Washington Island, WI Author and South Africa Native Publishes Memoir
August 03, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsRetracing Steps, a new book by Robert Mazibuko, has been released by RoseDog Books.
To satisfy those who wished he spoke of his childhood in his first book, "This Side Up" and still the voice of protest, Robert Mazibuko has undertaken to write the present book, which reflects on his life prior to his moving to the United States. This book and the tales told are fragmented because the telling of life can be fragmented, as the sequence of events may escape one at the time of the telling. The mystery of life is that one is expected to negotiate life at an age when one is young and unaware, and when one reaches maturity and old age, one wonders at all the stupidity they indulged in earlier. At that point there may be nothing to do but to meditate on life, without justifying wrongs but by facing up to the reality, guilty if so, and proud if proven right by life and the Books.
