“Searing, heartbreaking, triumphant: Brutal Legacy is for anyone who’s been punched in the face by someone they loved and then stood up again. It’s for every mother who has run, every sister who has picked up the pieces and every friend who hasn’t fled. It’s for every brother who’s cried and for the children who have watched. Every South African should read it.”
– Sisonke Msimang, author of Always Another Country
MFBooks Joburg invites you to the launch of Brutal Legacy: A Memoir by Tracy Going.
When South Africa’s golden girl of broadcasting Tracy Going’s battered face was splashed across the media back in the late 1990s, the nation was shocked. What had started off as a fairy tale romance with a man who appeared to be everything that Going was looking for – charming, handsome and successful – had quickly descended into a violent, abusive relationship. Brilliantly penned, this highly skilled debut memoir, is ultimately uplifting in the realisation that healing is a lengthy and often arduous process and that self-forgiveness and acceptance is essential in order to fully embrace life.
