Icebo likaJean Hanff Korelitz

Ukuphanga ngaphakathi kophango. Ndiyathetha, andifuni ukuthi uJean Hanff Korelitz webile UJoel dicker Inxalenye yembali yayo kaHarry Quebert owathi ngokuchanekileyo waziba iintliziyo zethu. Kodwa ukungqubana okunomxholo unaloo ndawo intle yokudibana phakathi kokwenyani kunye nentsomi kuba omabini amacebo asithatha phakathi kwemida malunga nokusetyenziswa kakubi kwemisebenzi equlunqwe ngabanye, kuquka nabamnyama...

UHarry Quebert ekuthethwa ngaye ngeli xesha ubizwa ngokuba nguJake. Kuphela kukuba ikamva lakhe elibalisayo likhomba ngakumbi kuMarkus olangazelela uzuko lombhali owaziwayo kwihlabathi. Kodwa ke, akukho mpumelelo ngaphandle kwee-invoyisi xa umntu engumnini wonke womsebenzi obonisiweyo. Kwaye uJake akakho nokuba ukude...

Kodwa ...., kwaye kulapho inxalenye elungileyo ingena khona, njengaxa uhlobo olutsha olubalisayo luvula ngokubulela kwintelekelelo yengqondo ethile, iKorelitz iyakwazi ukuntshula amasebe amatsha, iimbono ezintsha, izinto ezintsha ezingalindelekanga. Njengomnye waba banxibelelanisi abasiqhathayo, lo mbhali akashiyi imikhondo efana noDicker kunye neenkumbulo zakhe eziphindaphindiweyo. Kwimeko yeKorelitz, yonke into igxile kwi-intuited implosion kodwa ayizange ilinganiswe kubo bonke ubukhulu bayo bokugqibela.

Xa umbhali osemtsha esifa phambi kokuba agqibe inoveli yakhe yokuqala, utitshala wakhe, umbhali wenoveli ongaphumelelanga, ugqiba kwelokuba aqhubeke neploti. Incwadi ephumayo yimpumelelo emangalisayo. Kodwa kuthekani ukuba omnye umntu uyazi? Yaye ukuba umkhohlisi akakwazi ukuqonda ukuba ngubani na osebenza naye, ubeka esichengeni sento embi kakhulu kunokulahlekelwa ngumsebenzi wakhe.

UJacob Finch Bonner wayengumbhali omncinci othembisayo nonoveli yakhe yokuqala yaba yimpumelelo ehloniphekileyo. Namhlanje, ufundisa kwinqanaba lesithathu inkqubo yokubhala kwaye uzama ukugcina isidima esincinci asishiye; akabhalanga, ndingasathethi ke ngokupapasha, nantoni na endilisekileyo kwiminyaka.

Xa uEvan Parker, oyena mfundi unempakamo, exelela uJake ukuba akafuni ncedo lwakhe ukuze aqhubeke nencwadi yakhe kuba ecinga ukuba iyelenqe lencwadi yakhe eqhubekayo likhulu, uJake uyamgxotha njengoyena mfundi ungaqhelekanga. Kodwa ke . . . mamela icebo

U-Jake ubuyela kwindlela esezantsi yekhondo lakhe lomsebenzi kwaye ulungiselela ukupapashwa kwenoveli yokuqala ka-Evan Parker: kodwa oko akwenzeki. UJake ufumanisa ukuba umfundi wakhe wangaphambili uswelekile, engakhange ayigqibe incwadi yakhe, kwaye wenza into anokuthi ayenze nawuphi na umbhali onexabiso letyuwa ngebali elinje: ibali ekufuneka libaliswe ngokupheleleyo.

Kwiminyaka nje embalwa emfutshane, zonke iingqikelelo zikaEvan Parker zizalisekile, kodwa uJake ungumbhali uyonwabela impumelelo. Usisityebi, udumileyo, uyanconywa kwaye ufunda kwihlabathi liphela. Kodwa ekuphakameni kobomi bakhe obutsha obuzukileyo, ufumana i-imeyile, isoyikiso sokuqala kwiphulo eloyikisayo elingaziwa: Ulisela, i-imeyile ithi.

Njengoko uJake ezabalazela ukuqonda umchasi wakhe aze afihle inyaniso kubafundi bakhe nakubapapashi bakhe, uqala ukufunda ngakumbi ngomfundi wakhe ongasekhoyo, yaye oko akufumanisayo kuyammangalisa kwaye kumoyike. Ngubani uEvan Parker kwaye weza njani nombono wenoveli yakhe "yokubheja ngokuqinisekileyo"? Lithini ibali lokwenyani ngebali kwaye libiwe ngubani?

Uyilo, uKorelitz
