Graham Lesch saw the political situation of South Africa not change. Truth, reconciliation and justice and any other noble ideas of transformation were mere shadows, and in fact illusions.This book was written so that history is not distorted. Hilarious, racy and honest, Ghraham dodged both prison and racist mentality with art-fulness and humour. From his tantrum on the prison roof, to injecting cocaine to tolerate the brutal lashes, his epic escape from South Africa on foot and escaping the cycles of abuse by swallowing his Pentonville bed springs, this is an entertaining account of the power of uBuntu, patience and the great Architect of Africa.
Everyone I know who has read the book says they couldn't put it down. It is a story that needs to be told. We need to remember. And the power is in the aboslute honesty. It comes straight from the heart. Carol Buchan
