Guest : Chase Rhys
The debut novel by Cape Town author Chase Rhys tells the four cape flats yound adults
as they navigate growing up in violent and trying conditions.
But it also tells the story about dreams, aspirations, that are caught up and stifled in the
perpetual cycle of gangs, drugs, crime, and poverty.
It's the story of some many people's lives in Cape Town.
But what was interesting for me,
Is that it's a story written almost entirely in Kaaps,
or Cape Flats vernacular. It's afrikaans, but it's almost not.
It is its own language.
