By Rayfield, Sheree; Uys, Pieter
This was subterranean Pretoria in the late nineteen seventies. A lost other-world populated by scores of characters stranger than fiction with names like Blouwildebeest. An underground of alternative lifestyles where equestrian elites rubbed shoulders with lowlifes, where the rut...hless businesswoman co-existed with the lumpenprole and the bohemian with the bureaucrat. Three glimpses across space and time into this now mythical realm: The saga of Fat Lynn & Lynn Blouwildebeest who facilitated the selling of a beast and trespassed in a college dormitory; The tale of Elvis of Athos, her allies and her adversaries and the denizens of the deep; The story of Skinner Street, the illicit retail trade and a police raid, and the poetry of defiance and resignation. Narratives of passion, perversion and prostitution in the bosom of the Apartheid beast. A parade of grotesqueries under the noses of the censors while they banned and cut and barred books and films and songs to preserve the people's purity. The late, great Federico Fellini would have given his all to capture every nuance, to preserve every depravity against oblivion.Read more
