Klassiek reeks: Karolina Ferreira | General Fiction

Lettie Viljoen

M-Net Prize (1994)
Ou Mutual Literary Award (1994)

Karolina Ferreira goes to the town Voorspoed in the Free State to research moths. On her way there she picks up a hitch-hiker, and a fortune teller reads her palm.

Initially Karolina stays in the local hotel. She plays snooker, and meets a variety of people, such as Pol, the enigmatic attorney, the farmer Tonnie de Melck, lieutenant Kieliemann and other members of the local police. She is also confronted with violence in the black township.

Despite a promise to herself, she does fall in love – just like the couple she once noticed on a bench in a grave yard. Love and violence, the public and the very private: all these issues are intervowen in truly magical fashion in Lettie Viljoen’s Karolina Ferreira.

Available in English as The Elusive Moth.
