'n Baie lang brief aan my dogter is Marita van der Vyver, een van Afrikaans se mees geliefde skrywers, se ontroerende jeugmemoir. Dit is 'n speurtog deur die skrywer se beginjare, maar dit is ook 'n liefdesbrief aan 'n dogter en 'n taal en 'n land. En bowenal is dit 'n ma se poging om sin te maak van hierdie wrede wêreld waarin sy haar nou begewe.

Ek besluit om die Camino Portugués te stap as aanloop tot my sestigste verjaardag. Maar om dít te kan doen, moet ek eers my lewenslange patroon van fisieke onaktiwiteit takel.
Tot my ontnugtering is die Camino nie van begin tot einde die salige en spirituele ervaring wat ek in die vooruitsig gestel het nie. Maar tog … eers na afloop van die Camino besef ek hoe my staptog vorm aangeneem het en dat dít 'n psigiese rigtingwyser is: Vir my is daar maar net één pad, en dis die een wat ek self moet vind.

Die skrywer Erika Murray-Theron wou weet waar die vroue in haar familie vandaan kom. Wat kry 'n mens van wie? Waar kom alles wat jý is vandaan? Hoe is die vroue in haar familie se lewe geraak deur trauma en groot wêreldgebeurtenisse waaroor hulle geen beheer gehad het nie? Theron se ouma Issie is op 3 Mei 1885 gebore; 133 jaar gelede. In hierdie verhaalbiografie gaan soek Theron in ou kookboeke, aantekeninge, foto's, herinneringe, albums, briewe en geslagsregisters na haar ouma Issie se storie. 'n Lewe ontvou wat geraak is deur die verlies van ouers, die Anglo-Boereoorlog, die Rebellie van 1914 en daarna die energie wat dit verg om 'n groot huisgesin te behartig. 'n Skerfie glas wys hoe die verlede, selfs die verre verlede, spore op latere geslagte laat.

Die eerste volume van die outobiografie van Elsa Joubert, een van die mees gerekende skrywers in Afrikaans. Die outobiografie dek die eerste 25 jaar van Joubert se lewe, haar grootwordjare in die Paarl, haar skooljare, studentejare aan die universiteite van Stellenbosch en Kaapstad, eerste onderwysposte en haar slyping in die joernalistiek. Dit is 'n outobiografie wat met verstommende detail 'n beeld bied van 'n bepaalde era in die land se geskiedenis, maar ook van die wording van 'n skrywer. Joubert deins nie terug van omstrede kwessies nie, en onder meer kom haar betrokkenheid by die Ossewabrandwag aan bod. Maar die vernaamste beeld is die van 'n skrywer wat as kind reeds die drang na woorde ervaar, wat in die onstuimige tyd na die Tweede Wêreldoorlog te midde van klomp invloede haar onafhanklike stem as skrywer probeer vind.

A collection of the most inspiring and powerful letters of all time. The written word has the power to inspire, astonish and entertain, as this collection of 100 letters that changed history will show. Ordered chronologically, the letters range from ink-inscribed tablets that vividly describe life in the Roman Empire to remarkable last wills and testaments, passionate outpourings of love and despair, and succinct notes with deadly consequences. Entries include: A resume from Leonardo da Vinci, with barely a mention of his artistic talents; Henry VIII's love letters to Anne Boleyn, which eventually led to the dissolution of the monasteries; Beatrix Potter's correspondence with a friend's son that introduced the character of Peter Rabbit; SOS telegrams from the Titanic; Abraham Lincoln's letter that contradicted his fight against slavery; a legal letter marking the end of the Beatles; Emile Zola's open letter ('J'accuse!'); the scrawled note that brought about Oscar Wilde's downfall; as well as famous last words from Virginia Woolf to Kurt Cobain.

Here is Mandela the statesman, the prisoner, the father, sometimes the joker, and occasionally the disciplinarian.

Mandela is shown in snapshot, in the memories of old friends like George Bizos, in the words of inspiring legends like Muhammad Ali, leading the Defiance Campaign against apartheid laws, or doing the famous Madiba shuffle to Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Queen Elizabeth II.

100 Mandela Moments is an accessible introduction to the man who so profoundly influenced the South Africa of today.

The story of his life that emerges is as varied and complex, as touching and inspiring, as Madiba himself

Dr. Anton vertel self: 'In 13 klutse kwyt onthou ek 47 jaar en 14 betrekkings se werksituasies: verreweg die meeste daarvan interessant of komies of albei. Die soet, het ek aanvanklik gedink, behoort darem die bietjie suur te oorheers.
Maar die skryf hiervan het my 'n soeter les geleer: ek kon skielik insien dat die minder aangename toe te skryf was aan gefrustreerde kollegas wat deur die jare hulle werksdag gevrees het - iets wat die werksomgewing versuur het. En ek hoop dat ek uiteindelik die meeste van hulle met 'n sagter kwas geteer het.'

Dr. Anton Prinsloo het op 10-jarige leeftyd sy eerste stories in die kinderhoekie van die destydse koerant, Die Transvaler, gepubliseer en word sedertdien steeds deur taal betower. Hy het 13 betrekkings beklee voordat hy sy ideale werk by die SAUK as taaladviseur en omroeper raakgeloop het. Hy was onder meer voorsitter van die Taalkommissie van die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns, van die Nasionale Taalliggaam vir Afrikaans en van die Komitee vir Taaladvies van die SAUK. Uit sy pen het ook verskyn Annerlike Afrikaans ('n woordeboek van kontreitaal), Feite, flaters, fiksie ('n versameling taaleienaardighede); Spreekwoorde en waar hulle vandaan kom; 'n woordeboek van hedendaagse Omgangsafrikaans, Sleng, en was mede-outeur saam met prof. F.F. Odendal van 'n normerende woordeboek, Afrikaans op sy beste. Hy het ook as medeouteur aan die Supplement van die Etimologiewoordeboek van Afrikaans meegewerk. Sy werk is bekroon deur die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns, die FAK en die ATKV.

HOW 21 LIFE LESSONS @ 21 CAME ABOUT
By Thembalethu Seyisi
When I started thinking of ways to celebrate my 21st birthday on 2 December, I realised after the difficult year we've all been through due to the Covid-19 pandemic, having a normal birthday party in 2020 wouldn't feel quite right.

After deep reflection on how I could best celebrate the milestone of turning 21, I felt the need to pay it forward. Over the past few years, I've been immensely privileged to have been inspired and mentored by exceptional South African women and men. I wanted other young people to also experience the love, grace and inspiration I have benefited from.

I decided to compile a book consisting of life lessons for young people, 21 Life Lessons @ 21. I approached 21 successful people I admire - some high-profile people and some personal heroes as well as family members - to share one life lesson or insight they wish they'd known at 21. A succinct purpose of this book is captured in the isiXhosa saying Inyathi ibuzwa kwabaphambili - wisdom is learnt from the elders.

I hope all the pearls of wisdom in 21 Life Lessons @ 21 will inspire and motivate every young person who reads it to rise above the odds and to see that it is possible to escape the shackles of poverty and deprivation - as so many contributors to this book prove with their life stories. My wish is also that this book will encourage readers to provide a lifeline to those who are still suffocated by inequality and injustice.

• This book is about the shaping of a different world. Not the grand sweeping shift of idealists or the disruptive change of radicals, but the deep and incremental breakthroughs of ordinary people.
• The story is about something much bigger than being a person with a state and a flag, religious identity or a culture participating in a particular cause. One by one the individual interviews connect the private and the public, the particular and the general, the paradigmatic and the practical, the micro and the meta. The point of departure of the 21 South African and Israeli activists is not a national state, but the moral state between people and the Palestinian struggle serves as a special, focused lens for global issues.
• This inspiring and well-researched book in plain language will appeal as much to newcomers to the topic as to seasoned scholars, activists and anyone interested in the kind of moral leadership that does not simply fix problems but shapes a better world. It is a must-have in a time when a crumbling world yearns for collective sanity

Sivosethu Ndubela - fondly known as Vovo - is a young Xhosa girl who lives in New Brighton, near Port Elizabeth.
Apart from growing up with the challenges of poverty, crime and limited opportunities, Vovo was orphaned when she was 13. This led to Tony Pearce going from a friend of the family, involved in an after-school dramatic arts project, to become the guardian of Vovo and her older sister, Vuyolwethu.

A few years later Vovo was diagnosed with a rare heart condition. She subsequently underwent two life-threatening open-heart surgeries. Her recovery continues to surprise her family and healthcare specialists, and her bravery in fighting for her life is a true inspiration.

By sharing the harsh circumstances of township life and the factors that have shaped her journey, Vovo reveals her remarkable resilience and it becomes clear why she is a Miracle Girl.

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.

Waking up the next morning in the tiny rented flat he shared with his wife Kitty and their one-year-old son, he was beyond excited about the new glamorous world of show business. Unfortunately, he was also clueless . . . In A Funny Life, Michael honestly and hilariously shares the highs and the lows of his rise to the top and desperate attempts to stay there. It's all here, from his disastrous panel show appearances to his hit TV shows, from mistakenly thinking he'd be a good chat show host and talent judge, to finding fame and fortune beyond his wildest dreams and becoming the biggest-selling comedian in the world. Along the way he opens his man drawer, narrowly avoids disaster when his trousers fall down in front of three policemen and learns the hard way why he should always listen to his wife.
