A beautifully written memoir by South African journalist and Cape Talk Radio presenter, Sara-Jayne King. Illegally conceived in the 80s, she was smuggled out of the country and adopted by a British couple and christened Sarah Jane (which she later changed to Sara-Jayne). Her childhood started off idyllic but became increasingly difficult and fraught. She turned to various escape measures and developed addictions that, in turn, only exacerbated a fragile sense of worth. Rallying, she returned to South Africa to confront her past and create a new life for herself. Her memoir is both heartfelt and authentically narrated. King was on the author list at the recent Open Book Festival in Cape Town, where she took part in various talks regarding memoir-writing and identity.
