Who gave Jonathan Van Ness permission to be the radiant human he is today? No one, honey.
The truth is, it hasn't always been gorgeous for this beacon of positivity and joy. Before he stole our hearts as the grooming and self-care expert on Netflix's hit show Queer Eye, Jonathan was growing up in a small Midwestern town that didn't understand why he was so…over the top. From choreographed carpet figure skating routines to the unavoidable fact that he was Just. So. Gay., Jonathan was an easy target and endured years of judgement, ridicule and trauma - yet none of it crushed his uniquely effervescent spirit. Over the Top uncovers the pain and passion it took to end up becoming the model of self-love and acceptance that Jonathan is today.

Sarah Edmondson's compelling memoir of her recruitment into the NXIVM cult, the twelve years she spent within the organization (during which she enrolled over 2000 members), her breaking point, and her harrowing fight to get out, to help others and to heal. This is also a story about abuses of power, the role female friendships play in cults, and how sometimes the search to be 'better' can override everything else.

HERDRUK
Hierdie bekende kultuurhistorikus se heldeboek bevat gunstelingverhale oor onder andere bekende helde soos Racheltjie de Beer, Shaka, Dirkie Uys, Wolraad Woltemade en Klara Majola. Dit is 'n hele paar jaar dat Grobbelaar al skrywende met die mense van sy land die heldepad loop - al die mense van sy land, omdat hy met opset nie net die heldedade van sy volk beskryf nie. Hy het helde en heldedade op verskillende maniere benader: soms van buite, soms van binne, soms deur die oë van 'n buitestander.

Chika Jeune was born three days before the devastating earthquake that decimated Haiti in 2010. She spent her infancy in extreme poverty, and when her mother died giving birth to a baby brother, Chika was brought to the Have Faith Haiti Orphanage that Mitch and his wife, Janine operate.
Chika's arrival made a quick impression. Brave and self-assured, even as a three-year-old, she delighted the other kids and teachers. But at age five, Chika was suddenly diagnosed with a terminal disease that no doctor in Haiti could help with.
Mitch and Janine took Chika to America, hoping that treatment there would enable her to go back home.

Instead, Chika became a permanent part of their lives, as they embarked on a two-year, around-the-world journey to find a cure. As Chika's boundless optimism and humour taught Mitch the joys of caring for a child, he learnt that a relationship built on love, no matter what blows it takes, can never be lost.
This is Mitch Albom at his most poignant, powerful and personal. Chika is a celebration of a girl, her adoptive guardians, and the incredible bond they formed - a devastatingly beautiful portrait of what it means to be a family, regardless of how it is made.

How do you free your mind if you are trapped in a body that barely moves?

Phyllis Woolf is an inspiration. A Cerebal Palsy Quad, she has only partial use of her left hand, the rest of her body is inert. She uses an electric wheelchair to get around, and her movement is extremely restricted.

This is her journey from trying to survive to learning to thrive. Against all odds, she goes on to face her demons, get a degree, build a house, parasail, scuba dive, swim with dolphins, ride an elephant, travel the world and peel a banana.

Sassy, but warm, funny and deeply insightful, she uses her own life as an example of what we can achieve if we take responsibility for who we are. In a society obsessed by material things, she is a constant reminder that we are not defined merely by our physical appearance, but also by the capacity of our minds and spirit. Her insights offer profound inspiration and perspective for us all - disabled or not.

'We have all come to this world to work - it's just that some of us are in a wheelchair.

Byna drie dekades het verloop sedert ek die pad met die Boereprofeet en sy visioene in 1990 begin stap het. Dit was van meet af 'n taai, opdraande stryd; maar dit was ook 'n heilsame pad, 'n pad besaai met wonderwerke. Want dit wat ek op daardie pad beleef het, is vir my net so 'n groot gebeurtenis as wat die ontdekking van die visioene self was. En op die pad het heelwat van ons volksgenote menige dag 'n hand uitgesteek om dit vir my gelyk te maak. U sal hulle in die loop van die verhaal ontmoet.
Omdat ek my nog voortdurend met Siener se gesigte besig hou, het ek intussen ook op heelparty visioene en verklarings afgekom wat vir ons 'n meer duideliker prentjie gee van belangrike gebeure wat nog moet plaasvind; lotsbepalende gebeurtenisse wat die Siener se profetiese toekoms vir ons ontsluit.

Die spoor van die Melody wat in 2009 deur seerowers aangeval is, word gevolg deur gevaarlike waters langs die Oos-Afrikaanse kus op tot die Suezkanaal waar bote deur oseane van woestynsand kortpad vat.

Op 'n reuse-lynskip word Valentynsdag met derduisende rose uit Perth gevier. Daar word ook op 'n veerbootjie na 'n eilandjie gevaar op 'n speurtog na een van Amerika se yslikste politieke skandale, en die kinders beleef waar die skrikmaakfkliek Jaws vandaan kom.

Die leser word verras met Japanse puntenerigheid, Russiese “strand-apartheid”, en die skrywer se eie Oceanos-storie. Onvergeetlike hawens word herbesoek: die hiperaktiewe New York, sierlike Sydney en Kotor waar Noorweegse fjords en die Middellandse See as 't ware ontmoet.

Nie net lang reise besorg vreugde nie. Sowat 60 000 mense vaar elke somerseisoen langs ons kuste. Die Van Deventers het dit met vyfjarige tweeling-kleinseuns gedoen -en elke minuut was 'n fees.

In December 2018, after fifty years of belly-laughs, energy and outrage, Billy Connolly announced his retirement from live stand-up comedy. It had been an extraordinary career. When he first started out in the late sixties, Billy played the banjo in the folk clubs of Scotland. Between songs, he would improvise a bit, telling anecdotes from the Clyde shipyard where he'd worked. In the process, he made all kinds of discoveries about what audiences found funny, from his own brilliant mimes to the power of speaking irreverently about politics or explicitly about sex. He began to understand the craft of great storytelling. Soon the songs became shorter and the monologues longer, and Billy quickly became recognised as one of the most exciting comedians of his generation.

A child of the Jamaican diaspora, Lenny Henry was one of seven children in a boisterous, complicated family. With honesty, tenderness and a glorious sense of humour, he conducts a jam session of memories - growing up in the Black Country, puberty, school, friendship, family secrets and unashamed racism. With his mother's mantra of 'H'integration' echoing in his ears, Henry set out on a glittering career - but at every stage wondering: Am I good enough? Is this what they want? Who am I, again? This book answers those questions.

When Robert McBride was sentenced to death, he shouted: 'The struggle continues till Babylon falls.' It was 1987: the time of 'total onslaught'. The trial of the MK unit that planted the Magoo bomb on Durban's beachfront dominated the news but few knew the real story of the brave young people who brought the armed struggle to Natal. This is the forgotten, thrilling tale of a young man's incredible sacrifice for the struggle, loyalty between friends, and falling in love across the race barrier.

Introduction by Deborah Lipstadt, author of Denial
July 15, 1942, Wednesday

Remember this day; remember it well. You will tell generations to come. Since 8 o'clock today we have been shut away in the ghetto. I live here now. The world is separated from me and I'm separated from the world.

Renia is a young girl who dreams of becoming a poet. But Renia is Jewish, she lives in Poland and the year is 1939. When Russia and Germany invade her country, Renia's world shatters. Separated from her mother, her life takes on a new urgency as she flees Przemysl to escape night bombing raids, observes the disappearances of other Jewish families and, finally, witnesses the creation of the ghetto.

But alongside the terror of war, there is also great beauty, as she begins to find her voice as a writer and falls in love for the first time. She and the boy she falls in love with, Zygmunt, share their first kiss a few hours before the Nazis reach her hometown. And it is Zygmunt who writes the final, heartbreaking entry in Renia's diary.

Recently rediscovered after seventy years, Renia's Diary is already being described as a classic of Holocaust literature. Written with a clarity and skill that is reminiscent of Anne Frank, it is an extraordinary testament to both the horrors of war, and to the life that can exist even in the darkest times.

In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, which is also the subject of the upcoming film Rocketman. The result is Me - the joyously funny, honest and moving story of the most enduringly successful singer/songwriter of all time.

Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with Buddy Holly glasses who grew up in the London suburb of Pinner and dreamed of becoming a pop star. By the age of twenty-three, he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in his bright yellow dungarees, a star-spangled T-shirt and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again.

His life has been full of drama, from the early rejection of his work with song-writing partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a chart-topping superstar; from half-heartedly trying to drown himself in his LA swimming pool to disco-dancing with the Queen; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury and George Michael to setting up his AIDS Foundation. All the while, Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for over a decade.

In Me Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you, by a living legend.

The inspiring, true story of a father and son's fight to stay together and to survive the Holocaust.

In 1939, Gustav Kleinmann, a Jewish upholsterer in Vienna, was seized by the Nazis. Along with his teenage son Fritz, he was sent to Buchenwald in Germany. There began an unimaginable ordeal that saw the pair beaten, starved and forced to build the very concentration camp they were held in.

When Gustav was set to be transferred to Auschwitz, a certain death sentence, Fritz refused to leave his side. Throughout the horrors they witnessed and the suffering they endured, there was one constant that kept them alive: the love between father and son.

Based on Gustav's secret diary and meticulous archive research, this book tells his and Fritz's story for the first time - a story of courage and survival unparalleled in the history of the Holocaust.
