BlackBird Books Responsible For Bonang Matheba Book Errors and Grammar
“We do acknowledge that there are a few typographical errors in the book, which are regrettable. As publishers of ‘black stories’, one of our most important missions is to protect the author’s voice and to keep the story as authentic as possible. It was with this in mind that when we started working with Bonang on this project, we wanted to ensure that Bonang’s voice landed as truthfully as possible, hence the direction and conversational nature of the read.”BlackBird Books, Twitter – Media Statement
The Second Version of “From A to B” By Bonang
After the controversy, the first edition of the book was recalled, the grammar and errors were corrected and the book was republished as “From A to B: Version 2”. You can buy “From A to B (Version 2) By Bonang Matheba” from Amazon because it is scarce in South Africa (mostly sold out).
