Etienne Van Heerden

— welcome to etiennevanheerden.co.za —

“As one cannot talk about Israel without having read Amos Oz,
or India without Salman Rushdie,
or South America without
Marquez or Llosa, so you will have to read Van Heerden if you want
to know anything about South Africa. It is fiction at its best.”

— Herman de Coninck, NRC Handelsblad, Amsterdam, Netherlands

“Van Heerden's words blast the reader's mind through a clear, blue African sky.”

The Telegraph, London
