Charles Dickens was a superb public performer, a great orator and one of the most famous of the Eminent Victorians. Slight of build, with a frenzied, hyper-energetic personality, Dickens looked much older than his fifty-eight years when he died—an occasion marked by a crowded funeral at Westminster Abbey, despite his waking wishes for a small affair. Experiencing the worst and best of life during the Victorian Age, Dickens was not merely the conduit through whom some of the most beloved characters in literature came into the world. He was one of them.
Filled with the twists, pathos, and unusual characters that sprang from this novelist's extraordinary imagination, The Mystery of Charles Dickens looks back from the legendary writer's death to recall the key events in his life. In doing so, he seeks to understand Dickens' creative genius and enduring popularity. Following his life from cradle to grave, it becomes clear that Dickens's fiction drew from his life—a fact he acknowledged. Like Oliver Twist, Dickens suffered a wretched childhood, then grew up to become not only a respectable gentleman but an artist of prodigious popularity. Dickens knew firsthand the poverty and pain his characters endured, including the scandal of a failed marriage.
Going beyond standard narrative biography, A. N. Wilson brilliantly revisits the wellspring of Dickens's vast and wild imagination, to reveal at long last why his novels captured the hearts of nineteenth-century readers—and why they continue to resonate today.
The Mystery of Charles Dickens is illustrated with 30 black-and-white images.

Koos Prinsloo, wat in 1994 in die ouderdom van 37 jaar oorlede is, kan met reg as 'n James Dean van die Afrikaanse letterkunde beskou word: 'n ikoniese figuur wat te vinnig, te gevaarlik geleef en te vroeg gesterf het. Byna drie dekades ná die verskyning van sy eerste bundel en vyftien jaar ná sy dood, eggo sy stem steeds oor die grense van sy tyd en oeuvre heen - en dis in hierdie weerklank wat die toneelstuk Prinsloo versus gestalte vind.
Prinsloo versus is nie 'n elegie aan Koos nie, maar die postmoderne vergestalting van 'n persoonlike tragedie, uitgespeel op private en openbare; persoonlike en artistieke slagvelde. Dis 'n veelvlakkige collage oor 'n kunstenaar wie se lewe en werk kwalik met 'n suikerlagie bedek kon word; wat gerebelleer het teen 'n patriargale kultuur en 'n diep weersin in alle vorme van outoriteit getoon het.
Soos 'n briefskrywer in die Burger van 24 Oktober 2003 op die eerste vertoning van die stuk gereageer het: 'Ek kon nie anders as om te dink dat Koos, waar hy ook al is, met 'n sardoniese glimlaggie sit en kyk na dié stuk nie.'

OOR DIE OUTEUR
Adriaan Meyer se Prinsloo Versus is by 2004 se Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees met 'n Jong Kanna vir Beste Prestasie in Studenteteater bekroon. Hy het 'n honneursgraad in Drama van die Universiteit van Stellenbosch en het reeds meer as twaalf verhoogproduksies op sy kerfstok.

Byna drie dekades het verloop sedert ek die pad met die Boereprofeet en sy visioene in 1990 begin stap het. Dit was van meet af 'n taai, opdraande stryd; maar dit was ook 'n heilsame pad, 'n pad besaai met wonderwerke. Want dit wat ek op daardie pad beleef het, is vir my net so 'n groot gebeurtenis as wat die ontdekking van die visioene self was. En op die pad het heelwat van ons volksgenote menige dag 'n hand uitgesteek om dit vir my gelyk te maak. U sal hulle in die loop van die verhaal ontmoet.
Omdat ek my nog voortdurend met Siener se gesigte besig hou, het ek intussen ook op heelparty visioene en verklarings afgekom wat vir ons 'n meer duideliker prentjie gee van belangrike gebeure wat nog moet plaasvind; lotsbepalende gebeurtenisse wat die Siener se profetiese toekoms vir ons ontsluit.

Die publikasie van Boodskapper van God 20 jaar gelede was nie net die eerste volledige biografie van die bekende Boereprofeet (Siener van Rensburg) nie, maar ook 'n versameling van al sy beskikbare gesigte in een band. Sedertdien het die visioene van Siener van Rensburg sy volksgenote geroep, gelei en gedra deur 'n baie moeilike tyd in ons geskiedenis. Maar nou staan hulle daar waar hy gesê het 'dit sal so donker wees dat ek nie my hand voor my oë kan sien nie.'

Gebeure wat hy in sy visioene gesien het, word nou eers bewaarheid, soos die instroming van swartes uit Afrika hierheen en na Europa; 'n konflik wat al 'n jaar lank in Rusland woed en in 'n burgeroorlog kan ontwikkel; die verslegting van die wêreldekonomiese toestand; aanhoudende kragonderbrekings in Suid-Afrika; munisipaliteite wat al byna almal bankrot is; droogtes en hongersnood wat voorlê; onteiening van grond; die media wat ons in die duister hou oor belangrike plaaslike en wêreldgebeure; stakings; Siener se woorde 'kyk na die parlement, want daar gaan ons dinge begin,' en laastens sy profesie dat "niks in die kerk meer reg sal wees nie."

Sy visioene staan in die lig van die volle waarheid, dis 'n openbaring van verborge skakeringe van volkslyding, smart, vernedering, verraad, sonde, maar uiteindelik 'n godsvreugde van genade en vryheid wanneer 'n grootse wonderwerk gebeur.

Charles Fryer, skryf in Insig van Junie 1993: "Dis die onvergeetlike verhaal van een van die merkwaardigste persoonlikhede in ons geskiedenis. 'n Boek wat die Boereprofeet teruggee aan sy volk."

Nicolaas (Seer) van Rensburg was a modern day Nostradamus. He became a legend during his lifetime and was one of the most remarkable and controversial charcters who ever lived in South Africa. Van Rensburg not only foretold the future of South Africa, but also that of England, Europe, America, Japan and Russia. He predicted World War 3 after the turn of the century. It is a chilling experience to read about his predictions of 'terrible electric rays' (laser beams) that will sow death and destruction and soak the earth in blood. He describes the events on the battlefields of the world in such detail as though he himself had been an eye-witness. Here are some of the prophecies he made from 1899 until his death in 1926:
* Outbreak of the Anglo-Boer War and that South Africa will lose that war
* The First World War, the 'Flu epidemic and the Second World War
* Dr. H.F. Verword, former Prime Minister, will be murdered
* The nuclear disaster at Chernobyl on April 26 1986
* The divorce and murder of an English noble woman in a 'car accident' and who would be mourned by the whole world
The release of Nelson Mandela by ex-President FW de Klerk
* South Africa will be governed by a black government
Japan's destruction by earthquakes, and that
* England will be struck by seven terrible plagues when World War 3 is at hand

The astounding prophecies in this book are of great importance, not only to South Africans, but also to the people of the Western world.

Nuwe, hersiene en uitgebreide uitgawe.
Nicolaas van Rensburg herbevestig hom nie net as godsman en profeet nie, maar hy gee as 't ware ook vir ons 'n ooggetuie verslag van die onmiddellike en toekomstige gebeure wat besig is om in Suid-Afrika en in die res van die wêreld af te speel:
• Verdeeldheid en skeuring in die ANC.
• Swart op swart geweld.
• Wêreldwye chaos en opstande, gevolg deur 'n depressie.
• Begin van die 3de Wêreldoorlog, en
• Ons laaste vryheidstryd.
Vir Siener se nasate (die 'getroue Afrikaners') is daar egter ook goeie nuus. Die einde van hulle onderlinge twis en verdeeldheid is in sig, en die begin van die Derde Republiek lê om die draai. Die boek verstrek ook antwoorde op vrae soos, waarom is daar so 'n noue verbintenis tussen die Duitse volk en die Boere? Gaan die Kaapse skiereiland afskeur en onder die see verdwyn? Wat gaan die impak wees as daar iets drasties by Koeberg skeefloop? En, wanneer gaan klaas weer baas word?
Siener - Blaas die Basuin, sal u soms aangryp, soms ontroer, soms verbyster, maar aan die einde met vreugde en blydskap laat — 'n boek wat gelees móét word.

Ahmed Kathrada's autobiography is a moving, touching and often amusing read about a man who not only observed, but also actively participated in the shaping of a country's history.

Born a shopkeeper's son in the rural town of Schweizer-Reneke, he became the trusted confidante of some of the most prominent political figures in South Africa's struggle history, among them Nelson Mandela and Walter Sisulu. Politically active at the age of 10, and joining the Young Communists' League at 14, Kathrada - or 'Kathy', as friends and family affectionately called him - devoted his life to the freedom struggle in South Africa.

Persecuted, driven underground and sentenced to life imprisonment at the Rivonia Trial, Kathrada spent 18 years on Robben Island, where he grew close to both Mandela and Sisulu, whom he regarded as a second father.

On the island, in his tiny garden patch, Kathrada buried the original draft of Mandela's autobiography, until such time it could be smuggled to London. Having lived side by side with men who shaped the history of this country and assumed positions of power, Kathrada himself remained humble.

Eventually released from prison after 26 years, he eschewed a cabinet post, instead opting to oversee the Robben Island Museum project.

In this title, truly a collection of memoirs, he affords us rare glimpses into his and other activists' lives during the struggle and imprisonment, and sketches poignant cameos of those who would become South Africa's post-apartheid leaders.

The Windsor Diaries are the never-before-seen diaries of Alathea Fitzalan Howard, who lived alongside the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret at Windsor Castle during the Second World War. Alathea's home life was an unhappy one. Her parents had separated and so during the war she was sent to live with her grandfather, Viscount Fitzalan of Derwent, at Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park. There Alathea found the affection and harmony she craved as she became a close friend of the two princesses, visiting them often at Windsor Castle, enjoying parties, balls, cinema evenings, picnics and celebrations with the Royal Family and other members of the Court. Alathea's diary became her constant companion during these years as day by day she recorded every intimate detail of life with the young Princesses, often with their governess Crawfie, or with the King and Queen. Written from the ages of sixteen to twenty-two, she captures the tight-knit, happy bonds between the Royal Family, as well as the aspirations and anxieties, sometimes extreme, of her own teenage mind. These unique diaries give us a bird's eye view of Royal wartime life with all of Alathea's honest, yet affectionate judgments and observations - as well as a candid and vivid portrait of the young Princess Elizabeth, known to Alathea as 'Lilibet', a warm, self-contained girl, already falling for her handsome prince Philip, and facing her ultimate destiny: the Crown.

'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.

Frederik van Zyl Slabbert was a man on a mission, whether as an academic, opposition politician, democratic facilitator or businessman. When he famously led a delegation of leading Afrikaners to Dakar in 1987 to meet the exiled ANC, many saw it as a breakthrough moment, while others felt he had been taken in. And yet his reputation - for honesty, integrity, wit and courage - still towers above many of his contemporaries.
An academic turned politician, Slabbert brought unusual intellectual rigour to Parliament, transforming the upstart Progressive Federal Party into a force that could challenge the National Party. Disillusioned by South African society, he resigned in 1986 to explore democratic alternatives. Sidelined during the democratic transition, he continued to pursue a broad range of initiatives aimed at building democracy, empowering black South Africans and transforming the economy.

Grundlingh offers insights into this most unlikely politician, providing new perspectives on a figure who even today remains an enigma.
