Richard Victor Selope Thema was one of the influential black figures in South Africa in the 20th century - yet he is mostly forgotten today. He was a member of the ANC from 1912, serving for many years on its National Executive Committee. He was a founder of the All-African Convention, was elected to the Natives Representative Council, and was in constant demand as spokesperson and advocate for African rights. He was the first editor of Bantu World, which today is the Sowetan. This is his story.

Joost Wilfried Dirk Pyck is gebore in Gent op 25 Maart 1955 wat eintlik 25 April moes wees. Hy arriveer een maand te vroeg omdat sy moeder, toe net terug van die dokter, tussen vegtende studente moes deurkom. Die een groep was Vlaamse nasionaliste en die ander was anti-Vlaams. Net daar het hy sy opwagting gemaak. “Ek wou help om die regte Vlaminge te help,” reken hy graag.

Sy ouers is Wes-Vlaminge uit Brugge waar hy in sy vroeë jare gewoon het, daarna weer in Gent en later In Oostende aan die see. In1974 het hy vir drie jaar by die Belgiese Valskermkommando aangesluit. Later het hy as skrynwerker-meubelmaker begin werk terwyl hy aandklasse in beeldhou gevolg het en nog later homself bekwaam as klipkapper (natuursteenbewerker).

In 1993 beland hy in Suid-Afrika, eers in die Noord-Kaap, maar verhuis later na Klapmuts waar hy vorder tot meester-klipkapper. Hy, sy vrou Marie en hul Russiese Ural-syspanmotorfiets bly op 'n kleinhoewe, loopafstand van die Klapmuts-hotel af, waar jy hom (en Marie) meeste Vrydagmiddae sal kry met 'n welverdiende bier in sy hand en skuim op sy weglêsnor.

Hy bly trots Vlaams, maar is terselfdertyd 'n vurige kampvegter vir Afrikaans. Hy verwoord daarom ook graag sy stories in Afrikaans, gesout en gepeper met korrels Vlaams tussenin. Die Vlaminge is bekend vir hul vele dialekte. Joost s'n is absoluut uniek.

At Close of Day is the author's thoughts and meditations about old-age, ageing and the end of a life, together with memories of a general nature to give a stirring depiction of the author's life of almost eighty years. The series of autobiographical books that started with 'n Duitser aan die Kaap, Merksteen and Die laaste Afrikaanse boek is concluded with this work.
It is a highly personal book about old-age, the process of writing and self-determination with commentary about ageing and being old in a modern society, and was updated for the last time on 26 April 2017, a few days before his death. He gives practical hints and information about the possible and probable end of his life. The element of farewell and acceptance are obvious throughout the text. He realises that old age becomes the main theme of his thoughts and his daily life.
The references and quotations are poignant and speak of someone who made his reading world his living word. In the end he explains his liberating decision about his planned suicide.

One Rasatafarian brother (passed away), one ex-con brother (who can dance the pants off any woman and has a wicked sense of humour), another brother who's a big shot in the marine engineering industry (he makes a mean curry), and a sister who has the thankless task of staying at home and raising the rugrats (she has a way with words, and also makes a kick-ass briyani)'.In this moving and entertaining memoir, Iman shares stories and what she has learned from her colourful journey through life

Winging It
Jonathan Kaplan's journey from World-Class Ref to Rookie Solo Dad

Jonathan Kaplan, celebrated international rugby referee and former world record-holder for most Test caps, had his fair share of challenging moments on the field. He was known for his commitment to fair play, ability to defuse tense situations, and courage in making difficult, and sometimes controversial, decisions. All this would stand JK in good stead and come back into play when, at the age of 47, he made two life-changing decisions.

The first was to blow his whistle for the last time and end his career as a professional rugby ref. The second was to become a parent - and a solo parent at that. This is the story of JK's decision to have a baby by surrogate, the two-year fertility process that followed, and the subsequent birth of his son Kaleb.Winging It draws on the insights of key role-players in JK's journey, including the extraordinary experience of the surrogate mother herself. Exchanging rucks for reflux, mauls for milk bottles, scrums for storks (and other stories about Kaleb's conception), this account of how JK navigates the choppy waters of parenthood is disarmingly frank and scrupulously honest. At times poignant and tender, and at others downright funny, this is a thoroughly contemporary take on what constitutes a family and how we dare to build one.

One of the greatest political memoirs of all time' (Guardian) -- The Sunday Times Number 1 Bestseller What happens when you take on the establishment? In this blistering, personal account, world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis blows the lid on Europe's hidden agenda and exposes what actually goes on in its corridors of power. Varoufakis sparked one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in recent political history when, as finance minister of Greece, he attempted to re-negotiate his country's relationship with the EU. Despite the mass support of the Greek people and the simple logic of his arguments, he succeeded only in provoking the fury of Europe's political, financial and media elite. But the true story of what happened is almost entirely unknown - not least because so much of the EU's real business takes place behind closed doors. In this fearless account, Varoufakis reveals all: an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship, hypocrisy, collusion and betrayal that will shake the deep establishment to its foundations. As is now clear, the same policies that required the tragic and brutal suppression of Greece's democratic uprising have led directly to authoritarianism, populist revolt and instability throughout the Western world. Adults In The Room is an urgent wake-up call to renew European democracy before it is too late.

Here is Mandela the statesman, the prisoner, the father, sometimes the joker, and occasionally the disciplinarian.

Mandela is shown in snapshot, in the memories of old friends like George Bizos, in the words of inspiring legends like Muhammad Ali, leading the Defiance Campaign against apartheid laws, or doing the famous Madiba shuffle to Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Queen Elizabeth II.

100 Mandela Moments is an accessible introduction to the man who so profoundly influenced the South Africa of today.

The story of his life that emerges is as varied and complex, as touching and inspiring, as Madiba himself

This book is as much Albert Luthuli's extraordinary story as that of the ANC, which he led for 15 years. He gives an account of the repression and resistance that were to shape the South African political landscape forever: the Defiance Campaign, which marked the first mass challenge to apartheid, drafting the Freedom Charter, the Treason Trial, and the Alexandra bus boycott. 

This book bears witness to Luthuli's unfailing humility, perseverance, and passionate commitment to his values.

Ingrid Jonker, begaafde jong digter, loop op 19 Julie 1965 die see in by Drieankerbaai en verdrink. Sy laat haar familie en vriende agter met meer vrae as antwoorde. Gedurende die afgelope 50 jaar het sy 'n ikoon van die Afrikaanse en Suid- Afrikaanse letterkunde geword. In so 'n mate, dat haar lewe en veral haar dood soms haar werk en die belangrike bydrae wat sy tot die literêre beweging van die Sestigers gemaak het, oorskadu.

Haar politieke sieninge, soos uitgedruk in haar poësie en haar passie en die droefheid van haar onstuimige liefdesverhoudings met onder andere Jack Cope en André P. Brink het al tot baie besprekings gelei. Sy het weer onder die publieke oog gekom toe oudpresident Nelson Mandela in sy inhuldigingsrede in 1994 in die Parlement een van haar gedigte aangehaal het. Hy het haar gedig: “Die Kind” voorgelees en gesê: “Sy was beide 'n digter en 'n Suid-Afrikaner.” Sedert haar dood is daar vele bespiegelings oor haar lewe en tragiese einde. Van dié vrae word beantwoord in hierdie eerste omvattende biografie. Petrovna Metelerkamp doen al jare navorsing oor Jonker. Sy neem die leser saam deur Ingrid se grootwordjare, digterslewe, liefdesverhoudings en die laaste paar jaar van haar lewe.

Metelerkamp bring nuwe inligting aan die lig wat sy neem uit onbekende nuwe briewe en dagboekinskrywings, o.m. uit die dagboeke van Jack Cope. Talle nuwe onderhoude met mense wat Jonker geken het, word in die biografie opgeneem. Sy weerlê ook die beeld van Jonker as 'n ongebalanseerde kunstenaar wat haar houvas op die werklikheid verloor het in hierdie toeganklike biografie oor een van Suid-Afrika se aangrypendste kunstenaars.

I was made in Coffee Bay. Right there on the beach, in the sand.' From the opening lines, we are drawn in and engrossed by this startling memoir of a singular childhood. Suzan is adopted as a newborn in the late 1960s into a seemingly loving and welcoming family living in Pietermaritzburg. But Suzan is set on a collision course with, most particularly, her adoptive mother, and society, from her very beginning. Suzan's relationship with her mother is fraught with drama, which veers over into a level of emotional abuse and needless cruelty that is shocking.

At the age of thirteen, Suzan is sent to a place of safety as a ward of the state, effectively 'orphaning' her. From there, she spirals out of control - fighting to survive in a world of other neglected, abandoned and abused children. She becomes a 'runner', escaping at every opportunity from her various places of confinement, grabbing her schooling in snatches, living on the edges of a drug and prostitution underworld, finding love wherever she can.

Suzan's young life was the stuff of movies, but it is her writing, in a voice that is unforgettable and true, that transforms her memories into something magical rarely matched in South African literature. A new classic.

The first ever memoirs from the Number One global bestselling adventure author.
Wilbur Smith has lived an incredible life of adventure, and now he shares the extraordinary true stories that have inspired his fiction. From being attacked by lions to close encounters with deadly reef sharks, from getting lost in the African bush without water to crawling the precarious tunnels of gold mines, from marlin fishing with Lee Marvin to near death from crash-landing a Cessna airplane, from brutal school days to redemption through writing and falling in love, Wilbur Smith tells us the intimate stories of his life that have been the raw material for his fiction.

Always candid, sometimes hilarious, and never less than thrillingly entertaining, On Leopard Rock is testament to a writer whose life is as rich and eventful as his novels are compellingly unputdownable.
