Writing What We Like: A New Generation Speaks | Current Affairs & Issues
‘We still dream, but the innocence of the promise of freedom is lost.’
From the serious to the lighthearted, this book presents a snapshot of what smart young South Africans think about living in South Africa today. From black tax and whitesplaining, all the way to hip hop and kinky sex, it is provocative, fearlessly honest, and often very funny.
Shaka Sisulu tackles being black and privileged, Simphiwe Dana pleads for mother tongue education, Yolisa Qunta shares lessons learnt from taking the taxi, while David Kau, Loyiso Gola and Sivuyile Ngesi provide comic relief.
Writing what we like will spark debates in workplaces, in bars, and around the dinner table both ekasi and in the suburbs for some time to come.
