'A library to flee' by Etienne Van Heerden

It was first published in Afrikaans by Tafelberg under the title, DIE BIBLIOTEEK AAN DIE EINDE VAN DIE WÊRELD.

I am talking about Etienne van Heerden’s sensational page-turner that has now been translated into English by Henrietta Rose-Innes as, A LIBRARY TO FLEE.

This historical fiction book documents the turbulent time in which we live, where issues such as privacy and identity, fake news and fact, and race and ethnicity inflame passions.

To help us unpack this read further, let’s now rope in Etienne van Heerden, and he joins us now on Zoom from Cape Town.
