    Some people are critising Trevor for not buying her grandmother a house and new furniture. Just to let you know, if you read Trevor's book Born a Crime, Trevor explains that gogo doesn't want her furniture refurbished and certainly she doesn't want to be moved. And that applies to all our South African gogo's actually, the furniture and the house is part of them, they don't define success by flashy things but are content with life and memories!

    That is a quick minded lady. Awesome interview. It would be wonderful to see more of South Africa from Trevor's point of view. There must be an endless amount of stories to tell.
