HERTZOG PRIZE FOR PROSE – Buys: 'n grensroman (2016)


Coenraad de Buys was the most dangerous man around in the Cape of the late seventeen hundreds.

He was a giant, a legend, a polygamist, a swindler and a big talker, the bane of government; father to chieftains and a whole Buysvolk of his own. He restlessly walked the uneasy landscape of southern Africa like the wild dogs who were always at his heels, always in his head – especially the earless dog who put Buys on his renegade path.

He was born in the Langkloof. He died on the banks of the Limpopo. But Buys is not dead.
