“How can we know each other, or understand the whole of our reality, if we don’t hear each other’s stories?”
Journalist Ruda Landman, widely known for her compelling interviews, talks to prominent South Africans about their life choices and how change has affected them. A colourful mosaic of experience emerges as people share stories – from changing careers to coming out, losing a partner or following a calling.
The book includes insights by the likes of John Kani, Ferial Haffajee, Pieter-Dirk Uys, Katlego Maboe, Gugu Zulu, Zapiro, ProVerb, Arno Carstens, “Mam’ Khanyi” (who takes in street children and orphans), Nick Binnedell and Marc Lottering.
Revealing and wise, their stories will touch your heart.
