“During the pandemic, Kim Stephens gave us a gift; she helped many of us see the lighter side to a very dark situation, like a breath of fresh air; she gave us a different perspective, and this book will do that all again.”
Johannesburg, South Africa (05 August 2022) – Kim Stephens – one of our favourite writers in South Africa – has really helped South Africa deal with the trauma of the past two years with humour, and we love that she is keeping it up in 2022, but this time in a WHOLE book!
The incredibly talented writer gave us the top 10 middle-class quarantine categories, a hilarious depiction of how confusing level 4 actually was, the beauty truths of the burbs during the lockdown, the runners versus smokers debacle, and she weighed in (hilariously) about how everyone in South Africa suddenly became an expert on nearly everything.
Kim went viral more times than we can count on one hand, and because of this, Kim found the courage to put it all, and more, into a book.
“During the pandemic, Kim gave us a gift; she helped many of us see the lighter side to a very dark situation, like a breath of fresh air; she gave us a different perspective, and this book will do that all again,” Brent Lindeque.
Hold the Line tells the story of teenage pregnancy, the situational blindness of white South Africa, the disappointment of divorce and the deep joy found through true awakening. Stitched together with the lockdown writing that Kim penned for a growing base of followers, she shares a more in-depth life story with her usual candid self-deprecation.
