Childhood is a memory of a distant time. We look back and wonder - was that really me? This title offers a perspective of childhood in South Africa. It showcases the writing of the country's finest authors and personalities, all peering back through the mists of time, in an attempt to recall their own youth. There are recollections of profound historic moments as well as memories of everyday life. It is a title about family, siblings and communities. It highlights human warmth and its casual cruelty. Ultimately, it brings together a collection of childhood extracts which begin to define who we are as a nation.
