"A dark and terrifying novel presenting a mythical account of the development of evil through the history of Southern Africa."--Seattle Times. This ferocious new novel by one of South Africa's visionary writers is a post-colonial reimagining of the Book of Revelation--an unholy epic that reenvisions the catastrophic violence of European "civilization" as a hooded rider who spreads slaughter across the African continent--a work that is as unnerving as it is intellectually provocative.
"Horseman" is the story of a young man (simply called 'the youth') who carries a gun, hides in an unnamed European forest, and travels with a man named Madach. Told in a parable-like manner, "Horseman" includes b&w illustrations.
