Rappetti was born to a colored mother and an Indian father, which was the start of a difficult childhood as it often played havoc with her identity and spelled further trouble in a traditional, unforgiving Indian family. Her parents moved to Phoenix KwaZulu-Natal, in 1985, Rappetti describes herself as ‘the youngest of five children.

One Rastafarian brother (passed away), one ex-con brother (who can dance the pants off any woman and has a wicked sense of humour), another brother who’s a big shot in the marine engineering industry (he makes a mean curry), and a sister who has the thankless task of staying at home and raising the rugrats (she has a way with words, and also makes a kick-ass briyani)’. In this moving and entertaining memoir, Iman shares stories and what she has learned from her colorful journey through life.
