With Nathan Trantraal
In 2018, Trantraal received the Jan Rabie and Majorie Wallace writer’s bursary to work on his graphic novel Die man wattie kinnes vang. It is the story of Damian de Jong, who recalls his childhood years in the Western Cape. On the very same sand dunes where he played as a boy, the serial killer known as The Railway Ripper killed Coloured boys and buried them in shallow graves. Die man wattie kinnes vang covers a specific historical period in the Cape Flats and the country’s history, while also commenting on our present reality.
