The resonance of Call Me Woman is as great in 2018 as when first published in 1985. Like millions of black South Africans made strangers in the land of their birth. Ellen Kuzwayo lost a great deal in her lifetime: the farm in the Orange Free State which had belonged to her family for nearly a hundred years; her hopes for a full and peaceful life for her children; even her freedom, when, at the age of 63, she found herself detained under the so-called Terrorism Act for an offence never specified. But she never lost her courage.
This remarkable autobiography refuses to lose focus only on the author, for it draws on the unrecorded history of a whole people. In telling her own personal and political story over 70 years. Ellen Kuzwayo speaks for, and with, the women among whom she worked and lived. Their courage and dignity remain a source of wonder.

On Monday 18th September 2017, Mark Beaumont pedalled through the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. 78 days, 14 hours and 40 minutes earlier he set off from the same point, beginning his attempt to circumnavigate the world in record time. Covering more than 18,000 miles and cycling through some of the harshest conditions one man and his bicycle can endure, Mark made history. He smashed two Guinness World Records and beat the previous record by an astonishing 45 days.

Around the World in 80 Days is the story of Mark's amazing achievement - one which redefines the limits of human endurance. It is also an insight into the mind of an elite athlete and the physical limits of the human body, as well as a kaleidoscopic tour of the world from a very unique perspective; inspired by Jules Verne's classic adventure novel, Mark begins his journey in Paris and cycles through Europe, Russia, Mongolia and China. He then crosses Australia, rides up through New Zealand and across North America before the final 'sprint finish' thorough Portugal, Spain and France, all at over 200 miles a day. This is the story of a quite remarkable adventure, by a quite remarkable man.

Ton Vosloo's remarkable career in the media spanned nearly 60 years in South Africa's history. During this turbulent time, South Africa went through the transition from Afrikaner Nationalist rule to an ANC government. At the helm of the leading press group founded in 1913 to support nascent Afrikaner nationalism, Vosloo's story is not just one of newspapers and politics but also one of singular business and commercial success as the Naspers Group evolved from a print
group to an electronic company with significant investments across the world. In 1983 Vosloo was appointed managing director of Naspers and set about vigorously transforming the group. On the ideological front, it was a fight to the death with the old Transvaal's predominantly right-wing Perskor Group for the soul of the Afrikaner.

Ton Vosloo is een van die mees gerekende koerant- en sakemanne in Suid-Afrika. Gedurende sy loopbaan van sowat sestig jaar het Suid-Afrika op politieke front 'n drastiese ommekeer ondergaan: die Nasionale Party het plek gemaak vir 'n ANC-regering, wat gelei het tot transformasie op sosiale, ekonomiese en sakefront. In 1983 is Vosloo as die besturende direkteur van Naspers aangestel en het hy hom dit ten doel gestel om dié groep - wat in 1913 as mondstuk van die Nasionale Party gestig is - te vernuwe. Vosloo het die maatskappy deur diep, onstuimige waters gestuur: op ideologiese vlak was dit 'n geveg tot die dood toe met die regse Perskor-groep om die steun van Afrikaners te wen. Naspers moes ook op kommersiële vlak moderniseer.

You make me possible: The Love Letters of Karina M. Szczurek & André Brink
Novelist André Brink married Karina Szczurek when he was 71 and she was 29. They were together for 10 years before he died on a plane, beside her, high above Africa in February 2015.
Selected and edited by Karina M. Szczurek, the love letters between herself and the writer André Brink included in You Make Me Possible tell in detail the story of how they met in Austria in December 2004, fell in love, and decided to forge a future together. The intense correspondence which followed in the weeks after their fateful encounter recounts their courtship in words, revealing their initially unacknowledged attraction, their fears and longings, and writing a new world of recognition and togetherness into being. The letters chronicle the time between their first meeting and Karina's decision to relocate to South Africa to be with André in 2005 - a relationship which lasted until his death in 2015.

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.
