Quick overview Herman Charles Bosman

R 85.00

This revised edition of Bosman’s classic sketches and essays retains the core of the original 1957 collection, augmented with several items freshly come to light. Bosman was then billed as a laughter-raiser of a thoroughly individual cast who would not be shamed by comparison with the finest humorists in the English language, and the book was described as beautiful and delicious. So it has proved, through numerous reprintings since then. The enduringly funny A Cask of Jerepigo has become a South African favourite, with pieces like A Visit to Shanty Town, Johannesburg Riots, Street Processions and Jam Session frequently reprinted and performed. The satirical sharpness and unique comic reporting of South Africa’s jaunty man about town are still unmatched. The running order here follows the dates of first publication so that readers may relish Bosman’s themes and ideas as he allowed them to unfold. Each piece is edited anew from an original source and complete. With a new introduction and notes on the texts.
