Coming Out Coming Home is the simple story of Karen's passage from childhood to middle age, finding her way home through unexpected turns. Born in Durban, her average white suburban childhood disintegrated with her parents’ divorce and ensuing traumas.
A spiritual experience during college caused her to throw herself into the church. She was introduced to many adventures including working in Alexandra Township during the riots, smuggling Bibles into China, and much more. After starting a church in KwaZulu Natal, she struggled to fit into the role of the pastor’s wife. The memoir records all the chaos of her story of falling in love with a woman.
