Jump to navigation Jump to search

Etienne Leroux (1922–1989)[1] is an Afrikaans author and member of the South African Sestigers literary movement.

He was a mentor for the young Pieter Fourie when the latter was working for the post office in Koffiefontein and Bloemfontein, urging him to return to school, go to university and become ultimately a writer. They became life-long friends.

A number of his works were adapted for stage and screen, including Gert Garries – 'n Baaisiekel Babelas (2002) and Die Mugu (2003) by Fourie.
