USue Grafton uhamba nonobumba wokugqibela woonobumba.

U-Sue Grafton waziva ngathi ufuna ukubulala umyeni wakhe wangaphambili xa babejongana nenkundla yokugcina unyana wabo kwaye, oko kwakuqulathe ubundlongondlongo yaba yincwadi yakhe yokuqala yolwaphulo-mthetho, A Yokrexezo (A isuka kuAlibi koqobo).

"Endaweni yokuchitha ubomi bam entolongweni, ndacinga ngento ebhetele kakhulu: ukumbulala encwadini kwaye ndifumane nemali ngayo ..."

UGrafton akazange athumele kuphela iimvakalelo ezinzulu zokuqhawula kwakhe umtshato ngokubhala inoveli ebalaseleyo, kodwa ngokungazi wadala umphenyi wokuqala wasetyhini ukuba aqhekeze iingcinga zabasetyhini ezazisetyenziswa kaninzi ukuza kuthi ga ngaloo mhla.  

Kinsey mihone Yayiyinguqulelo kuhlobo lohlobo: Umfazi wokuqala, ngaphaya kuka-Agatha Christie Nkosazana Marple, othatha ubume obuphambili kunye nomthwalo onzima wohlobo lwe-noir, "umcuphi" njengoko uGrafton wayekhetha ukuyibiza. UKinsey akayontombi yomcuphi, akangomntu olixhoba, akanguye umncedisi, nguye ojamelana nabantu ababi kwaye asombulule ezona meko zinzima.

Yayingeyiyo injongo kaSue Grafton ukuba wayengazange afune ukubandakanya naliphi na ibango lentlalontle kwiinoveli zakhe kwaye loo nto yenza uKinsey abonakale nangakumbi. Kungokwemvelo, kuyinyani kwaye njengalo naluphi na uphawu olwakhiwe kakuhle lwenzeka njengabantu bokwenyani: abanye bayayithanda kwaye abanye abayithandi.

UKinsey usinda ebuntwaneni obukrakra, obungakhathaliyo ngenxa yokusweleka kwabazali bakhe xa wayeneminyaka emihlanu kuphela. Umakazi wakhe wamnika yonke into ayifunayo ukuze akhule kwaye hayi iota yothando. Kwiminyaka engama-32, xa uthotho lwe Oonobumba boLwaphulo-mthethoUngumcuphi wabucala, omnye wabo bacuphi abaphatha iimeko ezikruqulayo nezilawulayo, de kube ityala liba nzima ngakumbi kunesiqhelo kwaye iqala isaga. Uhlala eCalifornia, eSanta Teresa (ekhumbuza iSanta Bárbara, indawo yokuhlala kaSue Grafton, kanye njengokuba uVetusta ekhumbula uOviedo eRegenta de Clarín), ukrelekrele kwaye ukhuthele, yimbaleki kwaye yingcali kwezokhuseleko. Phakathi kuka-A de Alibi kunye no-Y de Izolo, iminyaka engama-25 idlulile, kodwa u-Kinsey Milhone akakhange abe mdala kwaye uyaqhubeka nenoveli emva kwenoveli enenkani, eqhubekayo, enobukroti njengakwimeko yakhe yokuqala. Kubomi bukaKinsey akukho qabane lizinzileyo, kodwa akayedwa: Ngexesha lokutsiba okungamashumi amabini anesihlanu kwialfabhethi yakhe, uhamba noRosie, umhlobo wakhe kunye nomnini werestyu, ngenxa yoko uKinsey atya enye into ngaphandle ukutya okukhawulezayo, kuhamba neglasi yakhe engenakwahlulwa yeChardonnay kunye noHenry, umnikazi omdala onomtsalane wendlu ahlala kuyo irente.

I-A yokukrexeza ayincedanga nje uSue Grafton ukuba oyise amaxesha akhe amabi, kodwa waqalisa nesaga ebanzi nephumeleleyo eyaqhubeka ne-B yezilwanyana (B yeBulglar yoqobo) de Kwaye ukusukela izolo, epapashwe ngo-2017 kwaye engekaguqulelwa kwiSpanish.

A yoKrexezo: Ukuqala kweAlfabhethi yoLwaphulo-mthetho

Kufanelekile ukuba uphinde ufunde le Alfabhethi ibalaseleyo ilahlekileyo ileta yayo yokugqibela kwaye ugqibezele incwadi yamabali UKinsey kunye nam, apho umbhali waba nesibindi sokufumanisa ngobomi bakhe phambi kwabafundi bakhe kwaye asixelele ukuba ingakanani iKinsey eyayisisipili sikaSue, ekhuliswe kwikhaya elinabazali ababini abanxila.

UKinsey soze ayenze kwiscreen esikhulu. Umbhali wayo, owaqala umsebenzi wakhe njengombhali wesikrini, esebenza, phakathi kwabanye, ekwenziweni kweenoveli zika-Agatha Christie, iSparkling Cyanide kunye neMfihlakalo kwiCaribbean, uhlala enqaba ukuvumela uKinsey ukuba asebenze eHollywood. Wayecinga ukuba ukuba uyishiya ezandleni zababhali bencwadi ngenceba yexabiso lenzuzo yoosomashishini abaphambili beefilimu, wayeza kuyeka ukuba ngubani, bayamonakalisa, kwaye woyike nokuqhubeka kwayo: Andifuni ukubeka emngciphekweni ukuba ubuso bomdlali weqonga obemmele wangena entlokweni yakhe ngexesha lokubhalwa. Esi sithintelo sidlula njengenxalenye yelifa kubantwana bakhe kwaye intombi yakhe yasikhumbula emva kokubhubha kwakhe.
