Perfect husband. Perfect father. Perfect liar?

Leon van Nierop se blitsverkoper Plesierengel verskyn twintig jaar gelede en dit is in hierdie boek waar duisende lesers vir Tristan Hansen ontmoet, ’n engel van plesier, ’n manlike prostituut waarvoor Johannesburg se rykste vroue duisende rande betaal.
Dit is egter nie die volle verhaal nie: hoe het die enigmatiese Tristan tot hier gekom? In Katelknaap kry die leser ’n blik op die vroue wat hom gevorm het en van genot geleer het. Veral saam met een vrou, ver weg in Positano, ’n dorpie in ItaliŽ, kon hy hom loswikkel van die beklemming van sy konserwatiewe ma wat hom nŠ sy pa se selfmoord alleen grootmaak.
Maar dit was ook nie die laaste beklemming nie. Op die vooraand van Tristan se 27ste verjaardag vind ons hom in sy luukse dakwoonstel in Maboneng, onrustig nŠ ’n vreemde foonoproep vol dreigende stilte. Terwyl hy kan voel hoe hy deur ’n verkyker dopgehou word en dat die afloerder met iets anders as begeerte na hom kyk, reik sy herinneringe terug na gelukkiger dae in Positano, en na sy opleiding in die kuns van liefdemaak.
‘Those in the know claim Michael K disembarked from a diesel-smoke-spewing truck one overcast morning, looked around, and without missing a beat, chose a spot where he set down a small bucket (red, burnt and disfigured) that contained an assortment of seedlings, some fisherman’s twine and a rudimentary gardening tool – probably self-made.’
How is it that a character from literary fiction can so alter the landscapes he touches, even as he – in his self-imposed isolation – seeks to avoid them? How is it that Michael K, bewildered and bewildering, can remain so fragile yet so present, so imposing without attempting to be so? In this response to JM Coetzee’s classic masterpiece, Life & Times of Michael K, Nthikeng Mohlele dabbles in the artistic and speculative in a unique attempt to unpack the dazed and disconnected world of the title character, his solitary ways, his inventiveness, but also to show how astutely Michael K holds up a mirror to those whose paths he inadvertently crosses. Michael K explores the weight of history and of conscience, thus wrestling the character from the confines of literary creation to the frontiers of artistic timelessness.
