This volume contains all the Voorkamerstories
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 hypocondriacs.
