Are We There Yet? by David Smiedt

Book Description

'A story of South Africa past and present - humorous, elegantly written and deeply evocative.' - Bryce Courtenay In a nation full of confusion and contradictions, David Smiedt journeys across South Africa in search of a father he's almost forgotten. From Soweto to Cape Town, from Kruger to Kimberley, what he finds is shocking, entrancing, surreal and stunningly beautiful. Endorsed by Australia's best-selling author, this travel memoir offers a rare and timely tribute to a complex country. Warmly funny and intensely moving, Are We There Yet? will appeal to travellers, expatriates and readers who enjoyed such travel memoirs as the recent hit, Almost French.

Author Biography - David Smiedt

David Smiedt was born in South Africa in 1968 and migrated to Australia at the age of 18. He spent the next three years at Macquarie University in Sydney, where he frequently used the word 'postmodern' erroneously and out of context. He went on to betray his sex in magazines such as Cleo, New Woman, marie claire, Cosmopolitan and ELLE. His first book, Boom Boom: 100 Years of Australian Comedy, co-written with Rob Johnson, was published in 1999. Smiedt maintains a shallow illusion of quasi-bohemianism by consuming too many things he shouldn't and too few of the things he should in the inner-city Sydney suburb where he lives with his wife and a poodle.
