About this book

Op reis met 'n hond | Short Stories & Fiction Anthologies

Anna Kemp

An intriguing and authoritative new narrator voice. The elegiac and understated narratives are linked through recurring motives (loss, the past, the dog, violence, guilt, art) and the same narrator’s voice. The dog as main motif (the inescapability of the past – dogging our footsteps forever?) is woven through the book. These are finely observed stories of loss and alienation, but not without irony and even humour (the macabre humour in the story of a visit to a farm) and the sense of healing that beauty and art and memories also bring.
