An eye-opening account of the horrors faced by Mathabane and his family while he was growing up in the most desperate ghetto in South Africa during the 1960s and 1970s. Only through the encouragement and hard work of his mother and grandmother was he able to finish school and overcome the odds placed before him. Those needing graphic confirmation of the harrowing experience of growing up poor and black in apartheid South Africa will find it in Mathabane's autobiography.
