Nathan Trantraal's translation into Kaaps of a novel by African American author Jason Reynolds. Narrated in short, staccato narrative verse, the story takes place over sixty seconds - the time it takes a fifteen-year-old to decide whether or not he’s going to murder the man who killed his brother. Kaaps is a dialect spoken in the Western Cape.

Nathan Trantraal is the author of Wit Issie 'n Colour Nie, aangedrade stories and the poetry collection Alles Het Niet Kom Wod. His first collection of poetry, Chokers en Survivors won the 2014 AKTV Woordfees Prize for poetry and the 2015 Ingrid Jonker Prize.
