White Chalk will blow you away by its honesty, depth and insightfulness ~ Lorraine Sithole
Don’t jella, vang tips. That’s what these girls need to understand. They can’t be near that I am the most beautiful girl in school, and now it’s going to be worse because I will be the Beyoncé of the banquet. Jassis, what do they then think? Not even the first princess comes close. I will be the winner by far, and all the girlies are going to choke.
Following on from the critical acclaim of Those Who Live in Cages, Terry-Ann Adam’s latest book, White Chalk, is a collection of short stories set in Eldorado Park, the site of Terry-Ann’s inspiration. Her sentences positively glow as she documents the wonders and sadnesses of everyday life. These rich and powerful stories confirm Terry-Ann Adams’ place as one of the brightest stars of new South African writing.
