This Is How It Is




Jacana/ Fanele, 2018

We forget that the most daring thing we can do is to allow ourselves to be seen. To stand before the world and to say this is who I am. This is how it is.’ Bongani Kona

This Is How It Is is the Life Righting Collective’s first anthology published in May 2018, a collection of 54 real life South African stories written by members of the LRC.

‘Refreshing, poignant and wide-ranging, this collection surprises with unusual perspectives and gives voice to a broad array of talents’ – Helen Moffett
