Fanie Fourie's Lobola
Fanie Fourie is a true blue boere seun with an unrepentantly macho approach to love and life in general. But his world view undergoes an abrupt reinvention when he is 'bitten by the louse and bedbug of love' and falls head-over-heels for Dimakatjo Machabaphala, a beautiful black nurse. In pursuit of true love, these lovers must steer a path through the challenging intricacies of inter-cultural negotiation and leap the hurdles of racial bigotry, tenacious former lovers, and the like, finally to emerge triumphant as traditionally united man and wife. This delightful novel is filled with naughty humor and ironic reversals of stereotype. With a deft and humorous pen, the author evokes the colliding worlds of traditional and contemporary culture in a South Africa still struggling to renegotiate roles and relationships and shake off the complexes and prejudices of the past.
