About the book

Title: Yellow and confused – Born in Taiwan, raised in South Africa and making sense of it all
Author: Ming-Cheau Lin
Publisher: Kwela
ISBN: 9780795709203

Ming-Cheau Lin’s family emigrated from Taiwan to South Africa when she was three.

Growing up in the largely Afrikaans Bloemfontein, in a small East Asian community, she was always the outsider. Too ‘yellow’ for the whites, but ‘not Asian enough’ when she didn’t conform to the rules.

Lin shares her personal journey as she tries to understand and rise above the hurdles she has experienced. Yellow and confused provides a colourful and engaging look into an authentic and uniquely South African life.
