'The voice of the voiceless has been emancipated with great skill...'
Mongane Wally Serote
'Beautifully (and differently) written... traces a real history of SA through minor, ordinary details of a family's life and a few extraordinary experiences of not-very-powerful people.'
Rehana Rossouw, Business Day
'A fascinating perspective on Cape Town as an Indian Ocean city, drawing on both Malay and Indian strands...'
Isabel Hofmeyr
'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.

Khamr: The Makings Of A Waterslams is a true story that maps the author's experience of living with an alcoholic father and the direct conflict of having to perform a Muslim life that taught him that nearly everything he called home was forbidden.
A detailed account from his childhood to early adulthood, Jamil F. Khan lays bare the experience of living in a so-called middle-class Coloured home in a neighbourhood called Bernadino Heights in Kraaifontein, a suburb to the north of Cape Town. His memories are overwhelmed by the constant discord that was created by the chaos and dysfunction of his alcoholic home and a co-dependent relationship with his mother, while trying to manage the daily routine of his parents keeping up appearances and him maintaining scholastic excellence.

Khan's memories are clear and detailed, which in turn is complemented by his scholarly thinking and analysis of those memories. He interrogates the intersections of Islam, Colouredness and the hypocrisy of respectability as well as the effect perceived class status has on these social realities in simple yet incisive language, giving the reader more than just a memoir of pain and suffering.

Khan says about his debut book: 'This is not a story for the romanticisation of pain and perseverance, although it tells of overcoming many difficulties. It is a critique of secret violence in faith communities and families, and the hypocrisy that has damaged so many people still looking for a place and way to voice their trauma. This is a critique of the value placed on ritual and culture at the expense of human life and well-being, and the far-reaching consequences of systems of oppression dressed up as tradition.'

Khayelitsha covers the journey of a white South African into a Cape Town township notorious amongst outsiders as the dwelling place of poverty, disease and crime. What he finds in Khayelitsha, which means New Home in Xhosa, is an often humorous display of contradictions, with happiness, compassion and ubuntu thriving side-by-side with tsotsis, HIV/Aids and poverty. Khayelitsha winds its way from the fresh suburbs of the new black middle class, to the sprawling shack areas of the hundreds of thousands of Cape Town's poorest, most of them migrants from the old Apartheid homelands. Still more fascinating is the gradual crumbling of the author's prejudices as day-by-day his life there normalises through experiences that are shared by so many of his countrymen - love, togetherness and the willingness to laugh.

A deeply moving and powerful biography of Fezekile Kuzwayo - better known as Khwezi - the woman the ANC tried to forget.
In August 2016, following the announcement of the results of South Africa's heated municipal election, four courageous young women interrupted Jacob Zuma's victory address, bearing placards asking us to 'Remember Khwezi'. Before being dragged away by security guards, their powerful message had hit home and the public was reminded of the tragic events of 2006, when Zuma was on trial for the rape of Fezekile Ntsukela Kuzwayo, better known as Khwezi. In the aftermath of the trial, which saw Zuma acquitted, Khwezi was vilified by his many supporters and forced to take refuge outside of South Africa.

Ten years later, just two months after this protest had put Khwezi's struggle back into the minds and hearts of South Africans, Khwezi passed away … But not before she had slipped back into South Africa and started work with Redi Tlhabi on a book about her life. How as a young girl living in ANC camps in exile she was raped by the very men who were supposed to protect her; how as an adult she was driven once again into exile, suffering not only at the hands of Zuma's devotees but under the harsh eye of the media.

In sensitive and considered prose, journalist Redi Tlhabi breathes life into a woman for so long forced to live in the shadows. In giving agency back to Khwezi, Tlhabi is able to focus a broader lens on the sexual abuse that abounded during the 'struggle' years, abuse which continues to plague women and children in South Africa today.

the 17 years he spent in Zimbabwe - his most productive in terms of ornithological research
his worldwide travels in a quest to study birds

trips from the Arctic to the Antarctic, to remote Southern Ocean islands and to several Indian Ocean islands and St Helena
travels also to the USA, South America, Australia, New Zealand and Ethiopia - all in pursuit of birds.
His detailed and fascinating memoir captures the author's great enthusiasm for birds and their role in his shaping his life and experiences.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING MEMOIR 'Incredibly moving and haunting' Roxane Gay 'I read this book cover to cover and it stunned me' Jia Tolentino 'Powerful, honest and necessary' Marian Keyes 'To girls everywhere, I am with you. On nights when you feel alone, I am with you. When people doubt you or dismiss you, I am with you. I fought every day for you. So never stop fighting, I believe you.' Chanel Miller's story changed our world forever. In 2016 Brock Turner was sentenced to just six months in jail after he was caught sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. His light sentencing, and Chanel's victim impact statement, which was read by eleven million people in four days, sparked international outrage and action. Know My Name is an intimate, profoundly moving memoir that exposes a patriarchal culture biased to protect perpetrators, a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and ultimately shines with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life. Entwining pain, resilience, and humour, this breath-taking memoir will stand as a modern classic. 'To read Know My Name inspires hope' Guardian 'A searing, beautiful book' Sunday Times 'Know My Name marks the debut of a gifted young writer. Miller's words are purpose. They are maps. And she is a treasure who has prevailed' New York Times

In 1957 emigreer die negejarige Henk van Woerden vanaf Nederland met sy gesin na Kaapstad - leertas in die hand, mussie oor die ore, serp om die nek, glasoog in die oogkas. Eers veertig jaar later ontdek hy wat die rede was vir hierdie vertrek na Suid-Afrika: Sy pa was 'n kollaborateur in die Tweede Wêreldoorlog. Die emigrasie is die begin van 'n lewe as buitestaander en vorm later die rooi draad in sy skilderye en literêre werk.

Koning eenoog is die 'n boeiende biografie van die ewig soekende emigrant Henk van Woerden (1947-2005), 'n skrywer wat nie net 'n bekroonde oeuvre agtergelaat het nie (Een mond vol glas - Alan Paton Award en die Frans Kellendronk-prys, Ultramarijn - Gouden Uil en Inktaap) maar ook die Nederlandse literatuur oor Suid-Afrika verander het.

'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.
