About Dalene Matthee

Acclaimed and well-loved South African writer Dalene Matthee was born in Riversdal in the Western Cape in 1938. After studying and teaching music she began writing children's stories and later short stories and novels for adults in Afrikaans. Her works have been translated into more than fourteen languages. The first to appear in English was the best-selling Circles in a Forest, followed by Fiela's Child - both of which were made into feature films - The Day the Swallows Spoke, The Mulberry Forest and, in 2004, DreamForest. Matthee's writing has won her many awards, including the Afrikaans Language and Cultural Association's Literary Award (three times). Her knowledge of the famous Knysna Forest was legendary and she received an award from the Southern African Institute of Forestry 'in recognition of exceptional service'. Dalene Matthee died in February 2005. Her last novel, Die Uitgespoeldes, was completed shortly before her death. It was published by Penguin Books in 2005 in both its original Afrikaans and in English translation as Driftwood. Both Circles in a Forest and Fiela's Child were reissued as Penguin Modern Classics in 2005.
