In this book, Ace Moloi writes a letter to his deceased mother. This book, this letter, is an important and necessary look at the state of our country twenty-one years into our democracy. It is the story of constantly holding your breath, hoping nothing else goes wrong. In a searing and beautiful narrative, Moloi manages to take the reader through various South African issues like the trials of child-headed families in South Africa, the volatile issue of service delivery in townships, the story of broken families, why fees must fall, and racial division in universities. Funny in parts and tragic in others, this is the ultimate South African story.
