The Book of War

"A rare feast - a book whose subject is people slowly making their way through the trudge and mud of their history, but which is also a real page turner. [It] makes visible in a way I have not see before, the Eastern Cape frontier wars."
William Kentridge.

"...  the true drama takes place below the surface"
JM Coetzee on The Story.

The Book of War was the creative component in an MA in Creative Writing supervised by Marlene van Niekerk and Willem Anker in the department of Afrikaans and Nederlands at Stellenbosch university. It was edited by Pete van der Woude.
