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.

When word got out that Tiffany Jenkins was withdrawing from opiates on the floor of a jail cell, people in her town were shocked. Not because of the twenty felonies she'd committed, or the nature of her crimes, or even that she'd been captain of the high school cheerleading squad just a few years earlier, but because her boyfriend was a Deputy Sherriff, and his friends—their friends—were the ones who'd arrested her.

A raw and twisty page-turning memoir that reads like fiction, High Achiever spans Tiffany's life as an active opioid addict, her 120 days in a Florida jail where every officer despised what she'd done to their brother in blue, and her eventual recovery. With heart-racing urgency and unflinching honesty, Jenkins takes you inside the grips of addiction and the desperate decisions it breeds. She is a born storyteller who lived an incredible story, from blackmail by an ex-boyfriend to a soul-shattering deal with a drug dealer, and her telling brims with suspense and unexpected wit. But the true surprise is her path to recovery. Tiffany breaks through the stigma and silence to offer hope and inspiration to anyone battling the disease—whether it's a loved one or themselves.

In her much anticipated memoir, Sisonke Msimang writes about her exile childhood in Zambia and Kenya, young adulthood and college years in North America, and returning to South Africa in the euphoric 1990s. She reflects candidly on her discontent and disappointment with present-day South Africa but also on her experiences of family, romance, and motherhood, with the novelist's talent for character and pathos.
Militant young comrades dance off the pages of the 1970s Lusaka she invokes, and the heady and naive days of just-democratic South Africa in the 1990s are as vividly painted. Her memoir is at heart a chronicle of a coming-of-age, and while well-known South African political figures appear in these pages, it is an intimate story, a testament to family bonds and sisterhood.

Sisonke Msimang is one of the most assured and celebrated voices commenting on the South African present - often humorously; sometimes deeply movingly - and this book launches her to an even broader audience.

Born in that order, they were the Mitford sisters: Nancy, Pamela, Diana, Unity, Jessica and Deborah. The eldest was a razor-sharp novelist of upper-class manners; the second was loved by John Betjeman; the third was a fascist who married Oswald Mosley; the fourth idolized Hitler and shot herself in the head when Britain declared war on Germany; the fifth was a member of the American Communist Party; the sixth became Duchess of Devonshire. Born into country-house privilege, they became prominent as 'bright young things' in the high society of interwar London. Then, as the shadows crept over 1930s Europe, the stark - and very public - differences in their outlooks came to symbolise the political polarities of a dangerous decade.

'n Epiese reis in 'n klein seiljag van Frankryk tot aan die Namakwalandse kus gedurende die Tweede Wêreldoorlog, sabotasiepogings en planne om Eerste Minister Jan Smuts in 'n sluipmoord om die lewe te bring . . . In die vroeë 1940's is die Suid-Afrikaanse publiek aangegryp deur die uitdagende optrede van die Olimpiese bokser en swaargewigkampioen Robey Leibbrandt. Hy was dodelik gekant teen Suid-Afrika se deelname aan die oorlog. Sy ekstremisme, opvlieëndheid en onverdraagsaamheid was tipies van 'n politieke fanatikus.

Leibbrandt het 'n aanhanger van Nasionaal-Sosialisme geword toe hy in 1936 vir Suid-Afrika in Berlyn aan die Olimpiese Spele gaan deelneem het. Hy was besig met opleiding in Europa toe die oorlog uitbreek. Die Duitse militêre intelligensiediens het hom kort daarna gewerf om sabotasieopleiding te ontvang.
Die Duitsers het Leibbrandt teruggestuur na Suid-Afrika as deel van Operasie Weissdorn. Sy missie? Om die militante deel van die Afrikaner-opposisie te werf en met hulle hulp skeeps- en haweinstallasies, asook nywerhede, te vernietig, en om oproer in die Uniemagte te stook.

Dit was nie lank nie of die polisie was op Leibbrandt se spoor en hy is ná een van die grootste polisiesoektogte in hegtenis geneem.
Sy hoogverraadsaak in 1943 en 1944 het hoofopskrifte gehaal.
Dié biografie werp nuwe lig op hierdie enigmatiese historiese figuur en wat sy fanatisme aangevuur het.

Toe die legendariese Suiker Britz homself in 2018 om die lewe gebring het, het die einde van 'n era aangebreek - 'n tydvak waarin ouskool-polisiemanne se reputasie gebou was op ongelooflike suksesse in die bekamping van misdaad. In sy luisterryke loopbaan as polisieman en speurder, en as hoof van die Suid-Afrikaanse Polisie se Moord en Roof-eenheid, was Britz as ondersoeker betrokke by misdade wat die samelewing tot in sy fondamente geskud het. In die land se oorgangstydperk na demokrasie het hy, in opdrag van verskeie kommissies van ondersoek, duisterhede help opklaar rondom polities-geïnspireerde moorde.

In hierdie boek probeer die skrywers 'n beeld van die man agter die legende kry deur die soeklig op sake waarby hy betrokke was, te laat val. En die beeld wat na vore kom is dié van 'n passievolle speurder wat uitsonderlike prestasies in sy loopbaan behaal het, maar hy was ook 'n gewone mens met unieke tekortkominge. Britz het dikwels onder fel kritiek deurgeloop oor die manier waarop polities sensitiewe sake hanteer is.

Lesers wat maklik ontstel word deur grafiese materiaal, moet daarop bedag wees dat die sake wat in hierdie boek gedek word, dikwels grusaam en angswekkend is. Om egter 'n profiel van 'n man in Suiker Britz se liga saam te stel, is dit onvermydelik dat die donkerste uithoeke van die menslike psige verken moet word.

Everyone knows Jackie Chan. Whether it's from Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon, The Karate Kid, or Kung Fu Panda, Jackie is admired by generations of moviegoers for his acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, and mind-bending stunts. In 2016-after fifty-six years in the industry, over 200 films, and many broken bones-he received an honorary Academy Award for his lifetime achievement in film. But at 64 years-old, Jackie is just getting started. Now, in Never Grow Up, the global superstar reflects on his early life, including his childhood years at the China Drama Academy (in which he was enrolled at the age of six), his big breaks (and setbacks) in Hong Kong and Hollywood, his numerous brushes with death (both on and off film sets), and his life as a husband and father (which has been, admittedly and regrettably, imperfect). Jackie has never shied away from his mistakes. Since The Young Master in 1980, Jackie's films have ended with a bloopers reel in which he stumbles over his lines, misses his mark, or crashes to the ground in a stunt gone south. In Never Grow Up, Jackie applies the same spirit of openness to his life, proving time and time again why he's beloved the world over: he's honest, funny, kind, brave beyond reckoning and-after all this time-still young at heart.
