Read an Excerpt

Bosman’s Voorkamer stories first appeared in The Forum in 1950-1951 as a weekly column and were considered by his colleagues as his best work. This volume contains all the Voorkamer stories in the order in which they originally appeared, unabridged and uncensored. In these stories, the local farmers gather in Jurie Steyn’s voorkamer, which doubles as the Drogevlei post office, to share the news of the day, comment on world events and tell stories about pretty girls, ghosts and hypochondriacs.The Complete Voorkamer Stories is now complemented by a "Bushveld Portfolio" by David Goldblatt: 12 previously unpublished photographs taken in the Marico area. The photographs will be interspersed with the text, printed on the half title pages introducing each section of the Voorkamer Stories.
