“My Unfiltered Sort of Story” – Gareth Crocker Chats About Ka-Boom (Podcast)

Ka-BoomGareth Crocker was recently interviewed by Jenny Crwys-Williams and Redi Tlhabi on The Book Show on CapeTalk about his newly published memoir Ka-Boom.

In the interview, Crocker talks about why he wanted to write this book. He says that his first work of non-fiction “was a bit of an experiment”.

“I wanted to write something that wouldn’t necessarily be censored in any sort of way; it was going to be my unfiltered sort of story,” Crocker says.

Crocker goes on to explain the type of reader he hopes to reach with this book – people who are not “big readers”. He also shares some of the anecdotes he relates in his memoir, including an illegal ride on a truck after he and his friends had spent their bus fare in downtown Johannesburg.

Crwys-Williams says: “I do admire your mother, after all the things you did as a child.”
