Net vir volwassenes, bevat kru taal.

Van Satynlakens tot Teerstrate is die outobiografie van Liza Daniells wat eersdaags gepubliseer word. 'N klein dogtertjie wat van die ouderdom van 8 jaar, teen haar wil en onskuldig, vasgevang was in n hel van satanisme en seksuele mishandeling vir 26 jaar. Die verhaal vertel van haar onskuld, seer, vrees, drome, mislukking en oorwinning. Haar onbeskryflike, onskudbare geloof in haar Hero op sy forse spierwit arabierse perd. Haar ongenaakbare kinderlike geloof, want sy is tog maar steeds net daai klein wise-ass dogtertjie, wat op haar Hero se voete dans, al is sy in 'n grootmens lyf.

Die boek is beslis nie vir sensitiewe lesers nie. Ook nie vir die tannies wat Woensdae oggende vroue biduur hou en met n koppie tee oor en weer vertel van hoe perfek hul lewens en huwelike is nie. Dit is baie eksplisiet. Dit is rou en kru en opreg, dit is wat dit is, punt en klaar.

Die skryfstyl en taalgebruik is uniek. Die emosies en gebeure wat uitgebeeld word laat die leser in trane, saam lag, kwaad, jammer, dankbaar, skuldig, nederig en sommer net alles deurmekaar. Ek moes menigte male vir Liewe Jesus vra om my asseblief te vergewe. Die waarhede en openbarings wat in die boek weggesteek lê bring mens tot nuwe insigte en forseer jou om raak te sien, die dinge wat ons onsself so maklik teen blindstaar.

Ek is geen ekspert of professionele skrywer nie, maar ek weet wat ek beleef het en die verskil wat dit in my hart gemaak het vandat ek begin het tot en met ek daai manuskrip se laaste bladsy gelees het. Van begin tot einde was ek vasgenael; en dit was nie soos met enige fiksie of romanse nie. Ek het eerlikwaar geen kritiek om te lewer nie. - Magda Oosthuizen

Once, chef Brett Ladds was given a cigar by Fidel Castro, he talked weightlifting with Swazi king Mswati III and his cooking made Quincy Jones sing. For many years he also served Nelson Mandela many cups of rooibos tea and made him his favourite meals.
Ladds was the executive chef of the SA government and manager of the presidential guesthouse at Bryntirion Estate in Pretoria from 1994-1999 where he served both Mandela and Thabo Mbeki. It was a naive and star-struck 21-year-old Ladds who started working at the guesthouse in the months before the first democratic election. During this time he was always in the background when struggle stalwarts like Steve Tshwete, Joe Modise and Dullah Omar met Mandela to discuss the future of the country.
This heart-warming book tells of a young man's coming of age at a turning point in our history. His stories about meeting kings and queens, presidents, rock stars and even the pope are laced with his unique, self-deprecating sense of humor. Of Queen Elizabeth he says it felt like speaking to his gran. “I asked myself, how does all that power fit into this lovely, caring lady?” Of Robert Mugabe: “He never moaned about a thing.”
Then there are the Russian diplomats and their drinking habits and the Saudi-Arabian sheik who had 8 television sets installed in his room and bought 20 blankets at R5000 each for his stay.
It's a book to make you laugh and cry. And Madiba's favorite champagne? Pêche Royale . . .

Elsabe Steenberg was die suster van André P. Brink en self 'n gewilde en bekroonde Afrikaanse skrywer, veral bekend vir haar kinder- en jeugliteratuur. Sy het egter
ook, onder andere, kortverhale en dramas geskryf. Sy is met veelvuldige sklerose gediagnoseer, maar het ten spyte daarvan aangehou skryf.
Sy sou hierdie jaar haar 80ste verjaarsdag gevier het. Hierdie is 'n herdenkingsbundel.

Vir die uitsonderlike wyse waarop sy kinder- en jeugliteratuur in Suid-Afrika bevorder kry sy verskeie spesiale toekennings:
Die Potchefstroomse Stadsraad vereer haar in 1990 met 'n Gratia-toekenning,
Die Potchefstroomse Universiteit vir CHO gee in 1993 'n erkentlikheid-oorkonde aan haar
Die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns vereer haar met 'n besondere erepenning in 1993.

Hierdie is 'n versameling briewe wat Elsabe geskryf het aan Elizabeth Venter, die samesteller se vrou. Dit vertel die verhaal van die Steenberg-gesin oor meer as 30 jaar,
Elsabe se skryfwerk, haar werk as dosent in Potchefstroom- en haar uitmergelende siekte.

Die gevierde en bekroonde skryfster is in 1996 aan veelvuldige sklerose oorlede. Haar laaste brief aan Elizabeth is 'n maand vroeër geskryf.

Why don't white people understand that Converse tekkies are not just cool but a political statement to people of colour? Why is it that South Africans of colour don't really 'write what we like'? What's the deal with people pretending to be 'woke'? Is Islam really as anti-feminist as is claimed? What does it feel like to be a brown woman in a white media corporation? And what life lessons can we learn from Bollywood movies?

In Sorry, Not Sorry, Haji Mohamed Dawjee explores the often maddening experience of moving through post-Apartheid South Africa as a woman of colour. In characteristically candid style, Dawjee pulls no punches when examining the social landscape: from arguing why she'd rather deal with an open racist than some liberal white people, to drawing on her own experience to convince readers that joining a cult is never a good idea.

In the provocative voice that has made Dawjee one of our country's most talked-about columnists, she offers observations laced throughout with an acerbic wit. Sorry, Not Sorry will make readers laugh, wince, nod, introspect and argue.

'The book goes beyond being a narrative of forbidden love. It's a potent alchemy, a swirling together of matters that are the hallmark of serious literature: good and evil, sex, love, friendship, morality, happiness and suffering, heroes and villains... and, of course, the old South African chestnuts - race and identity.' - Fred Khumalo

The Love Diary of a Zulu Boy is by turns erotic, romantic, tragic and comic. Inspired by the real-life drama of a romance between a Zulu boy and an Englishwoman, the book consists of various interrelated short stories on interracial relationships in modern-day South Africa. As the author reflects on love across the colour line, it triggers memories of failed affairs and bizarre experiences: love spells, toxic masculinity, infidelity, sexually transmitted diseases, a phantom pregnancy, sexless relationships, threesomes and prostitution, to name but a few.

A unique book for the South African market, The Love Diary of a Zulu Boy is written with an honesty rarely encountered in autobiographical writing.

Wat gaan deur 'n koerantredakteur se kop as 'n woedende John Voster hom vroegoggend bel oor kritiese beriggewing? Hoe hanteer hy dit wanneer 'n kabinetminister een van sy verslaggewers met die vuiste wil bydam? Of as 'n groep regse belhamels 'n politieke nuushond teer en veer? Hoe kry 'n Afrikaanse koerant dit reg om tydens die apartheidsjare volledig oor ANC-beleidstandpunt te rapporteer sonder dat die veiligheidspolisie se sensors ingryp?
Herald Pakendorf beantwoord die vrae, en nog vele meer in sy herinneringstog deur 'n onstuimige tydperk van Suid- Afrika se geskiedenis. Die grootkoppe van apartheid kon hierdie 'liberale' redakteur van Oggenblad (1972-1979) en Die Vaderland (1980-1986) met moeite voor hulle oë verdra.

Springbokkaptein, predikant, filosoof, ambassadeur, kabinetsminister, wêreldreisiger, kunsliefhebber, gesinsman. Dit was en ís die wêreld van dr. Dawie de Villiers, een van Suid-Afrika se ikone wat sy land dekades lank op vele terreine met groot onderskeiding gedien het.
Hierdie boeiende lewensverhaal neem lesers op 'n merkwaardige lewenspad deur Suid-Afrika se sport- en politieke geskiedenis. De Villiers se jeugjare in 'n polities georiënteerde gesin, sy vinnige opgang vanuit sy geliefde Stellenbosch Rugbyklub tot in die Springbokspan, sy moeilike pad met sportbeserings en die soet en suur van Springbok-wees is maar enkele aspekte van dié lekkerlees-ervaring.

Hy vertel van sy betrokkenheid in die politiek as 'n ywerige waarnemer van onder andere die bekende filosoof, prof. Johan Degenaar; sy opwindende lewe as ambassadeur in Londen; as kabinetsminister onder P.W. Botha, F.W. de Klerk en Nelson Mandela; die Kodesa-onderhandelinge en die oorgang na demokrasie; en uiteindelik 'n reeks verrykende reise oor die wêreld as adjunk-sekretaris-generaal van die Verenigde Nasies se World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

My lewensreis is 'n belangrike bydrae om die rol te beskryf van Afrikanerleiers wat uit die rigiede denkskema van apartheid ontsnap het, wat vanweë morele oortuigings én hulle bevoegdhede 'n nuwe Suid-Afrika help skep het.

Met sy heel eerste verskyning op televisie as hoërskool-laaitie het Rian van Heerden reeds die volk die josie ingemaak. Sedertdien het hy dikwels
koerantvoorblaaie gehaal - en is telkens afgedank! - vir sy omstrede uitlatings. In dié boek skryf hy onbeskaamd oor al die goed wat mense meen hy eerder nié moes gesê het nie. Hy maak vir die eerste keer sy hart oop oor sy persoonlike lewe, sy worsteling met gaywees en sy eerste liefdesverhouding. Blatant eerlik, skreeusnaaks, aangrypend.

An inspiring story of one man's rise from poverty and oppression to success and fame in the international world of opera...

It is a difficult undertaking for any human to escape the cycle of poverty, but to do so from one of the world's most complex political systems, with a brutal history of segregation and deprivation, is nothing short of a miracle. Yet Musa Ngqungwana's story doesn't end there. Not only did he manage to extricate himself from his impoverished past, but he found his way to the great opera houses of the world, attaining immense success in an affluent art form that bears no resemblance to his upbringing or culture. Musa's life and career are proof that any human can overcome the devastating effects of discrimination and poverty.

Odyssey of an African Opera Singer chronicles Musa's journey from the townships of South Africa to the world stage. It is a story of hope, showing how humans, no matter their situation, have the opportunity to claim their gifts, develop them and use them to help others in need. A captivating story that will inspire anyone who has ever had a dream...

“Die lang man sonder skaduwee,” so het die oumense gepraat as hulle die grondpaaie beskryf het wat oor die rug van vlaktes loop soos linte wat plase en veeposte en dorpe aan mekaar bind. Dit was 'n raaisel wat hulle vir mekaar gevra het om 'n stram geselskap aan die gang te kry.

Met dié raaisel begin Antoinette Pienaar, Afrikaanse sangeres, aktrise en radiopersoonlikheid, haar nuwe boek ná die verskyning van Kruidjie roer my, haar boek oor Karookruie wat sy plek as 'n klassieke werk in Afrikaans ingeneem het. Sy werk reeds vir jare in die Karoo saam met oom Johannes Willemse, legendariese Griekwa-medisyneman. Oom Johannes leer haar hoe om Karookruie te gebruik om mense se lywe en siele te genees en van heinde en ver kom besoekers om hier by hulle gesond te kom raak.

In Die lang man sonder skaduwee sit Antoinette haar roeping as geneser voort. Vol begrip en deernis word Karookruie ingespan om allerlei kwale te genees. Maar nou ondersoek sy ook die genesende krag wat in die ou stories, raaisels en rympies van die Griekwa-mense skuil, want dikwels het 'n fisieke probleem 'n emosionele oorsprong en is dit stories wat die hart kan genees. Die langman sonder skaduwee is volksbesit: waardevolle inheemse kennis liefdevol opgeteken vir lees en herlees.

Professor Christiaan Barnard was the brilliant and sometimes enigmatic surgeon who performed the first heart transplant 50 years ago. At times his actions seemed impulsive and illogical, yet he had an uncanny ability to weigh up risk and reward - and come up trumps all too often.

His ground-breaking relationship with a young, unemployed backyard mechanic changed not only the course of transplant surgery, but also the life of Winston Wicomb, the darker brother of the more famous Randall. While Randall easily passed as 'white', Winston's colour presented a huge threat to the family who lived in fear of the Apartheid inspectors. So severe and real was the danger of his racial background being exposed, that Winston had to spend a considerable part of his youth behind his mother's wardrobe whenever strangers called.

Vital Remains traces young Winston's early years against the backdrop of Apartheid, abuse and rejection. Yet, despite the disadvantages he had to face, he refused to accept a live of submission to an unjust policy. He managed to obtain a BSc, but remained unemployed. Then, one day, his luck changed and he embraced an opportunity that would change the history of transplant surgery.

Vital Remains is the story of one man's journey through the minefield of Apartheid's heyday. It tells the story of hope, perseverance, dedication and even love. The message Winston wants to convey to the youth of today is a simple one: seek, strive and never, never give up. Amos van der Merwe considers this book his best yet and managed to tell Winston's story with a healthy mix of fact, humour and gravity.

In this new biography of Chris Barnard we not only learn about the life of South Africa's most famous surgeon, from his Beaufort West childhood through his studies locally and abroad to his prominent marriages - and divorces - but James Styan also examines the impact of the historic heart transplant on Barnard's personal life and South African society at large, where apartheid legislation often made the difficulties of medicine even more convoluted.
The role of black medical staff like Hamilton Naki is explored, as is the intense rivalry that arose between other famous heart surgeons and Barnard. How did Barnard manage to beat them all in this race of life and death? How much did his famous charisma have to do with it all? And in the light of his later years, his subsequent successes and considerable failures, what is Barnard's legacy today?

Styan covers it all in this fascinating new account of a real heartbreaker that coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first heart transplant.

Vir die vroue wat hy met sy rolprentsterglimlag betower het, was Chris Barnard 'n hartebreker. Vir sy pasiënte 'n harteheler.
Dié nuwe biografie oor Suid-Afrika se beroemdste hartsjirurg vertel nie net van Barnard se kinderjare in Beaufort-Wes, sy prominente huwelike (en egskeidings) en flambojante lewe nie. James Styan ondersoek ook die impak van die historiese eerste hartoorplanting op Barnard se persoonlike lewe en op die Suid-Afrikaanse gemeenskap oor die algemeen, waar apartheidswetgewing dikwels die probleme van geneeskunde nog ingewikkelder gemaak het. Die rol van swart mediese personeel soos Hamilton Naki word bespreek, sowel as die intense wedywering wat tussen ander beroemde hartsjirurge en Barnard ontstaan het.
Hoe het Barnard dit reggekry om hulle almal in dié resies om lewe en dood te wen? Hoeveel het sy welbekende sjarme daarmee te doen gehad? En wat is Barnard se nalatenskap vandag, in die lig van sy latere suksesse en aansienlike mislukkings? Styan dek dit alles in dié fassinerende nuwe blik op Chris Barnard.
