DARK WHITE LIGHT BLACK-
Dark White Light Black probes some of the most pivotal issues facing South Africa today: race, ‘othering’, unremembering, identity, gangsterism, addiction, and the process of making meaning of a society that has become unhinged from its moorings.
The writer walks with the reader through a lion-hearted personal lens and through the purgatory of his travelogue, which starts 15 years before his birth in the tiny Eastern Cape hamlet of Breidbach. He dramatically recounts how his German grandfather robbed him of his grandparents.
Premised on that epoch-making deed, he takes the reader on a painful journey of uprooting, an agonising coming of age, and the intricacies of navigating cultural belongings and a bloodline concoction.
Next, he plummets horrifyingly into a netherworld of addiction culminating in a spine-chilling desperate act. On this treacherous odyssey to redemption, the veils of darkness lift, and he now lives in a world that is not stark black and white but where the grey mitigates the storms.
This brilliantly written documentary on transforming adversity and disillusionment into self-liberation and self-acceptance is not a leisurely read for the faint of heart. A book not to miss! – Willem S Eksteen (strategist and acclaimed communication practitioner)
An educational manual for people seeking purpose in life and those experiencing identity crises. – Dr John Mobbs, PhD in Education
