Don’t miss Clinton Chauke at Exclusive Books Menlyn Park for the launch of Born in Chains: The Diary of an Angry ‘Born-Free’
More about the book!
Jonathan Ball Publishers and Exclusive Books Menlyn Park invite you to the launch of Born in Chains by Clinton Chauke.
Clinton will be in conversation with rapper and poet Sho Madjozi.
Having been raised alongside his two sisters in a remote village bordering the Kruger National Park and a squatter camp outside Pretoria, Clinton Chauke knows what it’s like to be born dirt-poor in South Africa.
In Born In Chains Clinton writes about negotiating the pitfalls and lifelines of a young life: crime and drugs, football, religion, friendship, school, circumcision and, ultimately, becoming a man. Throughout it all, he displays determination as well as a self-deprecating humour that will keep you turning the pages till the end.
Clinton’s story is one that will give you hope that even in a sea of poverty there are those that refuse to give up and, ultimately, succeed.
Date: 12 June 2018
