Die vyfde mevrou Brink is Karina M. Szczurek se memoir van haar lewe voor, tydens en ná haar huwelik met André P. Brink. Die Pools gebore Karina was sewe-en-twintig toe sy dié bekroonde skrywer, twee-en-veertig jaar ouer as sy, ontmoet het en hulle daarna 'n dekade lank bymekaar was. Sy skryf oor hulle verhouding: van die eerste ontmoeting in Wene, Oostenryk, haar verhuising oor vastelande heen om by hom te wees in Kaapstad, hoe sy standvastigheid in hulle huwelik gevind het, tot hoe sy uiteindelik die uitdagings van André se kwynende gesondheid in die laaste paar jare van sy lewe moes hanteer.

Hierdie openhartige vertelling is die verhaal van twee skrywersgeeste - 'n huldeblyk aan 'n huwelik wat tragies kortgeknip is, maar ook aan 'n liefde wat 'n leeftyd sal hou.

In Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda takes us from her family's desperate race to save a missing calf to finding her bra has been repurposed as a house martin's nest, and from wild swimming to the brutal winter that almost brought her to her knees.

The old house needs a lot of renovation and money is tight, so Amanda sets about the work herself, with some help from a travelling monk, a visiting plumber and Clive. It's fair to say things do not go according to plan!

Thanks to the invidious reputation of his most famous work, The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli exerts a unique hold over the popular imagination. But was Machiavelli as sinister as he is often thought to be? Might he not have been an infinitely more sympathetic figure, prone to political missteps, professional failures and personal dramas?

Alexander Lee reveals the man behind the myth, following him from cradle to grave, from his father's penury and the abuse he suffered at a teacher's hands, to his marriage and his many affairs (with both men and women), to his political triumphs and, ultimately, his fall from grace and exile. In doing so, Lee uncovers hitherto unobserved connections between Machiavelli's life and thought. He also reveals the world through which Machiavelli moved: from the great halls of Renaissance Florence to the court of the Borgia pope, Alexander VI, from the dungeons of the Stinche prison to the Rucellai gardens, where he would begin work on some of his last great works.

As much a portrait of an age as of a uniquely engaging man, Lee's gripping and definitive biography takes the reader into Machiavelli's world - and his work - more completely than ever before.

In August 2016, well-known South African businessman Herman Mashaba became mayor of Johannesburg, heading a DA-led coalition in the city. Three years later, in October 2019, he resigned from the party and his position as mayor. Three days later, DA leader Mmusi Maimane followed suit. At the time of his resignation, Mashaba's approval rating stood above 70 percent and there were calls in overwhelming numbers for him to stay. In this explosive new tell-all, his chief of staff and closest aide Michael Beaumont reveals the real story behind these events.
The Accidental Mayor examines what drove Mashaba to join the DA in the first place, why he was a reluctant mayoral candidate and how he nevertheless embraced the role when he was elected. It looks at how his background, motivations, and beliefs informed his approach to leadership, policy-making, and his unwavering commitment to rooting out corruption in the city. It addresses his comments on illegal immigration, xenophobia, hijacked buildings and the rule of law, and lists the personal triumphs and tribulations he faced daily.
In exploring Mashaba's time in office, this book also examines the ins and outs and the highs and lows of the fledgling minority coalition government that ousted the ANC in Johannesburg in 2016. For the first time, readers can get a glimpse behind the curtain of what went on.
What was discovered about the previous government's looting of Johannesburg? How did the ANC take to being in opposition? How challenging was it to work with the EFF? Which party proved the most difficult coalition partner? What exactly happened in Alexandra? All these questions and more are answered and explored in detail.
At a time when the DA's popularity is at an all-time low, The Accidental Mayor highlights the infighting and factionalism within the party and questions whether South Africa's official opposition has reached the end of the road. Can Herman Mashaba, arguably one of South Africa's most popular former mayors, offer an alternative for the future?

Khamr: The Makings Of A Waterslams is a true story that maps the author's experience of living with an alcoholic father and the direct conflict of having to perform a Muslim life that taught him that nearly everything he called home was forbidden.
A detailed account from his childhood to early adulthood, Jamil F. Khan lays bare the experience of living in a so-called middle-class Coloured home in a neighbourhood called Bernadino Heights in Kraaifontein, a suburb to the north of Cape Town. His memories are overwhelmed by the constant discord that was created by the chaos and dysfunction of his alcoholic home and a co-dependent relationship with his mother, while trying to manage the daily routine of his parents keeping up appearances and him maintaining scholastic excellence.

Khan's memories are clear and detailed, which in turn is complemented by his scholarly thinking and analysis of those memories. He interrogates the intersections of Islam, Colouredness and the hypocrisy of respectability as well as the effect perceived class status has on these social realities in simple yet incisive language, giving the reader more than just a memoir of pain and suffering.

Khan says about his debut book: 'This is not a story for the romanticisation of pain and perseverance, although it tells of overcoming many difficulties. It is a critique of secret violence in faith communities and families, and the hypocrisy that has damaged so many people still looking for a place and way to voice their trauma. This is a critique of the value placed on ritual and culture at the expense of human life and well-being, and the far-reaching consequences of systems of oppression dressed up as tradition.'

Johannes Bakkes is die geliefde skrywer van andersoortige reisverhale soos Ons is moertoe en Norrevok. Hierdie boek is meer persoonlik; hier skryf hy homself oop. Die subtitel is Reis na binne, die -ste -ste plek - hy is altyd op soek na die koudste, warmste, hoogste, droogste plek om te besoek. Hier word humoristiese vertellings oor sy reise afgewissel met sy pa se wolhaarstories en lewendige geskiedenisvertellings. Hy en sy seun vind aanklank tydens nog 'n onbesonne reis. Sy liefde vir sy familie is tasbaar. Gerrit Rautenbach noem die manuskrip “sy beste skryfwerk nog” en “blootstellend anders” Bakkes lê homself bloot in sy weerloosheid, vrees en krankheid. Hy wys wie hy was in die ou bedeling en hoe hy probeer hand bysit in die nuwe bedeling, wat hy nie gekies het nie. Dis 'n dapper, aangrypende reis vol humor en deernis.

Kate Clanchy wants to change the world and thinks school is an excellent place to do it. She invites you to meet some of the kids she has taught in her thirty-year career.

Join her as she explains everything about sex to a classroom of thirteen-year-olds. As she works in the school 'Inclusion Unit', trying to improve the fortunes of kids excluded from regular lessons because of their terrifying power to end learning in an instant. Or as she nurtures her multicultural poetry group, full of migrants and refugees, watches them find their voice and produce work of heartbreaking brilliance.

While Clanchy doesn't deny stinging humiliations or hide painful accidents, she celebrates this most creative, passionate and practically useful of jobs. Teaching today is all too often demeaned, diminished and drastically under-resourced. Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me will show you why it shouldn't be.
