He is the author of eight books, including a political roman-à-clef, Primary Coloured, and an ambitious trilogy tracing the lives of three South African families from 1978 to 2000, Sunset Claws, of which Rapport said: ‘Meersman is one of this country’s greatest story tellers.’ His critically acclaimed memoir, A Childhood Made Up, was published in 2020. His books have been translated and published internationally.
