Is Sagie | General Fiction
Jan van Tonder
Human & Rousseau
A deceptively simple story set in the Klein Karoo, it explores the world of innocence with great poignancy.
Sagie is a guileless and childlike young man who helps his father on their farm. He makes friends with the daughter of their new neighbours but their love has little chance in a society where other and more sophisticated skills are needed to survive.
A reissue for the trade of a novel which was first published in 1987.
