About the Book

It’s been more than a decade since losing his mother, and Ace Moloi has tried in vain to wish away some persistent questions about grief and healing. Finally, in his intimate, emotional, and yet brave, letter to his mother, he draws the strength to confront the suspended trauma of his childhood. What’s more, he is kind enough to invite all of us to eavesdrop on this necessary conversation.

Ace’s is an all-encompassing South African story, a true reflection of the country we live in 21 years into democracy. It also a heart-wrenching account of one boy’s journey from having been loved to a life where love is a but a distant memory. It is as beautifully written as it is searing-funny in parts and tragic in others, offering the experience of what it feels like to constantly hold your breath, hoping nothing else goes wrong.
