Doodloopstraat: Die dood trap in jou spoor (Afrikaans, Paperback): Leon van Nierop Doodloopstraat: Die dood trap in jou spoor (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Leon van Nierop
R153 Discovery Miles 1 530 In stock

Sy draai stadig om.“Hy is die doodsengel.” “Ekskuus?” “Die dood trap elke dag in se sy sag. “Oral waar hy gaan, sal die dood hom inhaal. Hy kan nie meer daarvan vlug nie. Sy tyd het aangebreek.” Lourens Schoeman veroorsaak ’n beroering met sy aankoms op ’n dorpie in Botswana. Die gemeenskap wonder hoekom die aantreklike jong man ’n pak klere dra ten spyte van geweldige hitte en waarom daar soveel hartseer in sy oe skuil. Maar hy swyg soos die graf oor sy verlede. Toe Elzaan Jonker dit regkry om Lourens effens beter te leer ken, besluit sy om ondersoek in te stel. Sy is vasbeslote om uit te vind wat hom jaag en hoekom ’n plaaslike inwoner glo dat hy die doodsengel is. Doodloopstraat het oorspronklik in 1997 as ’n vervolgverhaal in Keur verskyn, en is in 2002 as roman gepubliseer. Hierdie boek is ’n verwerkte weergawe van die 2002-publikasie.

Sestig jaar na Herman Charles Bosman se dood het die eerste Afrikaanse bundel Oom Schalk Lourens-stories verskyn (In die withaak se skadu, Suiderkruis Boeke, 2011). Dit is besonder goed ontvang, en het gunstige kommentaar ontlok van skrywers soos Andre P. Brink, P.G. du Plessis, Pieter Fourie en Paul C. Venter. Die jaar daarna het ’n Bekkersdalmarathon en ander Voorkamerstories (Suiderkruis Boeke, 2012) die lig gesien, wat sowat die helfte van Bosman se bekende stories oor Jurie Steyn se plaasposkantoor bevat. Dit was die eerste Bosman-bundel wat deur Fred Mouton geillustreer is. Die oorweldigend positiewe terugvoer oor die Bosman/Moutonkombinasie het dit voor die hand liggend gemaak dat Fred ook oom Schalk se stories onder hande moet neem. Mafeking-pad kombineer dus vir die eerste keer Bosman se gewildste verhale – wat van 1947 af nog nooit uit druk uit was nie – met Fred Mouton se kenmerkende styl. Die resultaat is eg Afrikaanse lekkerte!

Arguably the most enduring collection of South African short-fiction, Mafeking Road has never been out of print since its first publication in 1947. Although Roy Campbell wrote to Herman Charles Bosman, “I think your stories in Mafeking Road are the best that ever came out of South Africa,” Bosman himself was not quite happy with the text. “I was in such a hurry … that I didn’t do what I had always intended: i.e. to restore them as far as possible to the way they were originally, when I wrote them,” he replied. Now, for the first time, Bosman’s stories have been restored to the original 1930s (magazine) versions, which adds some 1 300 words of never-before-seen Bosman-isms to the text. Added to this is Fred Mouton’s signature style illustrations, which make this, quite simply, the best version of Mafeking Road ever published. Bosman would approve.

Weer neurie die kind lispelend en vervelig herhaalde kere sy liedjie sodat Koestertjie, lamgeslaan soos sy daar staan, tot haar verbasing sien dat die slang sy bolyf laat sak totdat hy plat op die grond in al sy kronkelinge voor die kind le. ’n Vuil handjie word uitgestrek en net as dit aan die skubberige rug wil vat, pluk die reptiel homself weer orent en word die bak dreigend platgemaak. Dit is tog te mooi. Die laggie dawer deur die lug en dan word daar maar weer gesing. Weer bedaar die slang.” Wadda van die woestyn verskyn oorspronklik in 1950. In die roman word ’n wit driejarige seuntjie deur Boesmans, Boogspan en sy vrou, Koestertjie, aangeneem nadat die skip waarop hy, sy tweelingboetie en hulle ouers reis byna op die rotse loop. Wadda (’n verdraaiing van sy doopnaam “Waldo”) toon ’n besondere aanvoeling vir en beheer oor die plante- en dierelewe van die Namib-woestyn. Wanneer hy ouer word, word hy ’n leier en legende onder die inheemse bevolking. Die verhaal neem ’n onverwagse wending wanneer Wadda ’n soekgeselskap, op soek na legendariese skatte, teekom en uitvind waar hy werklik vandaan kom.
