Herman Charles Bosman – Between the lines is a biography of Herman Charles Bosman, who has been widely recognised as one of South Africa’s best short story writers and essayists. He was a man of very special gifts: he was a writer of supreme skill in narration and characterisation, he had an impressive command of language and, above all, his work was illuminated by a play of humour that placed it entirely in a category of its own. In this work on Bosman’s life, Valerie Rosenberg has succeeded admirably in drawing a picture of the man and the writer. He is present in these pages in all his baffling complexity, with all his fears and foibles, his endearing human traits, and with those dark reaches of the soul that at times threatened to topple his life into catastrophe, before which he himself recoiled in horror.
