Die Vrou van die Klipsee (Afrikaans, Paperback): Meg Vandermerwe Die Vrou van die Klipsee (Afrikaans, Paperback)

Die vrou van die klippesee vertel hoe die lewe vir Hendrik tot nou toe gerol het soos ’n stormsee. Hy is ’n visserman van ’n klein dorpie aan die Weskus wat jou aan Paternoster laat dink en in sy lewe het hy reeds sy broer aan die dood afgestaan. Maar dit is die verdwyning van sy vrou wat hom bitter maak en na die papsak wyn laat reik. Só staan hy dronk en droewig in die koue see, reg om homself te verdrink terwyl sy hond op die strand vir hom wag wanneer die roman begin. Hendrik se lewe begin handomkeer verander wanneer hy ’n gewonde gedierte, miskien iets soos ’n meermin, huis toe bring. Die vrou van die klippesee wys hoe goed fiksie sosiale en politieke kwessies kan ondersoek wanneer die skrywer lig werp op die lewe van ’n karakter wat aanvanklik niksseggend en nietig blyk te wees.

The Woman Of The Stone Sea (Paperback): Meg Vandermerwe The Woman Of The Stone Sea (Paperback)
Meg Vandermerwe
R265 R189 Discovery Miles 1 890 Save R76 (29%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

The woman Hendrik finds injured on a deserted beach is unlike anything this West Coast fisherman has ever pulled from the ocean. Where her legs should be, there’s a fishtail. Could this be one of the water maidens his wife Rebekkah spoke about before she walked into the sea, never to be seen again? Or is she the fish woman that the old isiXhosa people in the Transkei call ‘mamlambo’?

As the strange being takes up residence in Hendrik’s home, nothing is as it seems.

Whether he’s dealing with a figment of his grief, or a puzzle that will solve Rebekkah’s disappearance, Hendrik soon realises that the line between the so-called magical and the real is very fine.

Ghost. Ape. Living dead. Young and albino, Chipo has been called many things, but to her mother - Zimbabwe's most loyal Manchester United supporter - she had always been a gift. On the eve of the World Cup, Chipo and her brother flee to Cape Town, hoping for a better life and to share in the excitement of the greatest sporting event ever to take place in Africa. But the Mother City's infamous Long Street is a dangerous place for an illegal immigrant and an albino. Soon Chipo is caught up in a get-rich-quick scheme organised by her brother and the terrifying Dr Ongani. Exploiting gamblers' superstitions about albinism, they plan to make money and get out of the city before rumours of looming xenophobic attacks become a reality. But their scheming has devastating consequences. Set in the underbelly of a pulsating Cape Town, Meg Vandermerwe's Zebra Crossing is an arresting debut and a bold, lyrical imagining of what it's like to live in another person's skin.

This place I call home (Paperback): Meg Vandermerwe This place I call home (Paperback)

R526 Discovery Miles 5 260 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Ten stories. Ten voices. Ten diverse perspectives of what home has meant to South Africans during our country's challenging history. In this collection we are drawn into the lives of others. From an old widower who seems content on the outside but feels that his world is unravelling in the new South Africa, to an immigrant who has fled racial persecution in 1930s Europe and now finds himself on a barren sheep farm in the Karoo, to a Polokwane teacher confronted with the moral dilemma of xenophobic sentiments in her township, This Place I Call Home, leaves the reader deeply aware of local realities. Even though these powerful stories are often characterised by hardship and personal loss, one cannot help but emerge inspired by the tenacity of the human spirit and the resilience of South Africa's people.
