In this intimate and extraordinary memoir, Ziauddin Yousafzai, the father of Malala, gives a moving account of fatherhood and his lifelong fight for equality - proving there are many faces of feminism.

'Whenever anybody has asked me how Malala became who she is, I have often used the phrase. `Ask me not what I did but what I did not do. I did not clip her wings''

For over twenty years, Ziauddin Yousafzai has been fighting for equality - first for Malala, his daughter - and then for all girls throughout the world living in patriarchal societies. Taught as a young boy in Pakistan to believe that he was inherently better than his sisters, Ziauddin rebelled against inequality at a young age. And when he had a daughter himself he vowed that Malala would have an education, something usually only given to boys, and he founded a school that Malala could attend.

Then in 2012, Malala was shot for standing up to the Taliban by continuing to go to her father's school, and Ziauddin almost lost the very person for whom his fight for equality began.

Let Her Fly is Ziauddin's journey from a stammering boy growing up in a tiny village high in the mountains of Pakistan, through to being an activist for equality and the father of the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and now one of the most influential and inspiring young women on the planet.

Told through intimate portraits of each of Ziauddin's closest relationships - as a son to a traditional father; as a father to Malala and her brothers, educated and growing up in the West; as a husband to a wife finally learning to read and write; as a brother to five sisters still living in the patriarchy - Let Her Fly looks at what it means to love, to have courage and fight for what is inherently right. Personal in its detail and universal in its themes, this landmark book shows why we must all keep fighting for the rights of girls and women everywhere.

Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet just a few years after the end of Apartheid she would become a most trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela, growing to respect and cherish the man she had been taught was the enemy.

Good Morning, Mr Mandela tells the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life, beliefs, prejudices and everything she once believed in utterly transformed by the greatest man of her time. It is the incredible journey of an awkward, terrified young typist in her twenties later chosen to become the President's most loyal and devoted servants, spending most of her adult working life travelling with, supporting and caring for the man she would come to call 'Khulu', or 'grandfather'.

Here Zelda pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as she knew him, a teacher who gave her the most valuable lessons of her life. A man who refused to defined by his past, who forgave and respected all, but who was also frank, teasing and direct. As he renewed his country, he also freed Zelda from a closed world of fear and mistrust, giving her life true meaning. Now she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world.

This is a book about love and second chances. It will touch your life and make you believe that every one of us, no matter who are or what we have done, has the power to change.

Once in a while a publisher receives a book submission that makes them sit back in their chair, read out loud what is in front of them and laugh at the pure joy the writing and imagery evoke. This was the case with the first three short stories author Yusuf Daniels submitted to Jacana Media.

They were instantly recognizable. They were funny as hell. The nostalgia, triggered by the mere mention of a sight, sound or smell, instantly transported the reader to a time and place that spoke to Coloured culture and lived experiences on the Cape Flats and surrounding townships. There was something magical about the way Daniels recollected his memories from his childhood in those first three stories, which he had also posted on Facebook, eliciting a slew of likes, shared experiences and feedback from his followers to “write more” and “do you remember, Yussie …”.

Living Coloured (because Black and White were Already Taken) is a compilation of short stories that is an ode to an era all Cape Coloured people will instantly recognise - from the nightclubbing at Space Odyssey and the shenanigans at the Mitchells Plain public swimming pool, to the traditions of delectable food exchanges during Ramadan among Muslims and Christians, alike. This book truly is a tribute to all that the Coloured community holds dear and sings of the spirit which helped them eek out an existence on the dusty flat plains of the Cape.

But as you read story after story, you will also be confronted with the blatant racism that was the Group Areas Act, the legacy of a people removed and dumped in this windswept place that wasn't of their own making, and the constant forging ahead to make life worthwhile under very harsh political and economic circumstances. The stories will also leave you seething with anger at the sheer brutality of what this community had to endure (and still do), while their black counterparts in the township next door lived even harsher realities.

**WINNER of the 2019 PEN Ackerley Prize** 'A major literary talent . . . speaks about the power and powerlessness that young women are subject to in a wholly fresh, clear-eyed way . . . you'll find it hard to come away from The Terrible without a stab of recognition in your chest' Stylist 'You may not run away from the thing that you are because it comes and comes and comes as sure as you breathe.' This is the story of Yrsa Daley-Ward, and all the things that happened - 'even the Terrible Things (and God, there were Terrible Things)'. It's about her childhood in the north-west of England with her beautiful, careworn mother and her little brother who sees things written in the stars. It's also about growing up and discovering the power and fear of sexuality, about pitch grey days of pills and powder: going under, losing yourself, and finding your voice. 'Yrsa's work is like holding the truth in your hands' Florence Welch

Die aangrypende ware verhaal van ontvoeringslagoffers Yolande en Pierre Korkie.

558 dae van hel. Twee siele verenig in liggaam en gees. Een almagtige God. Dit is die verhaal van Yolande en Pierre Korkie, wat deur Al Qaeda ontvoer is, soos vertel deur Yolande. Pierre het dit nie oorleef nie.

In hierdie roerende verhaal herleef Yolande die paartjie se ontvoering en gewelddadige skeiding van hulle kinders en die lewe soos hulle dit geken het. In 558 dae deel Yolande alles wat sy tydens hierdie afskuwelike tydperk ervaar het; van die oomblik wat hulle ontvoer is, haar vrylating en uiteindelik die mislukte reddingspoging om Pierre te bevry.

Dit is 'n ware verhaal van 'n tipe liefde wat min paartjies ooit sal ervaar, van geloof wat sterker word deur lyding en van vergifnis wat kragtiger is as menslike grense. Dit is die storie van 558 dae.

16 bladsye volkleur-foto's uit Yolande se persoonlike album, inskrywings uit Pierre se joernaal terwyl hy in aanhouding was en 'n roerende laaste brief van Yolande aan Pierre is in die boek ingesluit.

Ook beskikbaar in Engels onder die titel 558 Days

Oor die Outeur

Yolande Korkie, die weduwee van Pierre Korkie, is in die VSA gebore, maar het op Suid-Afrikaanse bodem grootgeword. Voor hulle vertrek na Jemen het die egpaar en hulle twee kinders, Pieter-Ben en Lize-Mari, in die sonskyn van Sentraal-Suid-Afrika gewoon, gewerk, studeer en gebly. Yolande het 'n meestersgraad in Sielkunde en 'n diploma in Pastorale Berading. As huweliksmaat het sy die veelsydige Pierre in elke onderneming bygestaan en haar volledig met sy roeping as mentor in Jemen vereenselwig. Daar het sy die taal geleer deur onderwys, hulpverleningswerk en perdryklasse. Sy en die kinders woon tans in Bloemfontein, waar sy as dosent betrokke is by die Universiteit van die Vrystaat.

Maretha Maartens het Yolande in die daarstelling van 558 Days bygestaan en die boek in Afrikaans vertaal. Sy is die skrywer van ongeveer 160 boeke, waarvan verskeie plaaslik en internasionaal bekroon is. Sy was dosent in Didaktiek, Opvoedingsfilosofie en Engels voordat sy in die ondersteunende rol van leraarsvrou en voltydse nering as skrywer ingestap het.

A gripping true story of supreme love, absolute forgiveness and an unwavering faith in the Almighty God.

558 days of hell. Two souls united in body and spirit. One Almighty God. This is the story of Yolande and Pierre Korkie, who were kidnapped by Al Qaeda, as told by Yolande. Pierre never survived to tell the tale.

In this touching story, Yolande relives the couple's kidnapping and brutal severance from their children and life as they knew it. From the moment they were kidnapped until Yolande's release and then through to Pierre's tragic death during a failed rescue attempt, 558 Days recounts the Korkies' horrific ordeal.

This is the true story of a level of love that few couples will ever experience; of faith that grows stronger through adversity and of forgiveness that is more powerful than human boundaries. This is the story of 558 Days.

Also included are 16 pages of full-colour photos from Yolande's personal photo album, excerpts from Pierre's personal journals written while in captivity and a moving letter written by Yolande to Pierre after his death.

Also available in Afrikaans under the title 558 Dae

Forty years after Steve Biko's tragic death, this, his first comprehensive biography, is republished in an updated anniversary edition. As leading anti-apartheid activist and thinker, Biko created Black Consciousness, which has particular resonance again today. His death by torture, at the hands of the police, robbed South Africa of one of its most gifted leaders. Biko's intellectual legacy cannot be overestimated, and his braod appeal was again witnessed in the recent student protest in South Africa where his name appeared on many a poster. Chapters include:'¢ Biko's childhood in Ginsberg; his father's early death and his relationship with his brother '¢ Lovedale College, discovering politics - and expulsion '¢ Biko's student years in Durban, his disillusion with white left politics and dalliances with women '¢ SASO and Black Consciousness, new thinking on old problems - moving towards radicalism '¢ The awkward issues of gender and sexism, Biko's wife Ntsiki and his relationship with Mamphela Ramphele '¢ Biko's impact on the student uprising of June 1976 '¢ The King William's Town years: Starting a health project and defying banning orders.

On a freezing winter's night, a few hours before dawn on 12 May 1969, security police stormed the Soweto home of Winnie Mandela and detained her in the presence of her two young daughters, then aged nine and ten.

Rounded up in a group of other anti-apartheid activists under Section 6 of the Terrorism Act, designed for the security police to hold and interrogate people for as long as they wanted, she was taken away. She had no idea where they were taking her or what would happen to her children. For Winnie Mandela this was the start of a 491-day period of detention and two trials.

Forty-one years after Winnie's release on 14 September 1970, Greta Soggot, the widow of David Soggot, one of Winnie Mandela's advocates during the 1969-70 trials, handed her a stack of papers that included a journal and notes that she had written in detention. Their arrival brought back vivid and horrifying memories and uncovered a unique and personal slice of South Africa's history.

491 Days: Prisoner Number 1323/69 shares with the world Winnie Mandela's moving and compelling journal as well as some of the letters written between affected parties at the time, including Winnie and Nelson Mandela, who by then had been in prison for nearly seven years.

Readers gain insight into the brutality she experienced, her depths of despair as well as her resilience and defiance under extreme pressure. This young wife and mother emerged after 491 days in detention unbowed and determined to continue the struggle for freedom.

Kotzé loop met hierdie bundel herinneringe op sy kinderspore terug na die dorre noorde en sy mense, 'n lieflinghond wat in die duinestrate agterbly, 'n verharde pa, ontbering en uiteindelik: liefde.

Ons sien nie springbokke onder in die straat wei nie, ook nie swart karakoele wat in die blinkaargras loop nie want daar is niks. Net die droogte se spore op die rooi sand.

'Dit moet pragtig wees as die strate vol wuiwende gras staan en die duine groen is,' sê Alice.
