Shirley, Goodness & Mercy by Chris van Wyk

This was  my latest book read and I devoured it.  Could not get enough of leaving the pages although the theme is one of which I thought I have tired.  But how could I tire of a topic that influenced our lives so dramatically and tragically.  How can I be so bourgouis to say that I don’t want to read more struggle books?  Chris van Wyk lived a life enforced by Apartheid and is only one of many who experienced the results first hand. Shirley, Goodness & Mercy is an honest and often tongue in cheeck depiction of urban separation.  I found myself laughing and smiling while reading the short experiences of Chris van Wyk’s life.  I can’t wait to read his latest book Eggs to lay and Chickens to hatch.
