"Cornelius Molapo - urban dandy, poet, dancer, fiery but fickle political orator - is not the first person you'd choose to lead the revolution. And no one is more surprised than Corny when he's approached by the National Liberation Movement and ordered to lead a peasant uprising in remote Tabanyane - right now, Little does Cornelius suspect that he is a pawn in a much bigger political game: the NLM has its own reasons for deploying this reluctant revolutionary." "His sudden disappearance mystifies friends, loved ones, and ultimately the international community - it's assumed that he's been abducted by the police, or worse. Expatriate Anthony Ferguson is dispatched to South Africa by a human rights organisation to investigate. But the emotions stirred up by his return, and the reunion with his decadent, bewitching sister Hazel, distract Anthony from his quest for the seemingly harmless Cornelius. And by the time the two cross paths, Cornelius Molapo is harmless no more ..." "Nkosi takes us to mansions and mountain hideouts, where we meet a dazzling variety of characters; serene Princess Madi of the Tabanyane royal house, Kristina the small-town temptress and Joe Bulane, the sinister Central Committee man."--BOOK JACKET.

Männlichkeitsmythos: Südafrika in den Sechzigerjahren des letzten Jahrhunderts, der Held des Romans Dumisan wächst in einem Zuludorf auf. Seine glühende Verehrung gilt Nelson Mandela, der den weissen Beherrschern den Kampf angesagt hat. Seine Bildung ist geprägt von der Missionsschule und vor allem durch den Einfluss des Schulleiters Pater Ross, der seinen Zöglingen mit glühendem Eifer von den Minnegesängen der europäischen Ritter im Mittelalter erzählt. Dumisan erfährt aber gemäss dem Willen des Vaters nach altem Zuluritual seine Initiation ins Erwachsenenleben und entwickelt sich zum berühmt berüchtigten Frauenheld. Ausgerechnet an dem Tag, als er hofft seine grosse Liebe erobern zu können, erfährt er von der Verhaftung seines veehrten Nelson Mandelas und nichts mehr geht. Er bleibt dreissig Jahre lang impotent, bis zum Tag der Entlassung von Nelson Mandela. Der Entwicklungsroman beschreibt in wunderschönen Bildern und mit Humor die Zerrissenheit der Schwarzen in Südafrika, zwischen europäischem Einfluss und alter Tradition. Ab 16 Jahren, ****, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser.
