Soon to be a major motion picture!

Poppie Nogena's arduous journey covers 40 years of South Africa's history, sweeping through the riots of Sharpeville, Soweto and Cape Town, on to an indefinite but unpromising future. The plot reflects the brutality and injustice of the Apartheid system, while Elsa Joubert's characterisations reflects the courage and fortitude of people in the face of hardship and difficulty.

Poppie's contented childhood in the Cape's countryside came to an end when she married a migrant worker, and was forced by the authorities to move with him and their young family to the unfamiliar and bewildering city of Cape Town.

No sooner had she established her roots in the new township, when the laws changed and she was informed of her obligation to relocate to the Ciskei, her husband's homeland. He, as a migrant worker, was permitted to remain in the Cape to work.

Over a ten-year period, Poppie fought the heinous 'pass law' system, winning limited extensions to the permit that would allow her to live and work in Cape Town and enable her to keep the family together and provide an education for her children.

Her own anger was shared by thousands and inevitably the brooding undercurrent of discontent exploded throughout South Africa. Suddenly, there were no further extensions. Poppie and her children were forcibly removed from their home and 'resettled' in a new township, hundreds of miles away near East London.

The Long Journey of Poppie Nongena is an epic tale of the endless adversity and struggle of a humble black woman under Apartheid laws. Poppie emerges from being a simple country girl to becoming an archetypal heroine of South Africa.

Elsa Joubert takes us back, and further still, to a time in South Africa's history when borders were moot. The English translation of Joubert's late apartheid novel, Missionaris (1988), restores Aart Van der Lingen's frail corpus to a place of significance in light of the country's fragile democracy. We follow the harrowing journey of the man whose mission is to bring God to the wilderness. But his journey wears down his faith in what it means to be human amidst slavery and brutal imperialism. As the landscape of early 19th century South Africa rejects his presence at every turn, the deformed missionary finds himself having to come to terms with his own spiritual pathos. In a land of warriors and frontiersmen, the lowly man of God must forge his own path. From the Cape in the West, to Graaff Reinet in the East and as far North as Klaarwater, Van der Lingen's life becomes one of exodus, without the promise of domicile.
Joubert acquaints us with the chilling image of the African South under the duress of Europe's violent incursion. She forgoes the romanticism of other colonial narratives by sticking close to the history, furnishing Van der Lingen's account only to reflect the angst and moral dubiousness of white occupation and gun-wielding evangelism. We are forced to question what has become of the identity of the white South African - once the master and now a shareholder in the future of the nation. Joubert asks of all her readers to contemplate the genealogy of our own authority and to consider in whose footsteps we will follow.

Hierdie boek is die voltooiing van Elsa Joubert se outobiografiese drieluik wat ingelei is deur 'n Wonderlike geweld (2005) en Reisiger (2009). Dit fokus hoofsaaklik op die skrywer se latere jare, in die aftreeoord in Kaapstad waar sy nou al geruime tyd woon, maar haar belewenis van die hede en onlangse verlede word onlosmaaklik vervleg met herinneringe aan veel verder terug, alles geteken met die kenmerkende woordvaardigheid van een van Afrikaans se mees gevierde skrywers.

Die jare 1894 tot 1994 is vir die Afrikaner 'n tydperk van grootste maar veral pynlike gebeure. 'n Gewone Suid- Afrikaanse familie beleef in hierdie roman die Anglo- Boereoorlog, die Eerste Wêreldoorlog, die 1914- Rebellie, 1918 se tragiese Groot Griep en 1938 se besielende Voortrekkereeufees, die Tweede Wêreldoorlog se gruwels, die 1948- verkiesing wat tot apartheid se hoogbloei lei en die tagtigerjare se opstande.

Die tweede deel van Elsa Joubert se outobiografiese tweeluik is 'n lewensverhaal wat soos 'n roman lees. Dit begin waar sy as vyf-en-twintigjarige haar eerste alleenreis aanpak, 'n tog wat haar deur Afrika na Europa neem en die begin vorm van haar lotsgebondenheid met hierdie kontinent, dié "boeiende, donker, onbekende ding" wat haar haar lewe lank getrek het.

Poppie is die storie van 'n swart vrou wat in die jare van apartheid met 'n man van die land getroud was. Soos met Joubert se reisbeskrywings, is hierdie drama 'n reis in vele opsigte: enersyds Poppie se lang swerftog op soek na standvastigheid en 'n veilige toekoms vir haar kinders, andersyds 'n reis van twee verwyderde kulture na mekaar toe, maar uiteindelik die reis na die hart van 'n medemens.

Die eerste volume van die outobiografie van Elsa Joubert, een van die mees gerekende skrywers in Afrikaans. Die outobiografie dek die eerste 25 jaar van Joubert se lewe, haar grootwordjare in die Paarl, haar skooljare, studentejare aan die universiteite van Stellenbosch en Kaapstad, eerste onderwysposte en haar slyping in die joernalistiek. Dit is 'n outobiografie wat met verstommende detail 'n beeld bied van 'n bepaalde era in die land se geskiedenis, maar ook van die wording van 'n skrywer. Joubert deins nie terug van omstrede kwessies nie, en onder meer kom haar betrokkenheid by die Ossewabrandwag aan bod. Maar die vernaamste beeld is die van 'n skrywer wat as kind reeds die drang na woorde ervaar, wat in die onstuimige tyd na die Tweede Wêreldoorlog te midde van klomp invloede haar onafhanklike stem as skrywer probeer vind.

Eugene Marais Prize (1964)
Waarom het Carlos Figueira se plantasiewerkers, sy “eie mense”, in opstand gekom en in een dag alles vernietig wat hulle vir hom opgebou het? Hy het die “barbare” nie só sleg behandel nie, nie só vreeslik uitgebuit nie. Hulle het goeie kos gekry en klere op Kersdag; as sy sweep deur die lug gesny het, het hulle dadelik teruggestaan. Hy het net één van hulle doodgeslaan, maar dit was lank gelede.
