Once again the Dwarsberg farmers gather in Jurie Steyn's voorkamer to discuss some of the salient historical details relating to an item of local gossip. But whether the topic is go-slow strikes or the end of the world, Van Tonder, Welman, Naude and the others would far rather discuss it than plough their fields."

About the author (2005)

Bosman (1905-1951) is widely considered the greatest short story writer of South Africa, known for infusing the cadence of Afrikaans speech into his English language writing. Drawing upon his experiences living in a North West Province farming town district of Groot Marico, Bosman wrote the first stories of Mafeking Road during a brief imprisonment for killing his stepbrother.
