Rome, 1955

The artists are gathering together for a photograph. In one of Rome's historic villas, a party is bright with near-genius, shaded by the socialite patrons of their art. Bear Bavinsky, creator of vast, masculine, meaty canvases, is their god. Larger than life, muscular in both figure and opinion, he blazes at art criticism and burns half his paintings. He is at the centre of the picture. His wife, Natalie, edges out of the shot.

From the side of the room watches little Pinch - their son. At five years old he loves Bear almost as much as he fears him. After Bear abandons their family, Pinch will still worship him, striving to live up to the Bavinsky name; while Natalie, a ceramicist, cannot hope to be more than a forgotten muse. Trying to burn brightly under his father's shadow - one of the twentieth century's fiercest and most controversial painters - Pinch's attempts flicker and die. Yet by the end of a career of twists and compromises, Pinch will enact an unexpected rebellion that will leave forever his mark upon the Bear Bavinsky legacy.

What makes an artist? In The Italian Teacher, Tom Rachman displays a nuanced understanding of twentieth-century art and its demons, vultures and chimeras. Moreover, in Pinch he achieves a portrait of painful vulnerability and realism: talent made irrelevant by personality. Stripped of egotism, authenticity or genius, Pinch forces us to face the deep held fear of a life lived in vain.

In hierdie boek- wat in twee dele gepubliseer is en gedeeltelik gebaseer is op E.H. Raidt se Afrikaans en sy Europese verlede - word opnuut gekyk na Afrikaans se veelkantige herkoms: die Europese geskiedenis van Afrikaans (grondig vernuwe en beduidend aangevul) én veral Afrikaans se Afrikaherkoms - oor die opbouproses sedert die 17de eeu om Afrikaans in 1925 as amptelike taal erken te kry, Afrikaans se ontwikkeling as volwaardige standaardtaal in die 20ste eeu en veral die aanneem van die funksies wat hiermee gepaard gaan, Afrikaans se ongelukkige apartheidsverlede en die bevrydings- en versoeningsprosesse wat hierna nodig was. Die wit verlede van Afrikaans word aangevul met die bruin en swart verlede sodat ʼn gedeelde verlede van die sprekers van Afrikaans na vore kom.

Die storie van Afrikaans is die biografie van Afrikaans soos dit op drie kontinente ontwikkel het: in Europa (waar die ontwikkeling van Nederlands as die basisvorm van Afrikaans gedokumenteer en uitgebeeld word), in Afrika (waar die 17de-eeuse Hollandse dialek met verloop van tyd onder eiesoortige omstandighede en onder invloed van verskeie faktore uiteindelik volwaardig Afrikaans geword het) en vanuit Asië (waar die impak van die taal van die slawe die wordende Afrikaans beïnvloed het tot die vorm wat dit wel geword het). Die outeurs gee aan die hand van talle illustrasies 'n nuwe, meer volledige en inklusiewe blik op Afrikaans se ingewikkelde verlede.

In Deel 1 is die Europese verlede van Afrikaans weergegee. In Deel 2 kom die Afrikaverlede van Afrikaans aan bod. Die boek verken paaie wat nog nie voorheen ontgin is nie en dit sal ʼn besliste bydrae tot die debat oor Afrikaans se verlede wees.

Two Western men are sent to work far away from home, tasked with paving a road the length of a country. The country is dangerous and largely lawless, only just recovering from a devastating civil war, and the road will unite north and south. The road is Progress. The road is Hope. And, when it is completed, a great parade will march it end to end.

The two men follow a route from the outer villages to the capital, operating their high-tech road-building machine and bickering along the way. One man is highly experienced, reliable, focused, pausing only to sleep and eat the company-issued food. The other is chaotic, curious, forever joking with locals and breaking protocol. But when illness, corruption, and theft compromise their mission, the pair discover danger far greater than anything they had anticipated.

1324, Kilkennie

A woman seeks refuge for herself and her daughter in the household of a childhood friend.

The friend, Alice Kytler, gives her former companion a new name, Petronelle, a job as a servant, and warns her to hide their old connection.

In the months that follow Petronelle learns that in the city pride, greed and envy are as dangerous as the wolves that prowl the savage countryside. And she realizes that Alice's household is no place of safety.

Once again, Petronelle decides to flee with her daughter. But this time she confronts forces greater than she could ever have imagined and she finds herself fighting for more than her freedom ...

Inspired by a true story, Her Kind is a tense, moving and atmospheric re-imagining of the events leading up to the Kilkenny Witch Trial of 1324.

'Essential reading about love, life and care' Kate Mosse
'Nobody has written on dementia as well as Nicci Gerrard in this new book' Andrew Marr

'Dementia is all around us, in our families and in our genes; perhaps in our own futures. If it's not you or me, it's someone we love.'

After her own father's death from dementia, the writer and campaigner Nicci Gerrard set out to explore the illness that now touches millions of us, yet which we still struggle to speak about. What does dementia mean, for those who live with it, and those who care for them?

This truthful, humane book is an attempt to understand. It is filled with stories, both moving and optimistic: from those living with dementia to those planning the end of life, from the scientists unlocking the mysteries of the brain to the therapists using art and music to enrich the lives of sufferers, from the campaigners battling for greater compassion in care to the families trying to make sense of this 'incomprehensible de-creation of the self'. It explores memory, language, identity, ageing and the notion of what it truly means to care. And it asks, how do we begin to value those who become old, invisible, forgotten? What do we owe them, and each other as humans? What, in the end, really matters?
