about fresh scandals and told secrets best left unsaid.
And so she became the South African ambassador to the independent homeland republic of Bapetikoswete, a homeland with a lavish hotel and casino, where South African law was put on hold and tits flashed.
The book also looks at Uys's own relationships with Evita.
But it is now his Aids work which has become his mission.
