I am trying to remember a book written by a South african doctor ( I think). Its a novel , bit trashy. I think his name was Van Nierop or something like that. Can anyone help?

Dankie

You might be thinking of Leon van Nierop, although he's not a doctor. He is a screenwriter, novelist and film critic. Only one of his film books has so far been catalogued on LT, but he has also authored several novels -- and yes, you could call some of them a bit trashy, I guess!

Yes I think you are right, But I think it was about a doctor. Do you know the names of his books (lol)

Any of these, perhaps? Wolwedans in die Skemer, Adrenalien, Die Mense van Hertestraat, Skrikkelkind, Doodloopstraat, Goëlfabriek, Paradys?

The Author is, I am sure. Jack Van Niftrik, A medical doctor. I still can't find him listed or the book name

Nothing by him in the South African National Library apart from the proceedings of a medical conference ... could it have been self-published?

The wonders of google. After remembering the name I googled him and got an email address. I wrote about 30 minutes ago and have received the following reply.

Hello

Yes. The book title is “Where Rumour Never Reaches” and was published by Jonathan Ball Publishers in 1980- hardcover and paperback

Jack van Niftrik

The weird thing , as always, was when I tried to add it, it found the work.
