The third collection of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC and Channel 5 series All Creatures Great and Small. This omnibus edition comprises of Vets Might Fly and Vet in a Spin. Training as an RAF pilot in the smoke and bustle of London is a far cry from James Herriot's day job as a country vet in the Yorkshire Dales. And while he is keen to serve Queen and country, James cannot help but miss his life in Darrowby - despite frequent arguments between his colleagues, bad-tempered cattle and equally irritable farmers, and the continuing saga of Cedric the flatulent dog. But most of all he misses his wife Helen; pregnant with their first child. The question is constantly hanging over him - will he be going to war? And when will he get to go home? Since they were first published, James Herriot's memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, All Things Wise and Wonderful is a heart-warming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain's best-loved authors.

Ingrid Jonker - A Poet's Life is the first comprehensive biography of this South African poet to be published in English. It is a unique biography in the sense that it is not an author's interpretation of a life. All available facts surrounding the life and early death of the young poet are proffered without personal comment. In this way it is left to the reader to assimilate the material, which results in an emotional experience and finally a personal view.
The book is richly illustrated, with more than 140 photographs - several of which have not been published before - many of Jonker's poems, replicas of handwritten letters, memories of family and friends and the extracts from the writings of well-known authors.

'Mabegzo's place in my life is an uncomfortable space. The hypocrisy of my feelings for him has mauled my emotions for many years. I would think of him and my heart would swell with warmth, longing and regret and, immediately, disgust at myself for feeling this way. This would be followed by making excuses for myself: I was a little girl, I did not know, I was mourning my father and perhaps responded to the first male who showed me any kindness and warmth.'

When Redi Tlhabi is eleven years old, two years after her father's death, she meets the handsome, charming and smooth, Mabegzo. A rumoured gangster, murderer and rapist, he is a veritable 'jack-roller' of the neighbourhood. Against her family's wishes, she develops a strong connection to him. Redi herself doesn't understand why she is drawn to Mabegzo and why, at eleven, she feels a brokenness that only Mabegzo can fix.

'Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional'
A compelling mediation on the power of running and a fascinating insight into the life of this internationally bestselling writer.

In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he'd completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and on his writing.

Equal parts travelogue, training log and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon and settings ranging from Tokyo's Jingu Gaien gardens, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston.

By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, this is a must-read for fans of this masterful yet private writer as well as for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in distance running.

As the Mangaung Conference draws closer, many people have been asking the question, who is Kgalema Motlanthe - what is his background, and what does he stand for?

Ebrahim Harvey presents a superb account of a man characterised by his reticence. Harvey provides a rare and thorough insight into this most private and yet among the most powerful of men in South Africa. We learn about Motlanthe's ancestral family and political awakenings as he discovers the ANC. From here we come to understand the importance of his time on Robben Island and the friendships and alliances he formed there, which would later define his political career.

'Well told, personable, fast-paced, and undoubtedly a fascinating read' Daily Telegraph Gripping, moving and wildly exhilarating, Mud, Sweat and Tears is a must-read for adrenalin junkies and armchair adventurers alike. Bear Grylls is a man who has always sought the ultimate in adventure. Growing up on the Isle of Wight, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age. As a teenager he found identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts, which led the young adventurer to the foothills of the mighty Himalaya and a grandmaster's karate training camp in Japan. On returning home, he embarked upon the notoriously gruelling selection course for the British Special Forces to join 21 SAS - a journey that was to push him to the very limits of physical and mental endurance. Then, in a horrific free-fall parachuting accident, Bear broke his back in three places. It was touch and go whether he would ever walk again. However, only eighteen months later Bear became one of the youngest ever climbers to scale Everest, aged only twenty-three. But this was just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures . . . Known and admired by millions, Bear Grylls has survived where few would dare to go. Readers are calling Mud, Sweat and Tears: 'Extraordinary' 'Inspirational' 'Heart pounding' 'Awe-inspiring' 'A breath of fresh air' 'Thrilling' 'Courageous'

'He felt a compulsion to remember as much as he could, to make a good yarn out of the story trying to burst out. Khalil tried to contain it, to bottle it up, to close the lid on it, but it kept bubbling up, trying valiantly to get itself told...'
Ashraf Kagee, winner of the seventh annual European Union Literary Award, evokes the richly-textured beauty of everyday life of the last century's Cape Malay and Indian cultures, and deftly captures the lyrical resonance of voices long forgotten by history.
Khalil, 'the Companion', is given his name by The One Above at his birth in 1903. Despite evidence of this divine interest, Khalil's eighty-odd years of life remain fairly ordinary - even though many of these years are spent under the far from ordinary conditions of The System in South Africa.

For many years an atheist, C. S. Lewis vividly describes the spiritual quest that convinced him of the truth and reality of Christianity, in his famous autobiography. 'In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.' Thus Lewis describes memorably the crisis of his conversion. 'Surprised by Joy' reveals both that crisis and its momentous conclusion that would determine the shape of Lewis's entire life.

This is the powerful and moving life story of one of South Africa's leading trade union activists, from her childhood in Sophiatown to her first marriage and divorce, the dark days of her six months in detention and her lasting contributions to labour organisation in South Africa. Strikes have followed me all my life was first published in 1989 by The women's press but was never available in South Africa. Emma Mashinini's autobiography is an accessible, engaging account of a self-effacing union organiser, gender-rights activist and a phenomenal woman who has lived a difficult life and endured many challenges: detention without trial for six months (most of which were spent in solitary confinement); losing two daughters and a son-in-law; health problems as a result of detention; and constant abuse at the hands of apartheid's enforcers. But Emma's story is one of courage. It is engaging, at times sad (there is a heart-breaking moment in the text when she forgets her daughter's name while in solitary confinement), but mostly it is an inspirational account of a selfless individual. This edition includes a Foreword by Jay Naidoo that brings the reader up to date with Emma's life and opinions and the state of the labour movement in South Africa as well as moving letters from Mashinini's family that were written to her on her 80th birthday. This is a classic South African memoir in the same vein as Ellen Kuzwayo's call me woman, which recalls and preserves vital accounts of South Africa's history.

'Ek kan ook sommer dadelik my kop op 'n blok sit om almal te verseker dat daar net die mooi en edele dinge van die lewe hier gaan verskyn, anders as die dinge wat onse Steve Hofmeyr op sy blog kwytraak, want die enigste lelike woord wat ek ken, is ghwano - en nou dat ek dit gesê het, voel ek amper ek moet my mond met seepsoda gaan uitwas.'
Kop op 'n blok is 'n versameling blogs van die ewig jeugdige Philip de Vos. Dit is vlot geskryf en die humor (wat dikwels selfspot insluit) is werklik snaaks. Inderwaarheid vorm hierdie stukke 'n soort outobiografie van een van die mees geliefde skrywers in Afrikaans. Die bundel bevat ook anekdotiese sketse oor bekende figure uit die kunstewêreld, soos die sangeres Cecilia Wessels, die aktrise Anna Neethling-Pohl en die skrywers Freda Linde en Karel Schoeman.

In the course of 27 short chapters, Linda Fortune draws a vivid picture of a place, time and lifestyle that no longer exist. This book never gets bogged down in politics. Instead, it succeeds in recreating a specific time and specific place with its focus firstly on one family in particular, warts and all. A bigger picture also emerges, that of a whole community: people - teachers, shop-keepers, barbers, entertainers - and specific places - movie-houses, shops, streets and lanes - still recalled by many who lived there. Eighteen black and white photographs by photographers such as Cloete Breytenbach, J.H. Greshoff, George Hallet and Noor Ebrahim, and family snapshots from Linda's own collection, adds to the value of The House in Tyne Street as a recreation of and testament to the District.
