Scars that Shine brings Syd Kitchen’s voice to life, writes Derek Davey

Syd Kitchen - Scars That Shine

Derek Davey recently reviewed Donvé Lee’s biography of musician Syd Kitchen, Scars that Shine, for the Mail & Guardian.

Davey lauded Lee’s use of writing in the first person narrative, as he asks himself “Did Syd write this? If so, when and how? This book comes across as an autobiography.”

Davey adds that the employment of Lee’s present tense writing “really works” in capturing this legendary South African artist’s essence.
