Melk (2de uitgawe) | Short Stories & Fiction Anthologies
Presented here is her first collection of short stories: impressions collected over many African journeys that developed, after almost a decade of rumination, into these revealing and disturbing renditions. In these ten tales, each one unforgettable and unique, Africa is broken open for us like bread. Here it is expressed like seldom before – the violence and beauty of Africa we are only getting to know now. Africa speaks here in a tongue that no-one can deny – in Afrikaans.
Melk is actuality prose of the highest order. It compels one as reader to re-evaluate one’s stance and assumptions vis-à-vis our continent, always in the innermost human terms. It is a contemporary literary work of which may be said with the fullest confidence that it will endure far beyond these times.
