Fleur de Villiers is nie ’n kenner van rugby nie. Wanneer haar ou pel Maurice Kumalo haar vra om ’n biografie oor die Springbok-rugbykaptein Katstert Nel te skryf, is sy om die minste te sê teësinnig. Haar voorliefdes in die lewe behels eerder fynere dinge, soos ondersoekende joernalistiek, goeie kos en wyn. Wat op aarde weet sy van rugby, so op die vooraand van die Wêreld ...more

Heerlike boek wat homself nie te ernstig opneem nie. Die een metafisiese dilemma word nie toegelaat om dit te verander nie. Wonderlike taalgebruik veral aan die begin; dikwels spottend maar soms ernstiger maar ewe raak bv [was dit?] ,,Land van verspeelde vryheid'' ...more

Just in time for the World Cup, Kerneels Breytenback brings us a satire set in the near future where the national sport, rugby, and religion becomes inseparable.

It's 2025 and South Africa stands on the verge of the World Cup (yes, again!) When freelance journalist, Fleur de Villiers, accepts the offer to write a biography of the Springbok captain, she unearths an unexpected secret or two.

At times Breytenbach's spot-on depiction of the rugby culture will make you snort in your coffee (or Castle
