Wolf, wolf : a novel by Eben Venter( Book )

How should a man be? Mattie Duiker is trying very hard to live up to his dying father's wishes. HE is putting aside childish things, starting his first business serving healty take-away food to the workers of Cape Town. His Pa is proud. At the same time, Mattie is pulled toward an altogether different version of masculinity, in which oiled and toned bodies cavort for him at the click of a mouse. His porn addiction both threatens his relationship with his boyfriend, Jack, and imperils his inheritance. Pa's peacocking days as a swaggering businessman are done, but even as the cancer shrivels and crisps him, the old man's ancient authority intensifies as it shrinks, like Mattie's own signature sauce. Pa haltingly prepares his son for life without him, and himself for life without a male heir. And, while the family wrestles with matters of entitlement and inheritance, around them a new South Africa is quietly but persistently nudging its way forwards

One rainy night in Australia, Marlouw's sister phones with the request that he fetch her son 'from that bloody country'. And Marlouw, with his club foot and hardened spirit, believes it is his fate to carry out this instruction. Drenched in sweat after an ominous flight, his exodus takes him through a South Africa where poverty is rife, infrastructure has collapsed, AIDS has become widespread, and corruption reigns. He is told: 'the whites who've stayed on, stay because they're not able to leave'. Yet still he journeys deeper into the unknown — past the suffering masses alongside the road to the outer darkness of the rural areas. There are rumours that Koert is on the old family farm, now in the possession of the family's former workers. That there, guarded and isolated, he has built himself a powerful empire as the King of Meat. Ouplaas now nominally belongs to the black families who once provided its staff, but is effectively 'ruled' by the ominous, unseen Koert, who, it becomes clear, is the 'trencherman' of the title. (The term refers to someone with a large appetite, but also to a parasitic creature.) Here, on Ouplaas, at the end of Marlouw's terrible journey, the heart of terror is cut open …

"Simon is 'n wêreldreisiger, vertroud met die reëls van vryheid en ongebonde plesier. In Bali verbind 'n selfoon-app twee vreemdelinge vir anonieme seks, terwyl die taal op hulle lippe identiteite eggo wat albei reeds agtergelaat het. Kaapstad is vol versteekte ruimtes, vir die uitleef van sensuele vryhede, maar in Nederland kom die skrywende Simon te staan teen homself. In Tokio probeer twee ex-pats vrede maak met die land wat hulle van mekaar skei, en in Istanbul uiteindelik: dat liefde saam met seks mag kom. Deurentyd keer herinneringe terug: kleintyd in die Oos-Kaap, sy pa, die plaas en voorligting aan die hand van 'n beesboerdery. In sy sielkundige se spreekkamer bind Simon onder dr. Spiteri se leiding die grepe van oomblikke en ervarings aan mekaar."--Cover
