An autobiographical fiction, Mbathas book examines what happens when two cultures-black and white-finally join forces to help each other through art. With wit and insight, Mbatha shows how multiculturalism can be a solution rather than a problem. Ecstasy, Creativity and Identity Amid Ironclad Chaos is also the story of two very different families, the black Lendebeles and the white Kalagaans. Together, these two families grapple with changing mores about race and new ideas about creativity. Eventually, they start a feminist art club together, using artistic expression to make bold statements about mans place in the world today. Gripping, funny, and moving, Ecstasy Creativity and Identity Amid Ironclad Chaos is a stunning look at art, apartheid, and the common goals of man.
