TWO TONS O’ FUN
by Fred Khumalo
So well written with empathy and humour, Fred Khumalo has somehow managed to understand the mind and thoughts of a 14 year old girl, Lerato, despite being an older man himself. Underlying the humour is a portrait of current life in the turmoil of Alexandra, a massive township close to Johannesburg. The characters are so true, the escapades of the young girls, the love of family and complicated friendships along with the desire to learn and discover a larger world, when all put together, make this a fun read as well as being informative. The introduction of current well-known people, other authors and incidents flavour this book as an up-to-date account of life in South Africa.
