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 definitive biography of one of the most famous and influential artists the world has ever seen A GUARDIAN, OBSERVER, AND DAZED MAGAZINE 'BOOK TO LOOK FORWARD TO' IN 2020 'Superb...Gopnik persuasively assembles his case over the course of this mesmerising book, which is as much art history and philosophy as it is biography' Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian When critics attacked Andy Warhol's Marilyn paintings as shallow, the Pop artist was happy to present himself as shallower still: He claimed that he silkscreened to avoid the hard work of painting, although he was actually a meticulous workaholic; in interviews he presented himself as a silly naif when in private he was the canniest of sophisticates. Blake Gopnik's definitive biography digs deep into the contradictions and radical genius that led Andy Warhol to revolutionise our cultural world. Based on years of archival research and on interviews with hundreds of Warhol's surviving friends, lovers and enemies, Warhol traces the artist's path from his origins as the impoverished son of Eastern European immigrants in 1930s Pittsburgh, through his early success as a commercial illustrator and his groundbreaking pivot into fine art, to the society portraiture and popular celebrity of the '70s and '80s, as he reflected and responded to the changing dynamics of commerce and culture. Warhol sought out all the most glamorous figures of his times - Susan Sontag, Mick Jagger, the Barons de Rothschild - despite being burdened with an almost crippling shyness. Behind the public glitter of the artist's Factory, with its superstars, drag queens and socialites, there was a man who lived with his mother for much of his life and guarded the privacy of his home. He overcame the vicious homophobia of his youth to become a symbol of gay achievement, while always seeking the pleasures of traditional romance and coupledom. (Warhol explodes the myth of his asexuality.) Filled with new insights into the artist's work and personality, Warhol asks: Was he a joke or a genius, a radical or a social climber? As Warhol himself would have answered: Yes.

A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making-from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy
In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency-a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation's highest office.

Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune's Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden.

A Promised Land is extraordinarily intimate and introspective-the story of one man's bet with history, the faith of a community organizer tested on the world stage. Obama is candid about the balancing act of running for office as a Black American, bearing the expectations of a generation buoyed by messages of 'hope and change,' and meeting the moral challenges of high-stakes decisionmaking. He is frank about the forces that opposed him at home and abroad, open about how living in the White House affected his wife and daughters, and unafraid to reveal self-doubt and disappointment. Yet he never wavers from his belief that inside the great, ongoing American experiment, progress is always possible.

This beautifully written and powerful book captures Barack Obama's conviction that democracy is not a gift from on high but something founded on empathy and common understanding and built together, day by day.

Obie encompasses a decades-long sweep of his life's work and covers the globe. It is part coffee-table book, part travelogue, part autobiography and part storybook, with a bit of philosophy thrown in for good measure. It's a great photographer, documenter and character looking back through his ever-increasing archive (built up over 60 years) and choosing the images that resonate the most, and which have a story to tell. Obie captures the rare, the human, the wonderful, the cosmic even. And he doesn't just take pictures; he also meticulously records it all in words. His descriptions are often as intriguing, as beautiful or as crazy as his photographs.

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States.

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America - the first African-American to serve in that role - she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.

Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Hierdie biografie stel die leser bekend aan Malan die mens: die skaam, leesgierige jong seun, die afgetrokke intellektueel wat een keer by die huis uit is nog met sy pantoffels aan, die onseker vryer en die denker wat ure geneem het om toesprake vir kerkdienste en later politieke toesprake voor te berei. Hoe kon 'n man wat opreg daarna gestrewe het om sy volk te verenig en te beskerm ook bygedra het tot 'n politieke bestel waarvan ons vandag steeds die gevolge dra? Met sestig foto's.

A fierce, strikingly redemptive exploration of the impact of traumatic violence on victim, perpetrator and society

One Omaha winter day in 1978, when Debora Harding was just fourteen, she was abducted at knife-point, thrown into a van, assaulted, held for ransom, and left to die.

But what if this wasn't the most traumatic, defining event in her childhood?

Undertaking a radical project, Debora Harding dexterously shifts between the past and present to unravel her story. From the immediate aftermath to the possibility of restorative justice twenty years later, Dancing with the Octopus lays bare the social and political forces that act upon us after the experience of serious crime. A vivid, sly and intimate portrait of one family's disintegration, this is a darkly humorous and ground-breaking narrative of reckoning and recovery.

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."

Die volle, grootliks onvertelde verhaal van Emily Hobhouse, nie net 'n Anglo-Boereoorlogheld nie, maar ook 'n aktivis en stryder teen onreg en onderdrukking op verskeie kontinente.

Elsabé Brits het Emily se handgeskrewe notas, dagboeke en plakboeke in 'n trommel in Kanada gevind, en haal hieruit en uit ander nuwe bronne aan. Só gee sy 'n genuanseerde, vars blik op 'n buitengewone vrou wat voortdurend in die spervuur was.

Van kleintyd het Emily haar verset teen haar lot. Vir vroue was daar min geleenthede en sy moes boonop haar siek pa oppas. Tog raak sy wêreldwyd betrokke by die stryd teen onreg en oorlog. In twee oorloë het sy duisende lewens gered, en tog is sy - 'n ware patriot - in haar eie land onbekend en alleen dood.

As kampvegter vir vrouestemreg en in haar uitgesproke teenkanting teen onreg is Emily Hobhouse 'n ikoon wat vandag nog inspireer. Ontdek die onbekende sy van 'n verbasend moderne vrou in hierdie volkleur pragboek.

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.

At the age of 87 Dirk Mudge now publishes his long-awaited autobiography. This remarkable man was involved full time in the politics of South West Africa, and later Namibia, for a period of 33 years. He entered the political arena in 1960 as a member of the Legislative Assembly of the National Party of South West Africa. Mudge describes how he initally supported the ideologies of the national Party, but gradually came to change his views and politics. This inevitably lead to his resignation from the National Party and to the establishment of his own party: The Pepublican Party. He had a personal involvement in the drawing up of the new Constitution of the Republic of Namiba and tries to give answers to questions about why it took Namibia so long to reach independance. He also explains the role South Africa and the international community played in this major event.

Says Dr Piet Croucamp in his preface: 'Mudge's memoir does not relive the past in times of modernity. The reader becomes displaced - in a way - to a familiar but awkward if not painful past. The narrative, conceived in stigma and shame, is presented with a 'respectability' or even bizarre 'reality' which once was 'normal' to some and an abomination to others. Dirk Mudge has made a remarkable contribution with a text which merits both literary and scholarly value. The work was not intended as a comprehensive history of Namibia - it is a memoir about the life and times of Dirk Mudge.'
