I must admit that, I am one of those that felt Zakes was much too young to write an autobiographical account of his life. On second thought, and as a South African, I was impressed by the honesty, candour and forthrightness of the account. As always, Zakes style of writing is refreshingly different. He tells his story in a manner that i would wish my brother, friend and close acquaintance would relate and narrate to me. Writing and literature made simple, as in almost all of his earlier works. I am also in the privileged position of knowing some of the characters, living and dead. Zakes, should write a sequel on how he survived exposing his very soul at such an early age. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
