A warm, evocative tale of a grown-up journey to discover a South African childhood
David Smiedt was born in Johannesburg and lives in Sydney, but is yet to grow up anywhere. He has written for a wide array of publications and is the first and only Australian journalist to have articles in concurrent issues of Ralph and Your Garden. He is inordinately fond of pink cocktails but is allergic to bee-stings and people who use the phrase, 'it's all good'.
