Once a week, in late eighteenth-century London, writers of contrasting politics and personalities gathered around a dining table. The host was Joseph Johnson, publisher and bookseller: a man at the heart of literary life. He was joined at dinner by a shifting constellation of extraordinary people who remade the literary world, including the Swiss artist Henry Fuseli, his chief engraver William Blake and scientists Joseph Priestley and Benjamin Franklin. William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge were among the attendees, as were the poet Anna Barbauld, the novelist Maria Edgeworth and the philosopher Mary Wollstonecraft. Johnson's years as a maker of books saw profound political, social, cultural and religious shifts in Britain and abroad. Several of his authors were involved in the struggles for reform; they pioneered revolutions in medical treatment, proclaimed the rights of women and children and charted the evolution of Britain's relationship with America and Europe. Johnson made their voices heard even when external forces conspired to silence them. In this remarkable portrait of a revolutionary age, Daisy Hay captures a changing nation through the stories of the men and women who wrote it into being, and whose ideas still influence us today.

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.'

Dirk Mudge publiseer op 87-jarige ouderdom sy langverwagte outobiografie. Hierdie besonderse man was vir 33 jaar voltyds betrokke by die politiek van Suidwes-Afrika en later Namibië. Hy betree die politiek in 1960 toe hy lid word van die Wetgewende Vergadering onder die Nasionale Party van Suidwes-Afrika. Mudge beskryf hoe hy aanvanklik die beginsels van die Nasionale Party onderskryf het, maar mettertyd tot ander insigte gekom het. Dit het onvermydelik tot sy uittrede uit die Nasionale Party gelei en tot die stigting van sy eie party: die Republikeinse Party. Hy het 'n persoonlike aandeel gehad in die skryf van die nuwe Grondwet vir die Republiek van Namibië en probeer in hierdie boek antwoorde verskaf op vrae soos waarom dit Namibië so lank geneem het om onafhanklikheid te bereik en wat die rol van Suid-Afrika en die internsionale gemeenskap daarin gespeel het.
Dirk Mudge is 'n boer en afgetrede politikus.

"I was 19 years old when I came face to face with Nelson Mandela. He was 60. Until that day I had never heard of him, or his African National Congress. I was his prison warder on Robben Island and he changed my life forever." - Christo Brand

The two of them - one a young white warder, the other serving a life sentence - should have become bitter enemies. Instead they formed an extraordinary friendship through small acts of human kindness. Christo, a gentle young man who valued ordinary decency and courtesy, struck a chord with the wise and resilient freedom fighter.

This bond of trust endured between the two men long after Mandela was freed.

In this book Christo tells, for the first time, the incredible and moving story of their unlikely friendship. He provides rare and personal insights into Mandela's life during his years on Robben Island.

At the age of 23, Brian Wood was thrust into the front line in Iraq, in the infamous Battle of Danny Boy. Ambushed, he led a charge across open ground with insurgents firing at just five soldiers. On his return, he was awarded the Military Cross. But Brian's story had only just begun. Struggling to re-integrate into family life, he suffered from PTSD. Then, five years later, a letter arrived: it summoned him to give evidence at the Al-Sweady Inquiry into allegations of war crimes by British soldiers during the Iraq invasion of 2003. After years of public shame, Brian took the stand and delivered a powerful testimony, and following the tense inquiry room scenes, justice was finally served. Phil Shiner, the lawyer who made the false accusations, was struck off and stripped of an honorary doctorate. In this compelling memoir, Brian speaks powerfully and movingly about the three battles in his life, from being ambushed with no cover, to the mental battle to adjust at home, to being falsely accused of hideous war crimes. It's a remarkable and dark curve which ends with his honour restored but, as he says, it was too little, too late.

Down second avenue is Es'kia Mphahlele's autobiography of his South African childhood and his struggle against discrimination. The memoir tells of Es'kia's childhood in Maupaneng, a small village outside Pietersburg, and Marabastad, a location in Pretoria. Here he showed academic promise. This resulted in a career as a teacher. After a number of years, though, he was barred from teaching because of his vocal opposition to the segregation and discrimination occurring in schools. Mphahlele then worked for Drum magazine in various capacities. The biography culminates in his exile from South Africa in 1957. Down second avenue is Mphahlele's personal account of his struggle for identity and dignity in the face of the growing discriminatory policies of the South African government. It is a compelling mix of humour and pathos.

Aan die hand van eietydse dokumentasie het Karel Schoeman in hierdie boek die lewe herkonstrueer van sy Suid-Afrikaanse stamvader, die Duitser Hendrik Schoeman uit Sleeswyk-Holstein, wat in 1724 as matroos in diens van die VOC die Kaap bereik het, 'n Prekêre bestaan gemaak het as veeboer in die binneland van Suid-Afrika, en in 1765 in armoede in die huidige Klein-Karoo oorlede is. Soos Schoeman opmerk, is hierdie man in verskeie opsigte geskik om as 'tipiese' stamvader uit die Kompanjiestyd beskou te word.

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.

Die 21-jarige Vanessa Goosen, ʼn finalis in die Mej. S.A.-kompetisie en op die drumpel van ʼn groot deurbraak in haar model-loopbaan, word vasgevang in enige reisiger se ergste nagmerrie. Sy word mislei om boeke waarin 1.7 kilogram heroïen versteek is, vir iemand uit Thailand saam te bring, maar word gearresteer vir dwelmhandel.
Die Thaise owerhede steur hulle min aan haar pleidooie van onskuld, en lê haar die doodsvonnis op. Na appèl word dit verminder na lewenslange tronkstraf in Bangkok se berugte Lard Yao.

Swanger, vreesbevange, desperaat en alleen begin Goosen se reis van sestien jaar agter tralies. Drie jaar later word sy gedwing om afskeid te neem van haar geliefde dogtertjie. Goosen se verhaal vertel van die vreugde en verlies van moederskap in aanhouding, depressie weens langtermyn-aanhouding en die gedwonge skeiding van geliefdes, en haar terugkeer in 2010 na 'n Suid-Afrika wat sy byna nie herken nie.
