Book Title: Triomf

Author: Marlene van Niekerk

Book Description:

I chose the book because it is accessible to the general reader and shows one a different side to the issues facing South Africa. The novel is about a dysfunctional Afrikaner family as Apartheid in South Africa came to an end. On the one hand it is very funny but has a dark side portraying aspects of Afrikanerdom in South Africa, and its uncertain future under black rule.
