About this book

Maal (ePub) | Short Stories & Fiction Anthologies

Nicole Jaekel Strauss


Eugène Marais Prize (2011)
University of Johannesburg Prize for Best Creative Debut in Afrikaans (2011)

Unusual and exciting short stories in which characters have to deal with “displacement”, not truly fitting into their environment.

The Afrikaans word “maal” refers to a “meal or food”, but at the same time it has the denotation of “grinding” or being “hurled around”. The title is particularly significant in that food, or the absence thereof, is a theme that often occurs in these stories.

A powerful debut.
