Putco Mafani, from humble beginnings in Bhofolo in the Eastern Cape, has become a household name in South Africa. From Radio Ciskei, he went to Umhlobo Wenene FM where he anchored the biggest breakfast show in the country. The former Kaizer Chiefs PRO and sought­after marketing consultant will soon be launching his own radio station.
Things have not always been smooth sailing for Putco. In this memoir, he writes about the hurdles he has had to overcome. He has been detained in solitary confinement, endured a traumatic divorce, and found himself unemployed at one stage. He openly talks about some of the mistakes he made as a young person and also shares his successes and moments of fame and what these taught him.

With contributions from a wide range of people who know and admire Putco, as well as take­home lessons called Putco's Padkos, this book tells an inspirational, authentically South African story.

Introduction by Deborah E. 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, Renia's Diary also includes a prologue and epilogue by Renia's sister Elizabeth, as well as an introduction by Deborah E. Lipstadt, author of Denial. It is an extraordinary testament to both the horrors of war, and to the life that can exist even in the darkest times.

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.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER & TELEGRAPH BOOKS OF THE YEAR
While we wait for cricket to return to our screens and stadiums, get to know England's most-loved batsman, Alastair Cook

'He is England's greatest ever batsman . . . a hugely enjoyable book' Daily Mail, SPORTS BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Watch. The. Ball. It's just you. Standing at the crease. Waiting. The bowler is running. His arm swinging. The ball - 155 grams of cork, string and leather - is hurled at you. At 90 mph it travels 22 yards in under half a second. You can barely see it and you've got to be swinging your bat before it's halfway towards you. Because you are in its path . . .
Alastair Cook, one of England's most decorated players and highest test run-scorer, knows what it is like to be your best under pressure. Yet at 33 he called time on his England career. Come with him as he relives the fraught hours on the pitch, the desperate lows and astonishing highs, the paralysing anxiety that can send the best back home and the extraordinary battle of wills with yourself, the opposing players and even those supposedly on your own side. This is cricket as you've never seen it. The view from the inside . . .
LONGLISTED FOR THE TELEGRAPH SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR AUTOBIOGRAPHY AWARD 'Fascinating, timely. Delves into the psychological challenges of the game' Guardian 'Bracingly honest' Times

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.'
