If you could read only one book about Cape Town - to truly understand it, to glimpse its soul - which would it be?
An unflinching portrayal of an enigmatic metropolis drawing on Trotter's experiences with prostitutes, sailors, minstrels, professors, pupils, gangsters, politicians, and 'poo-throwing' protestors.
An incisive mix of travel narrative, literary non-fiction, and personal memoir, this book reveals the often hidden contradictory realities of Cape Town, a place between two oceans, between first and third worlds, between east and west. The majority of its citizens: a people between black and white, native and settler, African and European.
How can we understand a city that is most assuredly in Africa, though not—seemingly—of it?
By exploring this city's tween-ness, we can begin to understand the soul of this town—haunted by its past, unsure of its future.
A short book just over 100 pages, it allows readers to quickly identify the unique pulse of the city, its throbbing historical, social, cultural and political beat that underlies the transactions between all Capetonians.
This is not a substitute for a traditional guidebook, but a perfect companion to one, filling in the intimate details that other books leave out.

Cape Town: A Place Between is the first of the Intimate Geographies series. It provides just the right amount of insight for locals and visitors to understand the deeper meanings of their experiences in the Mother City. Each title in the Intimate Geographies Series provides a personal, idiosyncratic, in-depth portrayal of a place, filtered through the experiences of an individual who has lived there, knows it, understands it, has a powerful relationship with it. Future volumes will feature other intense portrayals of compelling off-beat cities around the globe.

Despite being South Africa's capital city, Pretoria has often played a supporting role to bold and brash Johannesburg and Cape Town's cosmopolitan charms. However, when it comes to architectural heritage, the Jacaranda City is well-endowed. From the skyline-dominating Union Buildings and Voortrekker Monument to the imposing edifices of its administrative precincts, Pretoria might be deserving of a second moniker: the city of sandstone, brick and granite. But when you look beyond the impressive façades, soaring columns and linear planes of buildings that were intended to convey power and authority, you'll find light-filled interiors embellished with decorative touches that are only hinted at from the outside.

Murals, mosaics, domes, galleries, stained-glass windows, gleaming brass and impressive woodwork are often hidden from view behind doors that are closed to the public. And even those museums, buildings and places of worship that are open to all have architectural and design features that are easily overlooked. The history of the city, and of the country, has been played out in many of the buildings featured in Hidden Pretoria.

This book captures remnants of our diverse heritage so that a new generation might recognise the need to embrace the past in order to build our shared future.

Weinig mense spit diep in hulle spaargeld in, sluit hulle huis en klim vir drie maande van afsondering op 'n kanaalboot in die verre Engeland. Op hul eie. Sonder ervaring. Sonder 'n bootliksens. Sonder die voorwete dat alles goed sal afloop. Annelie en die ou gryse het besluit om die kanaalpad te vat en reg in die snerpende winter in te vaar. Om te toets wat hulle ná vier-en-veertig jaar van saamwees in mekaar oorhet. Om te besin oor die roete van die allerlaaste vyftien sterkerige jare wat dálk voorlê. Om herinneringe te vergaar vir die stil dae op die ouetehuisstoep. En om mekaar vergifnis te gee vir sovele sondes.

Min sou hulle kon voorsien dat die reis van hosannas ook 'n reis van tappende ontberings en rasperende emosies sou wees. En dat hulle meer as een maal die boot wou verlaat en die kinders bel om hulle te kom haal. Maar tot op die een-en-neëntigste dag het hulle vasgehou aan die idille. En aan mekaar.

When 80-year old Julia Albu calls into her favourite radio show with a zany, half-baked idea, she has no idea that it will lead her to the adventure of a lifetime. With her trusty 20-year-old old Toyota Conquest, Tracy, a giant map and unbounded enthusiasm, Julia sets off on the long drive through Africa and into the UK where she hopes to meet the Queen of England. Beginning in South Africa, she travels through deserts, over mountains and across grassy plains. All along the way, she is accompanied by family and friends. She stays in hotels and hovels, breakfasts with a giraffe and hangs out with baboons, and meets a host of colourful characters who all can't help but be drawn to the charming, white-haired octogenarian in their midst.

HE BOOK BEHIND THE HIT CHANNEL 5 DOCUMENTARY
A glimpse of life inside the world's most secretive country, as told by Britain's best-loved travel writer.

In May 2018, former Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter Michael Palin spent two weeks in the notoriously secretive Democratic People's Republic of Korea, a cut-off land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside has barely moved beyond a centuries-old peasant economy but where the cities have gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground train stations. His resulting documentary for Channel 5 was widely acclaimed.

Now he shares his day-by-day diary of his visit, in which he describes not only what he saw - and his fleeting views of what the authorities didn't want him to see - but recounts the conversations he had with the country's inhabitants, talks candidly about his encounters with officialdom, and records his musings about a land wholly unlike any other he has ever visited - one that inspires fascination and fear in equal measure.

Written with Palin's trademark warmth and wit, and illustrated with beautiful colour photographs throughout, the journal offers a rare insight into the North Korea behind the headlines.

Less than 200 km north of Pretoria, the majestic Waterberg plateau rises behind formidable ramparts that have long discouraged travellers and settlers. Reputedly used by President Kruger as a conveniently remote place to exile troublesome burghers, this rugged and scenic upland remained unknown to most South Africans until its development as an exclusive eco-tourism and hunting destination in the last 25 years. Despite (perhaps because of) its prolonged isolation and sparse population from the earliest times, the Waterberg has experienced a long and vibrant history. Yet until now, this is a history that has never been recounted in comprehensive, factual detail.

Waterberg Echoes tells the stories of the remarkable people who first settled the plateau and its surrounds and their tribulations from disease, agriculture and governmental neglect. It describes conflicts during the difeqane, the South African War and the 1914 rebellion; the stories of mines in the lowlands surrounding the plateau and the arrival of Herero refugees from Namibia in 1906; the spread of religions and education across the region; and the role of politics.

In 2018, kort op die hakke van sy topverkoper-memoires oor die Spaanse Camino, Elders, en die kykNET-reeks Elders: Die Camino, skiet Erns Grundling en 'n klein TV-span 'n nuwe reeks - dié keer in Japan, die land waar die Rugbywêreldbeker in 2019 en die Olimpiese Spele in 2020 plaasvind.

Sushi en shosholoza is Erns se verslag oor hierdie reis. Tussen pelgrimstogte soos die Kumano Kodo, die Camino se sustersroete, die uitklim van Mount Fuji en onderhoude met SA rugbyspelers (en sendelinge) in Japan - ook met Dan Carter én Jake White - kry lesers nes in Elders terugflitse na Erns se jeug. Van 'n laaitie wat OP se wedstryde op die ou Boet Erasmus-stadion ademloos volg tot vandag se Erns wat in sy Brave Blossoms-trui stomgeslaan sit en kyk hoe Japan nou éintlik 'n rugbywedstryd hanteer. (Wenk: Dis nie Loftus dié nie!) Hy vier ook Halloween in Osaka, drink groentee in Kyoto en raak stil in Hiroshima se Vredespark.

Kom stap nog 'n slag saam met Erns, dié keer op die plek waar talle Suid-Afrikaners in 2019 die Bokke gaan ondersteun. Konnichiwa, Japan!

For fly-fishermen everywhere, the news of an upcoming book from Tom Sutcliffe is as exciting as a ten-pound wild rainbow on a 4X tippet? Yet More Sweet Days certainly lives up to the weight of expectation from his many fans, locally and internationally.

It races upstream in leaps and bounds, taking you to places you?ve always wanted to fish: you?ll wade the high mountain rivers of the Eastern Cape, clamber along the boulder-strewn crystal streams of the Western Cape, throw a dainty dry on hallowed English chalkstreams, and fight fresh-run salmon in rugged Iceland with a volcano belching ash behind your casting shoulder.

You?ll pick up tips and ideas (almost without realising it) from a master trout fisherman who has done more for the beautiful sport in South Africa than anyone, ever. Along the way you?ll soak yourself warmly in a philosophy that embraces fish and birds, people and animals ? a philosophy honed by thousands of kilometres of stalking up streams and countless cups of coffee brewed on a stove perched on the tailgate of his fishing truck.

Complemented by many original artworks from the author, this beautiful book is at once a rumination, a reflection and a profound escape for fly fishermen everywhere; when you?re not actually casting at trout, this is the next best thing. [credit: Paul Curtis]
