Morné Malan
Biographical info

Morné was born and bred in Benoni on the East Rand. He is therefore quite intimately acquainted with colourless mine dumps, dull steel factories, black veld fires, frost blankets and the growl of hotrods on a Friday night. In high school he wrote, directed and acted in plays like it was going out of fashion, and earned an ATKV medal of honour for a new one-act play that, to his great embarrassment, is still doing the rounds today. After school he studied drama at the University of Pretoria and it is during this time that the play Sonder vlerke saw the light – a text that would become the book Suiderkruis ten years later. This novel won the debut category of the Sanlam/Insig Groot Romanwedstryd in 2007. Morné graduated with a PhD in English from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2009.
