Description

Confrontation is a memoir based on real events. Set in the early nineties, it follows the journey of a child growing up in South-Africa’s season of change.

But all is not as it seems – biologically, domestically, emotionally – three words that immediately takes shape like the head, neck and tail of a monster brooding beneath the bed.

Domestic unrest casts a thick veil over a much greater problem.

“One of your greatest challenges in this world, my darling, would be men … It’s a shame because you think you’re the relationship type?”

So-called advice from a friend who suggested being gay might be a better option than what she was contemplating. Not that she had a choice. She wasn’t entirely herself yet, and that was the problem.

Kirsty Steinberg is the pen name for the author. Confrontation is her debut work.

****

Confrontation is ’n memoir wat uit werklike gebeure voortspruit. Met die vroeeë negentiger jare in die agtergrond, volg die verhaal die pad van ‘n kind, gedurende die seisoen van verandering.

Maar alles is nie soos dit voorkom nie – biologiese uitdagings,
huihoudelike geweld, emotionele onrus – die woorde wat lewe in die lyf van ‘n groot monster blaas. Die monster wat onder die bed van ‘n kind broei.
Vir jare trek die temas van huisoudelike onrus ‘n digte sluier oor groter probleme.

“One of your greatest challenges in this world, my darling, would be men … It’s a shame because you think you’re the relationship type?”

Die sogenaamde raad van ‘n vriend, wat wou voorstel sy moet liewers probeer gay wees. Voor sy haar enigste uitweg aangryp. Maar wat ander sukkel om te verstaan – daar is geen ander keuse. Inteendeel, sy was nog nooit haarself, en it was die probleem.

Kirsty Steinberg is die skrywer se skuilnaam. Confrontation is haar debuutwerk.
