Whitewashing my yellow bones

Literary journalist Karabo Kgoleng says you have to take your time to enjoy reading the 41 pages of this book.

Refiloe Mpakanyane Karabo Kgoleng chats to about the review of Nisi Daniels's book Whitewashing my yellow bones.

It's 41 pages long. It's not a short story. It is a memoir but not really, it's also a musings but not quite. It's also about her family and the mystery of South Africa that is in her bones.

Karabo Kgoleng, Literary journalist

You and I can read 41 pages in, like, 10 minutes. This one you have to take your time with it, maybe move to another chair and sit by the window with some light, maybe close the curtains afterwards.

Essentially this is one book where I didn't get an AI (advertising information) for this one. What usually happens is that publishers will send you an AI and you get an idea of what to say about the book, but this one doesn't work that way.
