With the Karen meme taking over the internet, two real-life Karens offer thoughts on how and when to be a Karen, and how and when to shut up.
The Karen Book of Rules covers any sticky situation South Africans may find themselves in, with do's and don'ts for everything from braais, WhatsApp groups and Zoom calls to the navigating the queue at Woolies. A tongue-in-cheek etiquette guide that will make you laugh out loud.

Op 29 April 1963 stuur die 29-jarige digter Ingrid Jonker 'n telegram aan André P. Brink. Sy bedank die 27-jarige skrywer vir blomme en 'n brief wat hy aan haar besorg het. In die meer as tweehonderd skrywes wat hierna tussen die twee volg, ontvou sekerlik die bekendste liefdesverhouding in die Afrikaanse literêre geskiedenis. Jonker se finale brief aan Brink is gedateer 18 April 1965 - drie maande voordat sy die see in loop by Drieankerbaai. Daar word slegs 1000 van die spesiale genommerde uitgawe in Afrikaans gedruk.

Dié weergawe word in 'n boekkoker met bykomende visuele materiaal uitgegee, met 'n kunswerk van Hanneke Benadé op die omslag.
Die boek sluit onbekende foto's uit André P. Brink se private versameling in, met 'n ekstra fotoseksie wat nie in die standaarduitgawe verskyn nie, onder meer onbekende persoonlike foto's van Ingrid Jonker.
Dit bevat 'n replika van 'n volledige brief van Ingrid Jonker in 'n koevert as insetsel.
Die briewe verskaf nuwe insigte in die skryfwerk en liefdesverhouding van twee van die bekendste skrywers in Suid-Afrika.

The letters writer André Brink and poet Ingrid Jonker wrote to one another during their love affair in the early 1960s will be published by Umuzi in November.
Brink, who died on 6 February 2015, was working on a novel titled Goudstof at the time of his death. He offered the correspondence between him and Jonker to Umuzi for publication three months before his death.
Jonker's original letters, together with copies of the letters Brink addressed to her, were kept in brown envelopes in the author's study for over fifty years. Among the documents are telegrams and early versions of Jonker's poems. The documents will in future be made available to researchers.
Literary critic and widow of André Brink, Karina Brink, arranged the letters in chronological order before scanning them, after which they were typed up by Erika Viljoen, a friend and former student of the author.
Book historian and editor of the journal LitNet Akademies (Geesteswetenskappe) Francis Galloway proofread the typed documents against the original texts and provided contextual support for the Umuzi publication.
The letters will not be edited or annotated.
Leon de Kock - author, academic and award-winning translator - is responsible for translating Brink's letters into English, while journalist and poet Karin Schimke, a past winner of the Ingrid Jonker Prize for poetry, translated Jonker's letters.
The publication includes an introduction by Willie Burger, professor of literature at the University of Pretoria.
Reprint rights for material protected by copyright were granted by Karina Brink and Greg Marsh on behalf of the Ingrid Jonker Trust respectively. Author royalties for the publication will be divided equally between Brink's estate and the Ingrid Jonker Trust.

Sagteband Uitgawe.
Die briewe wat die ontslape skrywer André P Brink en die digter Ingrid Jonker aan mekaar geskryf het toe hulle in die vroeë sestigerjare 'n liefdesverhouding gehad het.
Met Vlam in die sneeu, en Flame in the Snow in Engels, kry lesers 'n intieme blik op een van die mees bekende en onstuimige liefdesverhoudings in die Suid-Afrikaanse skrywersgeskiedenis. Die briewe onthul nie net hul troetelname en die dinge waaroor hul gedroom en gestry het nie, maar ook hul onderskeie gemoedstoestande tydens hul verhouding wat drie maande voor Jonker se selfmoord tot 'n einde gekom het.
Brink het kort voor sy sterfte die briewe aan Umuzi voorgelê vir publikasie. Die projek is onlangs hervat deur sy letterkundige weduwee Karina M Szczurek met hulp van Leon de Kock, Karin Schimke en Francis Galloway.
