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 re-envisions 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.

Also available in French from Editions du Seuil

About the Book

“A dark and terrifying novel presenting a mythical account of the development of evil through the history of Southern Africa.”- Seattle Times

Powerfully and precisely written … Horseman is probably best read as a sort of South African Nineteen Eighty-Four: an ostensible fiction that deals with contemporary reality in mythic terms’ – New Statesman and Society
