Are We There Yet? Chasing A Childhood Through South Africa

Author: David Smiedt



In 2003 David Smiedt travelled to South Africa to find a very different country to the one he and his family left in 1989. Growing up in Johannesburg, he had a typical Apartheid-era white childhood. Now, in a post-Apartheid nation full of confusion and contradictions, David journeys across the country in search of a father he’s almost forgotten. From Soweto to Cape Town, from Kruger to Kimberley, what he finds is shocking, entrancing, surreal and stunningly beautiful. Are We There Yet? is both warmly funny and intensely moving – a rare and timely tribute to a complex country.
