Triomf

Triomf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Triomf by Marlene van Niekerk Book Summary:

As lyrical and acutely observed as Nadine Gordimer's The House Gun and as penetrating as J.M. Coetzee's Disgrace, Triomf's microcosmic view of South Africa on the brink of disintegration has been acclaimed as one of the best novels ever written in Afrikaans.  This is the story of the four inhabitants of 127 Martha Street in the poor white suburb of Triomf. Living on the ruins of old Sophiatown, the freehold township razed to the ground as a so-called 'black spot', they await with trepidation their country's first democratic elections. It is a date that coincides fatefully with the fortieth birthday of Lambert, the oversexed misfit son of the house. There is also Treppie, master of misrule and family metaphysician; Pop, the angel of peace teetering on the brink of the grave; and Mol, the materfamilias in her eternal housecoat. Pestered on a daily basis by nosy neighbors, National Party canvassers and Jehovah's Witnesses, defenseless against the big city towering over them like a vengeful dinosaur, they often resort to quoting to each other the only consolation that they know; we still have each other and a roof over our heads. Triomf relentlessly probes Afrikaner history and politics, revealing the bizarre and tragic effect that apartheid had on exactly the white underclass who were most supposed to benefit. It is also a seriously funny investigation of the human endeavor to make sense of life even under the most abject of circumstances.

Triomf (Afrikaans Edition) by Marlene van Niekerk Book Summary:

Nomaprys vir publikasies in Afrika (1995), CNA-prys (1995), M-Net-prys (1995). Triomf is 'n boek vir die groot lag én die groot huil. Een wat jou pak, jou laat gru, jou betower. 'n Storie wat jou laat met dié verwondering: dat soveel grasie kan kom uit so 'n geneuk.“‘Die inwoners van Martha Straat 127 is ’n kombinasie van dié wat ek elke dag op straat sien. Dié mense en armoede is oral in ons groot stede. Jy hoef net op ’n Saterdag by ’n drankwinkel in ’n minder gegoede buurt in te stap om mense te sien wat sukkel en swaarkry.’“Die boodskap wat sy in haar boek wil oordra, is dat ryk en arm mense dieselfde emosies ervaar en dat hul worsteling daarmee ewe intens is. ‘’n Mens se hart bly dieselfde, ongeag sy omstandighede. Selfs die versukkeldes kan liefhê, sensueel wees, ontroer en vergewe, eienskappe wat die hoër middelklasse dikwels vir hulself toe-eien.’
