Big Book Chain Chat #84: JM Coetzee in Texas
Rob Gaylard - 2011-11-04
Untitled Document JM Coetzee in Texas Isn’t it rather dismaying to learn that our (are we right to think of him as “our”?) foremost writer has sold his literary papers to the University of Texas in Austin? Of course Coetzee is free to choose what to do with his papers, and of course he belongs to the world, not just to South Africa, and yes, he did receive a doctorate from the University of Texas in 1965 – so this is not a criticism, just an expression of regret. Whatever...

My Mercedes is Bigger than Yours: An exploration of postcolonial society
Annie Gagiano - 2011-11-04
Untitled Document My Mercedes is Bigger than Yours Author:Nkem Nwankwo Published in the Heinemann African Writers Series in 1975, Nkem Nwankwo’s novel succeeded his highly popular first (comic) novel, Dando (1964). But despite what this “ancestry” might suggest, along with the amusingly boastful but not entirely appropriate title and the description of the text in the back cover blurb as “satirical”, My Mercedes Is Bigger than Yours is actually a morally cautionary...

Ek kan hierdie resensie begin met pragtige vergelykings tussen die tonnelvisie of “amper” blindheid van die hoofkarakter, Hans Meintjies, en hoe die verhaal hom afspeel, maar dit sal afbreuk doen aan die eenvoudige genot wat hierdie debuutroman van Zain Eckelton die leser verskaf. Die boek is pure plesier en een van die mooiste liefdesverhale,...

Big Book Chain Chat #83: Where does poetry begin?
Kyle Allen - 2011-10-26
Where does poetry begin? Poetry begins in silence and transcends ourselves. A poem is both a message and a destination. A poem is both a process and an entirety. We are channels and also embodiers of the poem. Where does the poem end and another existence begin? And yet the poem is separate from us. As soon as we write or speak it takes on new life, like a child. Should there be a message in poetry? Poetry is the message. Poetry is our consciousness extended and revealed. It is a revelation of...

Rugbyboeke 2011 – en een oor krieket
JB Roux - 2011-10-20
In ’n land waar die enigste “celebrities” sporthelde en korrupte politici is, is dit nie vreemd dat daar voor die aanvang van die Wêreldbekertoernooi soveel rugbyboeke verskyn het nie. Maar hoeveel van hierdie boeke gaan gelees word noudat ’n moedswillige skeidsregter die Springbokke die Wêreldbeker ontneem het? Want dis nou so dat Suid-Afrikaners ons nasionale rugbyspan tot die dood toe ondersteun … solank Die Span net nie gaan staan en verloor nie. Vir...

Judy Croome - 2011-10-13
My name is Judy. I am a bookaholic. I’ll buy a book I don’t need (and will probably never read) because I love the smell, the feel, the sight of it. I was the kind of person who threw out clothes to make cupboard space to store more books. Until, that is, I discovered a new addiction: e-books. At first, I resisted their seductive call. Oh yes, I put up a good fight. I want a book to feel like a book, I said. A real book is printed on paper, I insisted. A book, I lamented, inhaling...
