The 21 stories of Mafeking Road are probably the most well known and best beloved of all the writings of Herman Charles Bosman.

It is in this collection that Bosman's magical story-telling qualities emerge. With a whimsical, light and entertaining touch he weaves Oom Schalk Lourens's reminiscences of the Great Marico around the themes of love, hate, betrayal and death.

Truly, as Roy Campbell said, "These are the best short stories that ever came out of South Africa".

Mafeking Road is part of a series of eight Herman Charles Bosman titles reissued in a uniform edition by Human & Rousseau. The other titles are Unto Dust, Jurie Steyn's Post Office, A Bekkersdal Marathon, A Cask of Jerepigo, Jacaranda in the Night, Willemsdorp and Cold Stone Jug.

In great condition.
