Going Back to Say Goodbye (ePub) | General Fiction

Kenneth de Kok


In this novel Kenneth de Kok describes his childhood in Stilfontein, a small mining town in the Transvaal. Set in the 1950s, the story immerses the reader in a world of bicycle races down dirt roads, kleilat fights, childhood pacts and seaside holidays. It’s a world of Post Toasties, chickenpox, pellet guns and catties – a universe populated by siblings and grown-ups, by Grandma and Grandpa. It’s a memoir about fathers and sons and growing up.
