In this publication, two separate texts that should be read alongside the authoritative Marais biography, Die groot verlange, is made available in a single volume. Eugene Marais and the Darwin Syndrome explores the role that the father-son relationship possibly could have played in Marais's inability to complete his magnum opus.

In hierdie publikasie word twee afsonderlike tekste wat naas die gesaghebbende Marais-biografie, Die groot verlange, gelees moet word, in een volume uitgegee. Eugene Marais and the Darwin Syndrome ondersoek die rol wat die pa-seun-verhouding moontlik kon gespeel het in Marais se onvermoe om sy magnum opus te voltooi. Die dowwe spoor van Eugene Marais, 'n informele bronneboek by Marais se lewensverhaal, bevat feite en name wat in die lewensverhaal verswyg of verdoesel is.

In medical school, no one teaches you how to let a patient die. Jessica Zitter became a doctor because she wanted to be a hero. She elected to specialize in critical care--to become an ICU physician--and imagined herself swooping in to rescue patients from the brink of death. But then during her first code she found herself cracking the ribs of a patient so old and frail it was unimaginable he would ever come back to life. She began to question her choice. Extreme Measures charts Zitter's journey from wanting to be one kind of hero to becoming another--a doctor who prioritizes the patient's values and preferences in an environment where the default choice is the extreme use of technology. In our current medical culture, the old and the ill are put on what she terms the End-of-Life Conveyor belt. They are intubated, catheterized, and even shelved away in care facilities to suffer their final days alone, confused, and often in pain. In her work Zitter has learned what patients fear more than death itself: the prospect of dying badly. She builds bridges between patients and caregivers, formulates plans to allay patients' pain and anxiety, and enlists the support of loved ones so that life can end well, even beautifully. Filled with rich patient stories that make a compelling medical narrative, Extreme Measures enlarges the national conversation as it thoughtfully and compassionately examines an experience that defines being human.

Fly the Tattered Dreamcoat is the story of Whetsho-otsile Joseph (Joe) Seremane, the founding federal chair of the Democratic Alliance in South Africa. Joe's story spans six decades and tells of a visionary who survived incarceration at Robben Island, exile to Bophuthatswana and further incarceration at Fort Glamorgan.
Joe starts out as a champion of the banned People's Africanist Congress but gradually develops a more holistic viewpoint. He concludes that he can contribute to the new democracy by helping to swell the ranks of the opposition. Eventually, in 2002, Joe finds his way to the Democratic Alliance as their founding federal chair. Hurt and disappointment come his way as he is seen as a traitor and a coconut by erstwhile comrades and co-prisoners.
As democracy in his beloved homeland starts to shed its skin of idealism and hope, he has to grapple with grave personal loss and a compelling question: Who is the enemy really? In his foreword, Tony Leon, erstwhile leader of the DA, notes: I commend Fly the Tattered Dream Coat, both for its deep dive into this country's history-in-the-making and the human story it describes one of the more significant but underappreciated fighters for South Africa's freedom.
In this engaging and authentic record of Joe's storied careers and background, Dr Maske recounts Joe's presence in my life at both its happiest and saddest …

Told with inimitable charm and humour, this is a personal story of family, friendship and faith, beautifully demonstrating God's love at work in the turbulence of Africa's recent history.

The autobiography of Dr. Michael Cassidy, one of the most influential people in the development of modern South Africa and a key figure in the growth of the Christian church in Southern Africa over the last fifty years.

As the nations of Africa shook off the shackles of colonialism and embraced their newfound independence in the 1960s, a singular figure burst into prominence in the tumultuous and expectant atmosphere gripping the continent. A son of apartheid South Africa, Michael Cassidy appeared an unlikely candidate to bring a Gospel message of salvation, reconciliation and hope to a land throwing off the chains of apartheid.

Told with inimitable charm and humour, this is a personal story of family, friendship and faith and beautifully demonstrates God's love at work in the turbulence of Africa's recent history.

Step into the world of Frida Kahlo: behind the portraits and the surrealist art discover the fascinating woman who has transfixed the world. Fridamania has made Frida Kahlo's image ubiquitous: she has been reborn as a Halloween costume, Barbie doll, children's book character, textile print, phone cover and the inspiration for everything from cocktails to fashion shoots. But it is more difficult to get a clear vision of this bold and brilliant, foul-mouthed, heavy-drinking, hard-smoking, husband-stealing, occasionally bisexual, often bed-bound, wheelchair-using, needy, forthright and passionate woman. Hettie Judah sets out to correct that with this superb biography of one of the most charismatic artists of the last hundred years. Follow Frida's life through tumultuous love and life-altering accidents, towards recognition in the art world from the likes of Andre Breton and Marcel Duchamp, to becoming the first Mexican artist held at the Louvre. Judah delves into Kahlo's experiences and how these came together to inspire the art that has been described as an uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. From an early battle with Polio, to a debilitating bus accident at 18, through love and heart ache, the life of Frida Kahlo was one of pain but a pain that bore great beauty.

Richard Victor Selope Thema was one of the influential black figures in South Africa in the 20th century - yet he is mostly forgotten today. He was a member of the ANC from 1912, serving for many years on its National Executive Committee. He was a founder of the All-African Convention, was elected to the Natives Representative Council, and was in constant demand as spokesperson and advocate for African rights. He was the first editor of Bantu World, which today is the Sowetan. This is his story.

Joey Evans has always loved bikes, from his first second-hand Raleigh Strika at the age of six to the powerful off-road machines that became his passion later on in his life. His dream was one day to ride the most gruelling off-road race in the world, the 9000km Dakar Rally. In 2007 his dream was shattered when he broke his back in a racing accident. His spinal cord was crushed, leaving him paralysed from just below his chest. Doctors gave him a 10 per cent chance of ever walking again. Many would have given up and become resigned to life in a wheelchair, but not Joey Evans.
Not only would he get back on his feet and walk, but he would also keep his Dakar dream alive. It was a long and painful road to recovery, involving years of intensive rehabilitation and training, but he had the love and support of both family and friends and an incredible amount of determination. Joey shares the many challenges he and his family faced, relating the setbacks, as well as successes, along the way to the Dakar start line. But the start line was only the first goal - his sights were set on reaching the finish line, which he did in 2017 - the only South African to do so.

From Para To Dakar is so much more than the story of one man reaching the Dakar finish line. It is a story of friendship and respect, compassion and kindness. It is about defying the odds to reach a dream, it is about grit, endurance and raw courage, and it is inspiring in its true heroism.

'My name is Samantha and I'm an alcoholic. At the time of writing, I've been sober for 13 years, 11 months and 16 days. And yes I still count. I promised I would never speak about it publicly until my children understood what that meant, that mommy was an alcoholic. I think they may have understood long before I did.'
From Whiskey To Water is the no-holds-barred memoir by one of South Africa's most loved radio talk show hosts, Sam Cowen. Having kept her alcohol addiction well away from the public eye for over 14 years, in this tell-all tale, Sam finds the courage to talk about her struggle with her addiction to whiskey, food and finally to a passion that saved her life - marathon swimming. Told in her characteristically hilarious dead-pan style, this is one of the bravest books you'll read this year.

'So this is a book on how I stopped drinking? No, it's not. It's how I stopped drinking, started eating, became clinically severely obese, stopped eating (everything that wasn't nailed down) and swam my way to freedom. No, it's not. It's actually about addiction and learning and sadness and anxiety and love and drive. It's about channelling the unchangeable into the miraculous. It's about dragons and learning how to put them to sleep when you can't slay them. It's about being my own Daenarys.'

For fans of David Sedaris, Tina Fey and Caitlin Moran comes the new book from Jenny Lawson, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Let's Pretend This Never Happened. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Jenny Lawson regaled readers with uproarious stories of her bizarre childhood. In her new book, Furiously Happy, she explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea. And terrible ideas are what Jenny does best. As Jenny says: 'You can't experience pain without also experiencing the baffling and ridiculous moments of being fiercely, unapologetically, intensely and (above all) furiously happy.' It's a philosophy that has - quite literally - saved her life. Jenny's first book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened, was ostensibly about family, but deep down it was about celebrating your own weirdness. Furiously Happy is a book about mental illness, but under the surface it's about embracing joy in fantastic and outrageous ways. And who doesn't need a bit more of that?

As jy in 1850 in Bristol 'n weeskind was, was die lewe hard maar as jy plek gekry het in Ashley Down, een van George Müller se Kinderhuise, het die toekoms weer gewink. By Ashley Down is daar waarlik na jou omgesien. Dit was soos om in 'n groot, gelukkige, liefdevolle gesin te wees. George Müller was so 'n vriendelike man, en Ashley Down was 'n besondere plek om te wees.

Maar... toe George Müller jonk was, was hy selfsugtig en niemand kon op hom reken nie. Sou jy iemand vertrou wat nie alleen sy vriende se geld gesteel het nie, maar ook sy ouers s'n? Wat het dan die groot verandering gebring? Het die tyd in die tronk hom daartoe gebring om nie meer te steel nie? Was dit die tragiese dood van sy ma wat gekeer het dat hy weer leuens vertel? Wat is dit wat 'n dief verander het in iemand wat jy kon vertrou met miljoene Rande? Hoe het dit gekom dat hy sy geboorteland, Duitsland, verlaat het om in Engeland te gaan woon?

Vind uit hoe die Here een jong man se lewe merkwaardig verander het van selfsug en inhaligheid, tot dapper en betroubaar; hoe sy hart verlos is van selfgerigtheid. George het die kinders van sy nuwe huis in sy hart opgeneem en die kinders van Bristol het in hom iemand gevind wat sou opkom vir hulle belange. Hulle het hom vertou en liefgehad. George was die kinders se held.
