‘It’s basically my life story, but with a lot of spice’ – Yusuf Daniels chats about the incredible success of his book Living Coloured
More about the book!
Author Yusuf Daniels chatted to SAPA+ recently about how his book Living Coloured (Because Black & White Were Already Taken) came to be.
Living Coloured is a glimpse into the joy and often harsh reality of growing up on the Cape Flats.
From the nightclubbing at Space Odyssey and the shenanigans at the Mitchells Plain public swimming pool, to the traditions of delectable food exchanges during Ramadan between Muslims and Christians alike, this book truly is a tribute to all that large parts of the Coloured community holds dear.
Daniels’s stories were birthed as Facebook updates that garnered large reactions from his friends, who encouraged him to write more.
‘It’s basically my life story, but with a lot of spice, a lot of deurmekaarness, a lot of lekkerness!’ the author says.
