Die Geschichte einer Stadt – und eines Mordes. Nicolaas Storm erzählt eine große Geschichte – darüber, wie er gemeinsam mit seinem Vater einen Platz zum Leben sucht. Ein Fieber hat die Welt verändert: Gangs ziehen umher, es gibt keinen Strom mehr, wilde Tiere bedrohen die Dörfer. Wie die ersten Siedler müssen die Menschen alles neu lernen. Den vielen Widrigkeiten zum Trotz glaubt Nico an einen Neuanfang, und er verliebt sich in Sofia, das wildeste Mädchen, dem er jemals begegnet ist. Dann aber passiert ein Mord, der alles verändert. Ein spannendes Epos mit einem wunderbaren Helden – ein Roman über das, was Menschen und menschliches Zusammensein ausmacht. Vom besten Spannungsautor Südafrikas. »Großartig.« Stephen King

The series builds an extensive collection of high quality descriptions of languages around the world. Each volume offers a comprehensive grammatical description of a single language together with fully analyzed sample texts and, if appropriate, a word list and other relevant information which is available on the language in question. There are no restrictions as to language family or area, and although special attention is paid to hitherto undescribed languages, new and valuable treatments of better known languages are also included. No theoretical model is imposed on the authors; the only criterion is a high standard of scientific quality.

Present Imperfect asks how South African writers have responded to the end of apartheid, to the hopes that attended the birth of the 'new' nation in 1994, and to the inevitable disappointments that have followed. The first full-length study of affect in South Africa's literature, it understands 'disappointment' both as a description of bad feeling and as naming a missed appointment with all that was promised by the anti-colonial and anti-apartheid Struggle (a dis-appointment). Attending to contemporary writers' treatment of temporality, genre, and form, it considers a range of negative feelings that are also experiences of temporal disjuncture-including stasis, impasse, boredom, disaffection, and nostalgia. Present Imperfect offers close readings of work by a range of writers - some known to international Anglophone readers including J.M. Coetzee, Nadine Gordimer, Ivan Vladislavic, and Zoë Wicomb, some slightly less well-known including Afrikaans-language novelists Marlene van Niekerk and Ingrid Winterbach, and others from a new generation including Songeziwe Mahlangu and Masande Ntshanga. It addresses key questions in South African studies about the evolving character of the historical period in which the country now finds itself. It is also alert to wider critical and theoretical conversations, looking outward to make a case for the place of South African writing in global conversations, and mobilizing readings of writing marked in various ways as 'South African' in order to complicate the contours of World Literature as category, discipline, and pedagogy. It is thus also a book about the discontents of neoliberalism, the political energies of reading, and the fates of literature in our troubled present.
