When you read about Khanyi Mbau’s reaction to the break up of her mother’s marriage (“Khanyi was overjoyed”) and her recollection of Brenda Fassie’s memorial (“it was as if I was the star of the memorial!”), you know you’re dealing with a deeply unlovely person.
It makes it difficult to avoid the instinctive feelings of distaste that this book has already prompted across a wide spectrum of people. For example, reading the description of Mbau’s idea of being a good mother is guaranteed to make any middle class parent wince: “Khanyi also tries to be there on her daughter’s special days, like her birthday.”
