Brent Meersman's memoir of a humble yet eccentric upbringing in a Milnerton, Cape Town, flat in the 1970's and 1980's reads as a stirring eulogy to his schizophrenic mother, yet also as a vivid snapshot in time.

His adoring mother, a horse-loving artist, received only rudimentary treatment and Brent, his brother and father had to look to each other for support. His father battled alcoholism and unemployment, at one point taking the whole family to Belgium, where he had found work, only for them to return a year later, defeated.

Traversing a home environment constantly on high alert for something to go wrong, waiting for his mother's fragile mental stability to shatter, not finding support in his father, whose drinking and absences from home took a punishing toll on the family, bred in the author an almost heroic resilience.

This delicate yet brutal memoir, filled with wry humour, will resonate with many readers.

A deeply moving and powerful biography of Fezekile Kuzwayo - better known as Khwezi - the woman the ANC tried to forget.
In August 2016, following the announcement of the results of South Africa's heated municipal election, four courageous young women interrupted Jacob Zuma's victory address, bearing placards asking us to 'Remember Khwezi'. Before being dragged away by security guards, their powerful message had hit home and the public was reminded of the tragic events of 2006, when Zuma was on trial for the rape of Fezekile Ntsukela Kuzwayo, better known as Khwezi. In the aftermath of the trial, which saw Zuma acquitted, Khwezi was vilified by his many supporters and forced to take refuge outside of South Africa.

Ten years later, just two months after this protest had put Khwezi's struggle back into the minds and hearts of South Africans, Khwezi passed away … But not before she had slipped back into South Africa and started work with Redi Tlhabi on a book about her life. How as a young girl living in ANC camps in exile she was raped by the very men who were supposed to protect her; how as an adult she was driven once again into exile, suffering not only at the hands of Zuma's devotees but under the harsh eye of the media.

In sensitive and considered prose, journalist Redi Tlhabi breathes life into a woman for so long forced to live in the shadows. In giving agency back to Khwezi, Tlhabi is able to focus a broader lens on the sexual abuse that abounded during the 'struggle' years, abuse which continues to plague women and children in South Africa today.

Hierdie publikasie is die sesde in 'n reeks deur die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns wat hulde bring aan literêre kunstenaars wat met die Akademie se Hertzogprys bekroon is en wat oor dekades Afrikaans en die Afrikaanse letterkunde met hulle werk verryk het. Hoewel die Hertzogprys met sy meer as 'n eeu lange tradisie binne die bestel van literêre pryse nie die hoogste in geldwaarde is nie, het die verwerwing daarvan 'n besonderse prestigewaarde en is dit vandag 'n vlagskipprys in die Suid-Afrikaanse literêre wêreld. Die reeks sluit publikasies oor Adam Small, P.G .du Plessis, Pieter Fourie, Breyten Breytenbach en andere in.
Reza de Wet: Die dramaturg as dromer bestaan uit twee dele. In Deel I word 'n persoonlike blik op haar lewe en werk gegee deur herinneringe gedeel deur haar Afrikaanse uitgewer (Marietjie Coetsee), haar jarelange regisseur (Marthinus Basson), asook verskeie ander kollegas binne die teaterindustrie. In Deel II dra sewe nuwe akademiese hoofstukke by tot die bestaande korpus navorsing oor een van ons land se belangrikste dramaturge van die 21ste eeu.

Silence sides with abuse. Every harrowing story needs to be told.

On a hot summer evening in 1967, seven-year-old Claudine Brown watched from the back seat of a car stalled on a railway track in the suburbs of Cape Town, as a fast-moving train hurtled towards them. Her mother sat frozen with fear in the driver's seat.
The events leading up to this moment were unremarkable, giving no clue to their catastrophic timing. The aftermath was brutal and childhood wrecking, leaving Claudine and her younger sister Lisa world-weary before they had even got started.
When her mother, unravelled by post-traumatic shock, abandoned the family, and her father reached for the nearest comfort to ease his pain - a new wife - Claudine had only one defence against the years of exploitation and physical, emotional and sexual abuse that followed: hope.
She remembered what normal life was, and plotted her course back there.

“The best view of your future is often the one looking back.”

During the Second World War two Jewish sisters - Janny and Lien Brilleslijper - run one of the largest hideaways in The Netherlands: The High Nest, a villa in The Gooi area. While the last remaining Jews are being hunted in The Netherlands, the lives of dozens of hideaways kept going for better or for worse, right under the noses of their National Socialist neighbours. Eventually, the nest is exposed and the Brilleslijper family put on one of the last transports to Auschwitz, along with the (Anne) Frank family. Roxane's novelistic eye combined with her rigorous research result in a hugely compelling portrayal of courage, treason and human resilience. THE HIGH NEST is a truly unforgettable book. After Roxane and her family moved into The High Nest in 2012 she spent six years writing and piecing together its story. Fundamental elements of Roxane's research into The High Nest are the personal, unpublished memoirs Janny Brilleslijper wrote for their close friends and family members. Roxane gained access to historic interviews with Janny, Lien, Eberhard and others, as well as many personal conversations with Janny and Lien's children. The book will contain many photographs from the Brilleslijper family archive.

Daar is ʼn swaarkry in ons land waarvan min die werklike omvang verstaan … veral diegene wat knus deur stede omvou word …

Maar reis jy net ʼn paar uur in amper enige rigting van hierdie stede waar water in jou naaste kraan is en jou middagete gerieflik op die naaste winkelrak wag, is dit soos ʼn ander wêreld … die verwoestende droogte wat mens en dier op hulle knieë het … stukkend, gebreek, letterlik sterwend, onmenslike verhale van verliese, sterwende diere en boere wat opgee, oppak en wonder of dit die moeite werd is om nog te lewe …

Maar, hier vind jy ook verhale van hoop … mense wat in ʼn gebroke wêreld opnuut uitreik na mekaar, konvooie voer wat aangery word van dele wat wel goeie reëns gehad het, iemand wat R10 afknyp om ʼn droogtehulpfonds te ondersteun - want vele tien rande maak dat daar brandstof is vir ʼn vragmotor om ʼn vrag geskenkte voer weg te neem. Verhale van droogte binne dié droogte … van siektes en seer en vashou aan Hoop ver bo menseverstand …

Dit is hierdie verhale wat Anoeschka gaan haal het op haar reis van Calvinia na Gamoep, tot amper by die Botswana grens oor Vanderbijlpark, Bultfontein om na Jansenville en Aberdeen en oorvertel word in Net voor die droogte my breek. Hierdie stories van hoop wat aan ander mense wat hulself ook in ʼn “droogte” bevind, hoop sal bring.

Net voor die droogte my breek is 'n inspirerende boodskap uit die hart en mond van mense wat te midde van swaarkry met verwagting vorentoe beur.

This is also a story about abuses of power, the role female friendships play in cults, and how sometimes the search to be 'better' can override everything else.

Shortlisted for the 2017 Cross Sports Book Awards Best Biography of the Year Bryant is one of basketball's greatest-ever players, a fascinating and complicated character who says he knew when he was a boy that he would be better than Michael Jordan. Aloof and uncompromising, Bryant is the grand enigma of American professional basketball, easily the most driven player in the history of the sport, the absolute master of study and preparation. But his career has also been one of almost constant conflict: with his teammate Shaquille O'Neal; with Phil Jackson, coach of the championship-winning Lakers team that Kobe led; with the law; with his wife Vanessa; and with so many of his contemporaries, opponents and teammates. Comprehensive and unflinching, Showboat unravels the conundrum that is Kobe Bryant.

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.

“Bedazzled by a cloud of thick smoke and thousands of bright electric sparks, I instinctively knew I had to get as far away as possible from the immediate danger... I could hear the strange humming sound of high voltage. A sound I had heard before, walking past an electric installation. The sound, at that moment in time, made no sense to me. My eyes desperately searched the vicinity of the boat, hoping to find my brother and friends...” The triumphant true life story written by Braam Louw, following double limb amputations in an accident in 1984 that grasped the attention of the public and the media, is carefully portrayed in this autobiography that will touch the heart and soul of the reader.

Die spoor van die Melody wat in 2009 deur seerowers aangeval is, word gevolg deur gevaarlike waters langs die Oos-Afrikaanse kus op tot die Suezkanaal waar bote deur oseane van woestynsand kortpad vat.

Op 'n reuse-lynskip word Valentynsdag met derduisende rose uit Perth gevier. Daar word ook op 'n veerbootjie na 'n eilandjie gevaar op 'n speurtog na een van Amerika se yslikste politieke skandale, en die kinders beleef waar die skrikmaakfkliek Jaws vandaan kom.

Die leser word verras met Japanse puntenerigheid, Russiese “strand-apartheid”, en die skrywer se eie Oceanos-storie. Onvergeetlike hawens word herbesoek: die hiperaktiewe New York, sierlike Sydney en Kotor waar Noorweegse fjords en die Middellandse See as 't ware ontmoet.

Nie net lang reise besorg vreugde nie. Sowat 60 000 mense vaar elke somerseisoen langs ons kuste. Die Van Deventers het dit met vyfjarige tweeling-kleinseuns gedoen -en elke minuut was 'n fees.

Ben Trovato's writing has been described as “the literary equivalent of sex with a clown.” In his latest book, the author derives an almost unseemly amount of pleasure from satirising the foibles and fantasies of our political fabulists. In this collection of wit and venom, he goes further than poking the bears of bureaucracy or lampooning the low-hanging fruitcakes of our world. Frequently turning the gaze on himself, Trovato doesn't always like what he finds. From marital failures to travel disasters, from medical emergencies to breaking the law, Trovato bravely and often stupidly goes where many fear to tread. With an itchy trigger-finger and sights set permanently on roam, Trovato guns for the power-crazed despots, the bankers and the wankers, and all who try to run and ruin our lives. Sometimes he misses and kicks the underdog by mistake, but that's life for you. He also writes about gardening and cooking, but not in a good way.
