Brug Van Die Esels

Quick Overview

Vir Araminta Rossouw het diamante ´n magiese aantrekkingskrag: nie vasgeklamp in ringe of in koningskrone en septers nie, maar ongeslyp en vry in die palm van haar hand, in die holtes van haar African violet se blare, of op haar vensterbank waar hulle met die berg kan gesels. Diamante is klein klippies, heilig, waarin oerlig gebêre is. En hulle straal iets uit: as sy hulle vashou, weet sy of hulle gelukkig is of nie.

Vir Araminta Rossouw het diamante ´n magiese aantrekkingskrag: nie vasgeklamp in ringe of in koningskrone en septers nie, maar ongeslyp en vry in die palm van haar hand, in die holtes van haar African violet se blare, of op haar vensterbank waar hulle met die berg kan gesels. Diamante is klein klippies, heilig, waarin oerlig gebêre is. En hulle straal iets uit: as sy hulle vashou, weet sy of hulle gelukkig is of nie.

Om mense uit ´n geldelike verknorsing te help, gaan verkoop sy vir hulle diamante in ´n krotterige Kaapse buurt, en daarmee gaan ´n kortpad na vryheid vir haar oop. Sy wat as wit kind van Afrika verwerp voel, en gedoem tot ´n ewige struggle; wat wil padgee na ´n land waar dit moontlik is om gewoon te leef sonder skuldgevoel, en by geluk uit te kom.

Dit was toe sy op universiteit in die geskiedenis van die Afrikanervolk gaan delf het om haarself te probeer vind dat sy op ´n barsie afgekom het wat deur alles loop en waarvan iemand haar ooit gesê het nie. ´n Bars wat al groter word, en wat almal en alles aantas.

Nou sien sy geen keuse nie: sy moet self op dié bars langs loop. Want as eiendomsagent sal sy nog baie kommissie moet verdien om vlerke te kan hê vir wegvlieg, maar diamante bied ´n vinnige ontsnaproete. Gevaarlik, maar onweerstaanbaar.

Só begin ´n spel met die fassinerende blink klippies wat haar in ´n krisis laat beland wat sy met haar noukeurige berekenings nie kan voorsien nie. En wanneer alles verlore lyk, kom Koos Malharbe as prokureur in haar lewe. Hy wat genoeg gesien het om te weet dat dit ´n mens nie baat om ´n brug bo-oor die waarheid te probeer bou nie.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
