Black Twitter, Blitz and a Boerie as Long as Your Leg (and other South African National Treasures),
by Hagen Engler
Black Twitter, Blitz and a Boerie as Long as Your
Leg is a celebration of South Africa's iconic people, places, situations, songs, character traits and consumer products. As a hilarious compendium of iconic South Africanness, it is a light-hearted, humorous read of multiple entries. Optimistic, topical and tongue-in-cheek, it draws on the great many things that South Africans have in common and will give us all a moment to agree on something for a change.
The book celebrates the subtle aspects of South African life that we all experience but don't always notice. Engler looks at icons of our shared South Africanness that induces an excited exclamation from the reader of,“Yoh! That's so true!” Look out for stories on a fake pair of Ray-Bans from the robots, your skaftien of last night's stew, and Zodwa Wabantu's vosho.
Engler has co-written, ghost-written and edited more than 12 books.
