Too often we hear stories of South Africa’s transition from those who occupied the upper echelons of the liberation movement. Just as often we hear stories of the road from apartheid to post apartheid South Africa from those relying on other people’s memories. Singh’s book tells a story from the bottom up, his story told in the context of the broader political developments in the country. It’s honest, funny and deadly serious.
