When Doctor Thomas Browne accepts the role of both inquisitor and witness in one of England's last witch trials, he embarks on what his biographer later calls 'the most culpable and stupid action of his life'.

In Bury St Edmonds, 1662, two widows are charged with acts of witchcraft. Doctor Browne is known as a philosopher, natural scientist, logician and medical doctor, yet despite his best efforts, the trial hinges on the admissibility of 'spectral evidence': the accused women are deemed to have the ability to exploit their victims through dreams. This will set a legal precedent for the infamous Salem witch trials in Massachusetts thirty years later.

Conflicted by his deeply held religious beliefs and his confidence in the validity of emerging scientific methods, Browne is left to ponder the true nature of culpability - and whether the most insidious evil is, in fact, that which we carry within.

Mark Winkler's novel is a wry and insightful glimpse into the limits of reason, the patriarchal need to control every aspect of womanhood, and our ongoing preoccupation with reputation.

A letter bearing news of boyhood friend Karl Udengaard's death sets Maximilian Fritz on a path of disconcerting reminiscences on his last day as editor of a community newspaper.

Growing up as the son of a petrol-station owner in a Lowveld town, twelve-year-old Max is bashed around and bullied - until the arrival of Karl Udengaard. Karl teaches Max how to toughen up, while Max's feelings for Gunna Udengaard, Karl's enigmatic mother, rage in secret.

Tragedy severs Max's ties with the wealthy Udengaards. As the decades-old memories unravel, he begins to comprehend his own complicity in his and their misfortunes.

Due South of Copenhagen is a masterful tale of the scope of intimate connections between people, small-town living during the height of South Africa's Border War, and what it takes to put the past to rest.

When novelist Charlie Wasserman's wife Sascha divorces him, he finds a box of letters among the belongings his investment-banker wife did not care to remove when she signed over their house and asked never to be contacted by him again.

Written between 1940 and 1944, the letters expose a love affair between Sascha's grandfather, Theo, a forty-something lawyer, and Flora, a much younger journalist. The letters spark an idea for a novel, even though Sascha had, via her lawyers, asked Charlie to destroy them. All the while the story of Theo and Flora's lives unfurls, always against the backdrop of the 1940s and what it meant for Jewish people across the world.

Theo & Flora is a delight to read: skilfully constructed, fluidly written, witty and entertaining, with, at the same time, a poignant undertow of sorrow and loss. The writer has a keen eye for detail and a droll way with language, creating a novel that is often laugh-out-loud funny, yet the humour is rooted in a humane, compassionate conception of character that deepens and complicates it.

After his father's violent death on a hot November day in the droughtstricken Free State, a young man leaves the derelict family farm with no plan, and with no way of knowing that his life will soon be changed for ever by two strangers he encounters on his journey south: a mute little girl who bears a striking resemblance to his late niece, and a troubled lawyer who detests the Cape wine estate she's inherited from a father she despised.

Set in South Africa against the backdrop of a country in flux, The Safest Place You Know is a powerful story, rendered in meticulously crafted, lyrical prose, about redemption and recovery, and what it means to carry the past with you.

Chris Hayes is a Capetonian architect about to turn 40. He's built up a lucrative firm and provides well for his wife, Tracy, and their sixteen-year-old only son, Gabriel. But on the morning of New Year's Eve, Chris wakes up to persistent scratching in the roof of his Southern Suburbs house, as squirrels chew into the roof-beams. That squeaking and thumping sets off a year of changes: Chris's adoptive mother has gone senile, Gabriel is a tightly locked secret, even after Chris removes his bedroom door at the hinges, and Tracy is never home and becomes ever leaner through gym and plastic surgery. Chris's partner is on at him to sell a portion of the business in order to cash in on BEE deals, when he's not bugging Chris about joining his family for Friday night Sabbath dinner, and Chris wants . . . well, what does Chris want? An Exceptionally Simple Theory (of Absolutely Everything) is about Bishopscourt, botox, and braaivleis, and about being adopted. It's about Range Rovers, luxury game lodges and friends you've known forever. It's a book about growing older, maybe growing up, and how a man finds what he really needs if he has everything he ever thought he wanted.
