This is Michiel Heyns’s seventh novel, a return to the comic mode previously displayed in The Reluctant Passenger – an approach very different from his acclaimed Lost Ground. While the subject matter might be less significant, there is no doubting Heyns’s masterful control of the variations in tone – always entertaining, steadily ironic, light-heartedly satirical, and very amusing. There is a lightness of touch that allows you to read at a brisk pace (except when you have to stop reading to catch your breath from laughing out loud).
- A Sportful Malice by Michiel Heyns
