Ronnie Govender has always found himself in the thick of things. In the Manure is the distinguished writer-playwright's look back on his long and varied career. At once light-hearted and deadly serious, In the Manure unlocks the hidden histories of sports, journalism and the arts in this country, and explores the legacy of the indentured Indian labourers who built the community of Cato Manor and made major contributions particularly to political change and the nation's economy. But this is also a deeply personal story in which the writer, assuming the persona of his alter ego, Sathie, looks back on his childhood in Cato Manor, his misspent schooldays and his early forays into journalism, teaching and the theatre.
