Book Review – Nudes: Addressing and Undressing My Truth


by Siyanda Kakana (Amazon) ISBN: 978-1521899731

Nudes is a collection of thoughts or blogs by the author who is grappling with her childhood abuse and current adult relationships.

She veers between being strong and defiant to being insecure and vulnerable. Reconciling her past and present is not straightforward but she feels the need to vent her anger and frustration to heal.

A twenty-five year old mother of a young boy, Siyanda does not want to repeat her mother’s mistakes and traumatise her own child but how will she be able to prevent this pattern from recurring?

Nudes is a quick but deep read into the mind of this brave young woman.
