In 1920 skilder Paul Klee die olieverf-skildery, Angelus Novus. In 1940 vertolk Walter Benjamin in sy geskrif, ber den Begriff der Geschichte, dat dt is hoe die engel van die geskiedenis moet lyk: met oopgesperde vlerke, op die punt om weg te vlieg, kyk hy om. Hy sien ‘n katastrofiese verlede, wil terug, die wrakstukke wat hy daar sien opruim, maar ‘n storm uit die paradys het hom aan die vlerke beet, waai hom genadeloos die toekoms in.In die eerste gedeelte van Tweespoor word ‘n spesifieke suider-afrikaanse verlede ontgin, en in die tweede ‘n stormagtige eietydse werklikheid. Benewens dié twee spore waarop die bundel kortprosa loop, veroorsaak die geskiedenis wat ingesement in die psiges van karakters lê, en die opsies wat die hede bied, ‘n turbulensie wat mense in twee rye spore laat loop. Besonder elegant is die delikate manier waarop die skrywer suggestie hanteer. Dit is die vermoë om ’n verwikkelde, geloofwaardige teks te produseer wat tegelykertyd (’n karakter se geestelike herstel of weerstandige berusting), nie net bevestig nie, maar ook ondermyn, wat hierdie verhale onderskei, skryf Louis Esterhuysen oor Tweespoor.OOR DIE OUTEURHelena Gunter het op ’n plaas naby die mond van die Breërivier grootgeword en skoolgegaan in Heidelberg. Ná haar studies was sy jare lank ’n onderwyser in die Strand, Bellville en Stellenbosch. Haar debuutbundel Op ’n plaas in Afrika is in 2008 met die Eugène Marais-prys bekroon en beskryf as ’n draaipunt in die Afrikaanse kortverhaal.

Jojo Richter van Siende blind, Raaiselspieël, Ewebeeld en Paaiboelie is terug.Sy bars van nuuskierigheid oor die groep vroue in die Akkedisberge wat wag vir moederskip van die Pleiade-sterrestelsel. Sy weier egter om weer saam met Irene en Vlak te werk, tot boogskutter op rolskaatse bekende regter vermoor en die vermoede ontstaan dat dit moontlik verband kan hou met die UFO-groep.Toe sy weer sien, konkel sy saam met Irene agter Valk se rug om die raaisel te probeer oplos. Iets wat haar verhouding met Joachim tot die uiterste beproef.Om alles moeiliker te maak, moet Ayla, die grafoloog, ook haar toetrede maak.Vir Ayla is haar verlede verleentheid. Nes haar liggaamsbou. Maak nie saak wat sy doen nie, die stigma van haar ma se bewering dat sy vlieënde piering gesien het bly net so aan haar kleef soos die groot heupe wat sy by haar ouma oorgeërf het. Sy het egter haar lewe so ingerig dat sy uit die oog kan bly – totdat sy as grafoloog handskrif moet ontleed en besef haar suster verkeer in wesenlike gevaar. Jojo Richter sal haar kan help om Nimue op te spoor, maar Jojo werk reeds vir Irene en dis Irene se suster wat vir Nimue gevaar inhou. Storm Strachan met sy liederlike handskrif wat integriteit, maar ook misleiding verklap, is nou weer ander tameletjie.
