LOVE, LIFE, DISKI
Inspired by the success of the first book, Lourens has covered the years after the events in Soccer Farm. He became a Sundowns supporter in 1989 and developed a huge love for the club over the past 31 years. Yellow Nation shares his experiences as a Sundowns supporter and shows how being part of the yellow family influenced his journey and changed the course of his life. Experiences that gives you a feeling of belonging and makes you realise why you would never want to leave this beautiful country. Yellow Nation by Lourens Erasmus is fast-paced and has all the ingredients that made Soccer Farm such a success – love, pain, humanity, humour, warmth and reconciliation. It also illustrates the uniting powers of football, and in this case the uniting role played by Sundowns Football Club in particular. His wife, Johanna Ngobela, is a guest author and shares her story in the book. Read about how her and Lourens’ paths crossed and became one, all thanks to Mamelodi Sundowns. You’ll be blown away by the spectacular story caused by an equalising goal scored in the dying minutes of a game.
Yellow Nation is available now! Soccer Farm is suitable for readers of any age and will be adapted to film in 2021. You can watch the book promo here.
