About this book

Die troebel tyd (ePub) | Fiction

Ingrid Winterbach

When zoologist Magrieta Prinsloo is put on the wrong antidepressant, her head comes unstuck. She clashes vehemently with her colleagues, insults the head of her department, and impulsively resigns from her job. 
Magrieta accepts a position at the Western Cape branch of the Office for Continuing Education, with the inscrutable Markus Potsdam as her boss. Regular business trips take her to the Eastern Cape and other destinations. The range of colleagues, people in wheelchairs and whales that she encounters during these visits sets her life on a new tangent. When Potsdam disappears one morning, matters become even more complicated.   
In this new novel, Winterbach’s extraordinary gift as a novelist, and uncanny understanding of the human psyche, are again as evident as ever.    
Die troebel tyd was winner of NB’s Groot Afrikaanse Romanwedstryd in 2018.
