    Review originally published at Nudge.First published in Afrikaans in 2006, Trencherman blends a retelling of Joseph Conrad s Heart of Darkness with a dystopian vision of near future South Africa.Our protagonist, Martin Louw, is nicknamed Marlouw a nod to the narrator of Conrad s novel He and his sister Heleen now live comfortable lives as expats in Australia, a way of life that s upended when Heleen insists Marlouw return to the family s South African farm, Ouplaas, to find and bring home her son Koert It is a mission he immediately sees as inevitable, despite his reluctance to return to his ancestral country The story that follows is both an apocalyptic fever dream and a psychological journey.Marlouw s trip home leads him to discover a broken and ravaged country in which poverty is endemic, every commodity is scarce, and AIDS is rife he is told at one point that four out of every five people are infected Ouplaas now nominally belongs to the black families who once provided its staff, but is effectively ruled by the ominous, unseen Koert, who, it becomes clear, is the trencherman of the title The term refers to someone with a large appetite, but also to a parasitic creature Marlouw has a club foot...

    It s a powerful book, a dystopic vision of the future of South Africa.J.M Coetzee This post apocalyptic successor to Heart of Darkness excavates the traumas of a nation Trencherman can be read as one of the foundational texts of post 1994 South African speculative fiction.Patrick Flanery, The Guardian The South Africa in Trencherman is a dystopia to rival JM Coetzee s vision of the country in Disgrace Eben Venter is a consummate stylist who skillfully conjures a gathering sense of menace.Gillian Slovo, FT Eben Venter is one of the notable voices in white South African writing post Apartheid.Aidan Hartley, Spectator Fascinating and captivating This is a deeply unsettling and thought provoking portrayal of an imagined future and a worthy modern successor to Conrad s novel. Nudge Books Macabrely effective Trencherman sets out to warn us about the putative failure of democracy in South Africa, but ends up as a go...

    Hegel het Afrika die donker kontinent genoem en later het die nou oorlede Johannes Kerkorrel gesing hoe Suid Afrika n Donker Land is In ons huidige samelewing ervaar ons geweldige maatskaplikke rasprobleme As Afrikaners is ons geneig om eenvoudig d kwessie te ignoreer en soos Marlouw, die hoofkarakter, van enige kritici te vlug Hy en sy familie, die Louw s, het na Australi verhuis juis om die donker kontinent te ontsnap.Die storie speel af op n ongespesifiseerde tyd in die toekoms waar die virus die hele land vernietig het, dit wil s VIGS in die jare wanneer Venter die boek geskryf het Marlo tjie se nefie is n jong en fris man wat skielik na Suid Afrika vir onduidelikke redes vertrek later soebat sy ma by Marlo tjie om haar kind uit daai donnerse land te gaan haal Skielik is Marlo tjie ontheem en keer terug na sy geboorteland waar hy en sy familie vir 13 generasies lank in die Noordkaap geboer het meestal skape Die roman tree in gesprek met The Heart of Darkness van Joseph Conrad en Venter erken aan die einde van die boek dat hy versigtig navorsing ingestel het deur om Chinau Achebe se kritiek daaromtrent te lees Achebe voer aan dat The Heart of Darkness n rassistiese boek en uitbeelding is, en dat die Weste nog ltyd Afrika nodig gehad het en begeer het as maatstaf om homself teen te vergelyk Venter ontsnap nie hierdie neiging nie, man sukkel om te verstaan hoekom die swart mense van Suid Afrika to...

    Eben Venter verras my altyd met sy pragtige prosa en besondere, somtyds skokende stories Die storie van vernielde Suid Afrika met geen krag or orde nie hou jou op jou tone met die blaai van elke bladsy.
