Description on Amazon:
In “Going Back to Say Goodbye: A Boyhood on the Mine” Kenneth de Kok describes his childhood in Stilfontein, a small mining town in the Western Transvaal.
Set in the late 1950s, and seen through the eyes of the young Kenneth, the story immerses the reader in a world of bicycle races down dirt roads, adventures in the veld, kleilat fights, childhood pacts and seaside holidays.
It’s a world of Post Toasties, chickenpox, pellet guns and catties – a universe populated by brothers and sisters, grown-ups, by Grandma and Grandpa.
A sensitively written memoir about the relationship between fathers and sons, and about growing up.
