Oor hierdie boek:

Konstant Wasserman se pad loop dood. Sy mense met hul verstarde lewens en hul aansprake dryf hom tot raserny, dryf hom di eland uit: Australië toe. In Sydney leer hy kook in 'n restaurant en vind hy vrye geeste wat hom verstaan. Die liefde, in 'n smeulende gedaante, terg sy sinne. Hy is vry. Tot die vreemde blou merke op sy bene begin uitslaan en hy begin siek word.

Die toetse is positief, en hy moet klaarmaak, vrede maak. In 'n beheerste proses van heroïse afmetings konfronteer Konstant, en lê hy af: elke vriendskap en verwantskap, sy sinnelike liefde vir die lewe, en in 'n geïnspireerde deurgang, uiteindelik die lewe self.

Oorspronklik gepubliseer in Afrikaans: Ek stamel, ek sterwe.
