Ulla Dentlinger was born in poor, rural Rehoboth, South West Africa (now Namibia), in the early 1950s. Her family, classified Coloured by the apartheid system, changed their 'racial' classification to White. In this book she writes about her and her family's experiences and understanding of race, 'colour' and identity.

Ulla Dentlinger was educated in South Africa, raised a family in Portland, USA, and settled in Germany.
