Wat is die verskil tussen n vrou se decolletage en haar bo-bors Wat word van Pitte wat heeldag face-lifts kry, en wie is die Beyeres van die dorp wat begin met R, naby die plek wat begin met W,langs die rivier wat begin met B En dan is daar die beeldskone Okkert, met twee oe wat vir jou gekyk het dat jy om verskoning wou vra vir gedagtes wat jy eers later gaan kry, n wasbleek vel, gladder as nat seep, en pienk lippe wat n lading in jou binneste laat opbou het, jy voel jy wil n ponie doodspoeg…Nataniel op sy allerbeste. Spitsvondig en baie snaaks, en tog ook so wys. Hy skryf op een plek: As mense na jou staar of jou nie aanvaar nie, is dit heeltemal in die haak. Solank hulle vir jou hande klap.Die bundel bevat 27 stories in Afrikaans en 14 in Engels.

How to tell a shattered story By slowly becoming everybody. No. By slowly becoming everything.

In a city graveyard, a resident unrolls a threadbare Persian carpet between two graves.
On a concrete sidewalk, a baby appears quite suddenly, a little after midnight, in a crib of litter.
In a snowy valley, a father writes to his five-year-old daughter about the number of people that attended her funeral.
And in the Jannat Guest House, two people who’ve known each other all their lives sleep with their arms wrapped around one another as though they have only just met.

Here is a cast of unforgettable characters caught up in the tide of history. Told with a whisper, with a shout, with tears and with laughter, it is a love story and a provocation. Its heroes, present and departed, human and animal, have been broken by the world we live in and then mended by love – and for this reason, they will never surrender.
