Klassiek reeks: Mahala | General Fiction

Chris Barnard


Hertzog Prize for prose (1973)
WA Hofmeyr Prize (1974)

Deep in the African bush Delport lives alone, and in fear. Nine long years he has endured nights of mosquitoes and mysterious drumming, days of burning sun. Waiting for his past to catch up with him. A past that would come in the shape of Ritter, and Ritter would be carrying a gun. Then someone does arrive, but her name is Malia Domingo. Something about her reminds Delport of his nemesis, or has his paranoia got the better of him? Mahala is a classical psychological thriller, set against the harsh reality of Africa.
