The Love Song of André P. Brink

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

THE LOVE SONG OF ANDR P BRINK is the first biography of this major South African novelist who, during his lifetime, was published in over 30 languages and ranked with the likes of Gabriel Garc a M rquez, Peter Carey and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

Leon de Kock's eagerly awaited account of Brink's life is richly informed by a previously unavailable literary treasure: the dissident Afrikaner's hoard of journal-writing, a veritable chronicle that was 54 years in the making.

In this massive new biographical source - running to a million words - Brink does not spare himself, or anyone else for that matter, as he narrates the ups and downs of his five marriages and his compulsive affairs with a great number of women. These are precisely the topics that the rebel in both politics and sex skated over in his memoir, A Fork in the Road.

De Kock's biographical study of the author who came close to winning the Nobel Prize for Literature not only synthesises the journals but also subjects them to searching critical analysis.

In addition, the biographer measures the journals against additional sources, scholarly and otherwise, among them the testimonies of Brink's friends, family, wives and lovers.

The Love Song of Andr P Brink subjects Brink's literary legacy to a bracing academic reevaluation, making this major new biography a crucial addition to scholarship on Brink.
