Observations of post-apartheid Pretoria

2008-02-01 00:00

This first novel by Heinrich Troost will keep you on your toes and, depending on how you view such matters, will impress with its wide-ranging references to literature, history, popular culture and music.

As a legal consultant at an insurance company Van As has one of the most boring jobs on earth: as he puts it, he's a “minor functionary in the big global curtsy”. But it's the way his mind works that fascinates as he weaves his way through a number of quintessentially South African social scenarios and relationships, the pain of the past always close to the surface.
