Met die “groot vyf” wolkekrabbers in die stadskern wysig Hannes van der Merwe saam met ander, in die jare sestig en sewentig, die luglyn van Kaapstad: die Naspers-gebou, die Cartwright-hoekgebou, die uitbreiding aan die kantore van die Kaaplandse Provinsiale Administrasie se gebou, die Suid-Afrikaanse Reserwebank en die Kaapstadse Burgersentrum (vandag die Unistad-hoofkantoor). Maar Hannes van der Merwe is veel meer as bloot argitek. Hy was jare lank betrokke by die Kaaplandse Raad vir die Uitvoerende Kunste en die Raad van Trustees van die Suid-Afrikaanse Kunsmuseum en het selfs op sy dag 'n bietjie toneel gespeel. Een van die boeiendste fasette van sy lewe is sy vriendskap met belangrike skrywers en joernaliste - Boerneef, D.J. Opperman, Piet Cillie en Izak de Villiers - waaroor daar in hierdie boek meer vertel word.

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.

The Untold Story of the African American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race: Set amid the civil rights movement, the never-before-told true story of NASA's African-American female mathematicians who played a crucial role in America's space program. Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as 'Human Computers', calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white counterparts, these 'colored computers' used pencil and paper to write the equations that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Moving from World War II through NASA's golden age, touching on the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the women's rights movement, Hidden Figures interweaves a rich history of mankind's greatest adventure with the intimate stories of five courageous women whose work forever changed the world.

Don and Mimi Galvin seemed to be living the American dream. After World War II, Don's work with the Air Force brought them to Colorado, where their twelve children perfectly spanned the baby boom: the oldest born in 1945, the youngest in 1965. In those years, there was an established script for a family like the Galvins - aspiration, hard work, upward mobility, domestic harmony - and they worked hard to play their parts. But behind the scenes was a different story: psychological breakdown, sudden shocking violence, hidden abuse. By the mid-1970s, six of the ten Galvin boys, one after the other, were diagnosed as schizophrenic. How could all this happen to one family?
What took place inside the house on Hidden Valley Road was so extraordinary that the Galvins became one of the first families to be studied by the National Institutes of Mental Health. Their story offers a shadow history of the science of schizophrenia, from the era of institutionalization, lobotomy, and the schizophrenogenic mother, to the search for genetic markers for the disease, always amidst profound disagreements about the nature of the illness itself. And unbeknownst to the Galvins, samples of their DNA informed decades of genetic research that continues today, offering paths to treatment, prediction, and even eradication of the disease for future generations.
With clarity and compassion, bestselling and award-winning author Robert Kolker uncovers one family's unforgettable legacy of suffering, love and hope.

Hierdie boek is die kroniek van 'n ma se reis ná die selfdood van haar 19-jarige dogter, Jessica. Dit bereis die intense fases van rou en verlies. Dié reis is verweef met haar eie fisiese reise na Suidoos-Asië en ander soms ongewone bestemmings. Jesse laat geen brief agter nie. Ma en dogter was na aan mekaar, al twee hoogs kreatief en passievol. Matty gaan op reis om huis te hou met haar smart. In dagboekinskrywings praat sy met Jess, probeer sy sin maak en probeer sy bo alles haar dogter se besluit en dood eer soos sy haar lewe geëer het. Sy vind troos in boeke en kunsmuseums. Dis 'n aanhoudende gesprek; liries en kreatief. Dis fragmentaries soos ʼn spieël wat versplinter het, met baie lig tussen die skerwe.
Die manuskrip is in drie dele: Die eerste gedeelte handel oor die onmiddellike nadraai van haar kind se selfdood, dan 'n verslag van die skrywer se 'gap year' in Maleisië waar Jessica haar onsigbare reismaat is, ten slotte is sy terug by die huis, stoei sy met borskanker en versorg sy haar 98-jarige ma tot dié se dood.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND COSMOPOLITAN. John Lewis, who at age twenty-five marched in Selma, Alabama, and was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, was a visionary and a man of faith. Drawing on decades of wide-ranging interviews with Lewis, Jon Meacham writes of how this great-grandson of a slave and son of an Alabama tenant farmer was inspired by the Bible and his teachers in nonviolence, Reverend James Lawson and Martin Luther King, Jr., to put his life on the line in the service of what Abraham Lincoln called 'the better angels of our nature.' From an early age, Lewis learned that nonviolence was not only a tactic but a philosophy, a biblical imperative, and a transforming reality. At the age of four, Lewis, ambitious to become a minister, practiced by preaching to his family's chickens. When his mother cooked one of the chickens, the boy refused to eat it--his first act, he wryly recalled, of nonviolent protest. Integral to Lewis's commitment to bettering the nation was his faith in humanity and in God--and an unshakable belief in the power of hope. Meacham calls Lewis 'as important to the founding of a modern and multiethnic twentieth- and twenty-first-century America as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and Samuel Adams were to the initial creation of the Republic itself in the eighteenth century.' A believer in the injunction that one should love one's neighbor as oneself, Lewis was arguably a saint in our time, risking limb and life to bear witness for the powerless in the face of the powerful. In many ways he brought a still-evolving nation closer to realizing its ideals, and his story offers inspiration and illumination for Americans today who are working for social and political change.

Die memoires van 'n randeier Herman Lategan word wyd gerespekteer as joernalis, en is beide beroemd én berug vir sy uitgesprokenheid en kwinkslae oor alles onder die son. In Hoerkind vertel hy sy lewensverhaal uit die hart uit, sonder doekies omdraai. Hy is een warm Februarienag in 1964 in 'n losieshuis in Kaapstad verwek - buite die eg. Van jongs af het hy soos 'n weggooimens gevoel, want hy is deur grootmense wat die lewe op onvaste voet betree het, van die een stel hande na die ander aangegee. Op 13 beland hy in die kloue van 'n geslepe pedofiel, 'n bekende Afrikaanse koerantman in daardie jare. Pas na sy 18de verjaarsdag, wanneer sy molesteerder met hom klaar is, word Herman sonder seremonie voor die deur van sy vervreemde alkoholis-pa afgelaai. In sy tienerjare bevriend hy Afrikaanse digters soos Sheila Cussons, Ina Rousseau, Barend J. Toerien en Casper Schmidt. Ná skool doen hy sy diensplig, maar word oneervol ontslaan en kom hy in New York aan, waar hy vir Andy Warhol op straat agtervolg en met 'n “smorgasbord van eendagsvlinders” kattemaai. Terug in Suid-Afrika maak Herman opgang as joernalis wat na die wydste hoeke van die wêreld reis. As volwassene voer hy 'n stryd met drank en dwelms en is 'n ruk lank haweloos. En vir menige werkgewer word hy die nagmerrie wat hulle die ergste vrees. Hoerkind is 'n aangrypende relaas oor verlies én oorwinning wat jou sal laat lag, en jou hart 'n paar keer breek. Jy sal jou kop skud oor die wreedheid van 'n wêreld waar mense aan mekaar uitgelewer is, maar jy sal verwonderd staan oor die omvang van goedheid, juis omdat mense op mekaar aangewese is. As 'n outobiografie is die boek met verbasende openhartigheid geskryf en geen doekies word oor die skrywer se persoonlike lewe of gay-wees omgedraai nie. Verskeie bekende en selfs beroemde figure uit die media- en vermaaklikheidswêreld maak hul verskyning in die boek wat meesleurend, hoogs vermaaklik en kompromisloos eerlik is. Oor die jare skryf Herman vir oor die 50 tydskrifte, koerante en webblaaie, onder meer Vogue Entertaining + Travel, Time Out, House and Leisure, Cape Style, Mail & Guardian, Vrye Weekblad en Rapport. Sy rubrieke is in twee bundels byeengebring: Binnekring van spookasems en Opstokers, fopdossers en tweegatjakkalse, en 'n handvol gedigte en kortverhale het ook verskyn. Herman het vir vyf jaar vir e.tv gewerk en vir 'n dekade insetsels vir etlike radiostasies soos FMR en Cape Talk gelewer.
