Oom Kootjie Emmer (ePub) | General Fiction
André P. Brink
Human & Rousseau
A reissue of a light-hearted satire which was first published in 1973. Oom Kootjie Emmer (Bucket) is the undertaker and driver of the nightcart in the small town of Witgatworteldraai. Humorous anecdotes about village life and characters: the dominee, the police sergeant, widows and widowers – a wonderful array of characters. And how Oom Kootjie slyly plots and plans to get the bucket system in their village replaced by flush toilets. Delightfully funny!
