Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet just a few years after the end of Apartheid she would become a most trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela, growing to respect and cherish the man she had been taught was the enemy.

Good Morning, Mr Mandela tells the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life, beliefs, prejudices and everything she once believed in utterly transformed by the greatest man of her time. It is the incredible journey of an awkward, terrified young typist in her twenties later chosen to become the President's most loyal and devoted servants, spending most of her adult working life travelling with, supporting and caring for the man she would come to call 'Khulu', or 'grandfather'.

Here Zelda pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as she knew him, a teacher who gave her the most valuable lessons of her life. A man who refused to defined by his past, who forgave and respected all, but who was also frank, teasing and direct. As he renewed his country, he also freed Zelda from a closed world of fear and mistrust, giving her life true meaning. Now she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world.

This is a book about love and second chances. It will touch your life and make you believe that every one of us, no matter who are or what we have done, has the power to change.

Award-winning beloved actress and talented singer/songwriter Katey Sagal crafts an evocative and gripping memoir told in essays—perfect for fans of Patti Smith's M Train and Mary-Louise Parker's Dear Mr. You.
In Grace Notes, Katey Sagal chronicles the rollercoaster ride of her life in this series of gorgeously wrought vignettes, resulting in a memoir unlike any other Hollywood memoir you've read before.
She takes you through the highs and lows of her life, from the tragic deaths of her parents to her long years in the Los Angeles rock scene, from being diagnosed with cancer at the age of twenty-eight to getting her big break on the fledgling FOX network as the wise-cracking Peggy Bundy on the beloved sitcom Married…with Children.
Sparse and poetic, Grace Notes is an emotionally riveting tale of struggle and success, both professional and personal: Sagal's battle with sobriety; the still birth of her first daughter, Ruby; the challenges of maintaining a marriage with her second husband as he struggled with his own addiction; motherhood; the experience of having her third daughter at age fifty-two with the help of a surrogate; and her lifelong passion for music. Intimate, candid, and offering an inside look at the entertainment industry, Grace Notes offers unprecedented access to the previously unknown life of a woman whom audiences have loved for over thirty years.

Ignatius Smit sterf by geboorte op Woensdag, 3 Maart 1982 op Katima Mulilo in Namibië se Kaprivistrook. Omdat Ignatius se ouers die sendingpaar is, word hy begrawe op 'n afgeleë plek in 'n bos, naby die graf van magistraat Trollop wat aan koors in Barotsiland gesterf het.

Sy ma sukkel om sy dood te verwerk, omdat sy as geestelike leier verantwoordelik voel vir die vertroosting van die dorpsmense, wat net so platgeslaan is deur sy onverwagte dood.

Jare later haal sy onverwekte dood haar in.

Hierdie is háár, Leonette, se verhaal. Dis 'n verhaal van verlies en die verwerking daarvan, wat grootliks afspeel binne die militêre milieu - waarvan grenslewe 'n groot komponent is.

Baie jare later kry sy vertroosting deur berading en musiekterapie van 'n orrelsimfonie van Saint-Saëns. Dit gee vir haar 'n visualisering van Ignatius se lewe na die dood. Só kry sy volkome bevryding vir haar pynlike smart.

Grens sal veral spreek tot lesers wat bekend is met verlies en die proses van rou ná die dood.

'Chris Hani's assassination in 1993 gave rise to one of South Africa's great imponderables: if he had survived, what impact would he have had on politics and government in South Africa? More pointedly, could this charismatic leader have risen to become president of the country? Hani was a hero of South Africa's liberation, a communist party leader and Umkhonto we Sizwe chief of staff who was both intellectual and fighter, a man who could inspire an army but carried a book of poetry in his backpack. Hani led MK into its earliest battles, and carved a formidable reputation as a thinker, debater and peacemaker. Hani: A Life Too Short tells the story of Hani's life, from his childhood in rural Transkei and education at Fort Hare University to the controversial Memorandum of 1969, the crisis in the ANC camps in Angola in the 1980s and the heady dawn of freedom. Drawing on interviews and the recollections of those who knew him, this vividly written book provides a detailed account of the life of a great South African. '

No sleep for twenty hours. No food for ten. And a ward full of soon-to-be mothers… Welcome to the life of a midwife.
Life on the NHS front line, working within a system at breaking point, is more extreme than you could ever imagine. From the bloody to the beautiful, from moments of utter vulnerability to remarkable displays of strength, from camaraderie to raw desperation, from heart-wrenching grief to the pure, perfect joy of a new-born baby, midwife Leah Hazard has seen it all.

Through her eyes, we meet Eleanor, whose wife is a walking miracle of modern medicine, their baby a feat of reproductive science; Crystal, pregnant at just fifteen, the precarious, flickering life within her threatening to come far too soon; Star, birthing in a room heady with essential oils and love until an enemy intrudes and Pei Hsuan, who has carried her tale of exploitation and endurance thousands of miles to somehow find herself at the open door of Leah's ward.

Moving, compassionate and intensely candid, Hard Pushed is a love letter to new mothers and to Leah's fellow midwives - there for us at some of the most challenging, empowering and defining moments of our lives.

Vir die vroue wat hy met sy rolprentsterglimlag betower het, was Chris Barnard 'n hartebreker. Vir sy pasiënte 'n harteheler.
Dié nuwe biografie oor Suid-Afrika se beroemdste hartsjirurg vertel nie net van Barnard se kinderjare in Beaufort-Wes, sy prominente huwelike (en egskeidings) en flambojante lewe nie. James Styan ondersoek ook die impak van die historiese eerste hartoorplanting op Barnard se persoonlike lewe en op die Suid-Afrikaanse gemeenskap oor die algemeen, waar apartheidswetgewing dikwels die probleme van geneeskunde nog ingewikkelder gemaak het. Die rol van swart mediese personeel soos Hamilton Naki word bespreek, sowel as die intense wedywering wat tussen ander beroemde hartsjirurge en Barnard ontstaan het.
Hoe het Barnard dit reggekry om hulle almal in dié resies om lewe en dood te wen? Hoeveel het sy welbekende sjarme daarmee te doen gehad? En wat is Barnard se nalatenskap vandag, in die lig van sy latere suksesse en aansienlike mislukkings? Styan dek dit alles in dié fassinerende nuwe blik op Chris Barnard.

In this new biography of Chris Barnard we not only learn about the life of South Africa's most famous surgeon, from his Beaufort West childhood through his studies locally and abroad to his prominent marriages - and divorces - but James Styan also examines the impact of the historic heart transplant on Barnard's personal life and South African society at large, where apartheid legislation often made the difficulties of medicine even more convoluted.
The role of black medical staff like Hamilton Naki is explored, as is the intense rivalry that arose between other famous heart surgeons and Barnard. How did Barnard manage to beat them all in this race of life and death? How much did his famous charisma have to do with it all? And in the light of his later years, his subsequent successes and considerable failures, what is Barnard's legacy today?

Styan covers it all in this fascinating new account of a real heartbreaker that coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first heart transplant.

Veelbekroonde reisskrywer Dana Snyman vertel die verhaal van sy eie lewensreis, dié van sy familie en van sy land.
Hy reis agter stories uit die verlede aan, van die eerste Snyman, seun van 'n wit pa en 'n slavin-ma, tot vandag, waar mense op die platteland hom in hul geheime inlaat. Elkeen van ons het mos sy eie 'Inkandla' - tuisdorp - en Dana se reis neem hom onder meer ook na Julius Malema se ouma se huis en na President Zuma se werklike Inkandla in KwaZulu-Natal, waar hy bokvleis met President Zuma se broer geëet het. Dan keer Dana terug huis toe, via Bloedrivier en die museum waar sy oupa se broek nog uitgestal word...
Dana se verhaal is vervleg met die stories van ons almal wat 'hiervandaan' is. Eg, warm en gevul met deernis, soos ons Dana leer ken en leer liefkry het.
'Die prentjies waarvoor die res van ons nie die oë het nie... verhale wat wiegend - soos Dana se groot ou rooi Valiant - uit die voue van godvergete hoekies van die padkaart uitkruie.' Rapport
