Product description

Herman Charles Bosman
Craig MacKenzie, ed.
Human & Rousseau, Cape Town, 2006.
Soft-bound; 150 x 220 mm; 424 pages. Monochrome illustrations throughout the text.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound and tight. The spine is uncreased, and there is only a slight bump to the bottom right corner of the front cover.
Herman Charles Bosman (1905 – 1951) is widely regarded as South Africa's greatest short-story writer. He studied the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain and developed a style emphasizing the use of satire. His English language works utilize primarily Afrikaner characters, and highlight the many contradictions in Afrikaner society during the first half of the twentieth century. The poet Roy Campbell called him "the only literary genius that South Africa has produced". This book presents the entire sequence of Bosman’s famous Oom Schalk Lourens stories, edited from authoritative sources and accompanied by original illustrations.
