Mafeking Road, Southsea, PO4 9BG is within the Central Southsea and St Judes policing neighbourhood, under the Hampshire Constabulary force area. Mafikeng Road is a superb collection, focussed on changes to life in this dispersed community associated with the Anglo-Boer war.

We are pleased to offer to let this five double bedroom, two bathroom student house with front and rear gardens located in the Coombe Road area of Brighton.

Sharon was excellent, she kept us informed at all stages and was a really calming objective influence in the process. Additionally, the only negative of Bosman's literary style is that non-South African readers may get lost in the stories depth. If you like Mark Twain, or the beauty of the African veld, they might appeal to you as they did to me - I have bought everything of Bosman that I could find.

Note that occasionally some properties in a postcode may still not be eligible due to conditions on the ground, or the building structure. Some of his stories have a wistful, sad beauty; others, like the Oom Schalk Lourens ones, are robustly funny.

This edition is the same version that I had the fortune of reading as part of my high school curriculum many moons ago. I could go on lying there under the withaak and looking for the cattle like that all day, if necessary. When he was 16, he started writing amusing short stories for the national Sunday newspaper (the Sunday Times). Arington are pleased to offer to let this six double bedroom, two bathroom student house with front and rear gardens located in the Coombe area of Brighton.

These slyly simple stories of the unforgiving South African Transvaal reveal a little-described (and rarely romanticized) world of Afrikaner life in the late 19th Century. It seemed a long way, now, from the kitchen to the voorhuis, and I had to lean against the wall several times to think.

The mild ridicule that comes off the pages is hilarious if you get it, but if you read the stories without thinking, you'd never guess the actions (or discussions) are supposed to be laughed at.

Henry-style socko punchlines, for their atmosphere, for the history, read them simply because they’re wonderful, entertaining, and humane stories where to weep is to laugh, read them because they make a mostly forgotten world live, but read them. Each of the stories is hilarious, disturbing, or deeply moving, depending how open the reader is to letting the superb language drift into his or her consciousness.Areas with large single populations are often in built-up areas, with good entertainment facilities. Like our own Mark Twain, Herman Charles Bosman wields a laughing intolerance of foolishness and prejudice, a dazzling use of wit and clear-sighted judgment. Oom Schalk is at times the wise old man of the Bosveld, the village idiot, a racist, a thoughtful voice on race relations, a bumbling romantic and a skilled match-maker. Anyone wanting to crawl into the heart (I nearly said brain) of a Boer-War-era rural Afrikaner white farmer in South Africa, could do no better than read these and other wonderful short stories by Bosman. Herman Charles Bosman’s prose is easy as breathing and light as breath itself, perfectly suited for capturing those small, precious, otherwise fleeting moments in which gathered hope, colliding with given fact, defines, in a series of small steps, how we come to look upon life.
