In April 2013 a global breaking-news story surfaced on social media and in the world press, and rapidly gathered momentum. A South African man had fallen overboard in the night during a storm in remote Indonesian waters, without anyone else on board realising. Eight hours later a frantic search was underway. The incident caught the world's attention as readers were instantly transported into the terror of the moment - imagine being left alone, 100 kilometres out to sea in the middle of a storm, watching your friends sail into the distance... Had he been dealt a fraction more bad luck, Brett would have died immediately.
According to the experts, he should have died within 10 to 14 hours. But he chose not to die. Instead for 28-and-a-half hours Brett Archibald endured - the ocean, the elements, the creatures of the deep, and his own inner demons. Alone: The Search For Brett Archibald is the incredible but true story of what it takes to defy needle-in-a-haystack odds and survive what should have been certain death. Outdoor savvy, astonishing imagination, mental toughness, a refusal to give up hope and a canny rescuer with an unbelievable background ultimately saw him through.

Most of all this is a story of the power of the human spirit that defies rational explanation.

I stand in front of the mirror as I remind myself that I don't have to wear the uniform anymore. I don't have to dress myself in men's attire. I can grow out my nails, and paint them with polish. I am finally free to have my ears pierced. I can speak in the voice that I've spent so many hours cultivating with my speech therapist. I don't have to hide my disgust anymore at being called 'boet' or 'sir'. I no longer have to tolerate any references to my deadname.

Anastacia Tomson has fought hard for her right to live, held back for decades by a body that didn't fit, and an identity that never belonged to her. At first, it had seemed impossible - like transition was some romantic, impractical ideal that was incompatible with reality. But now, after five months of hormone therapy, countless sessions of painful laser hair removal, multiple appointments with doctors and psychologists, it is very much a reality ...

Born into an orthodox Jewish family in Johannesburg and brought up as a boy, Anastacia was never sure how much of her conflicted sense of self could be blamed on her often troubled family life and strict upbringing. It would take her nearly 30 years, a great deal of questioning, and a bravery she could never have imagined, to find the peace and selfacceptance she had always sought.

ANASTACIA TOMSON grew up in Johannesburg and graduated as a medical doctor from the University of Pretoria.
She has worked as a general practitioner both in the public and private sectors, as well as having a background in freelance journalism.
Anastacia has a passion for activism and advocacy, with a specific interest in promoting access to healthcare for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
She is a vocal feminist and strives to further the visibility and understanding of transgender issues at
every opportunity.

In her much anticipated memoir, Sisonke Msimang writes about her exile childhood in Zambia and Kenya, young adulthood and college years in North America, and returning to South Africa in the euphoric 1990s. She reflects candidly on her discontent and disappointment with present-day South Africa but also on her experiences of family, romance, and motherhood, with the novelist's talent for character and pathos.
Militant young comrades dance off the pages of the 1970s Lusaka she invokes, and the heady and naive days of just-democratic South Africa in the 1990s are as vividly painted. Her memoir is at heart a chronicle of a coming-of-age, and while well-known South African political figures appear in these pages, it is an intimate story, a testament to family bonds and sisterhood.

Sisonke Msimang is one of the most assured and celebrated voices commenting on the South African present - often humorously; sometimes deeply movingly - and this book launches her to an even broader audience.

Toe hy 21 jaar gelede vir die eerste keer in Parys aankom, sou die kunstenaar Louis Jansen van Vuuren hom nooit kon indink dat hy eendag 'n château in die Franse platteland sou besit nie.

In Amper Frans vertel hy op skreesnaakse wyse hoe hy alles wat Frans is ontdek en beproef het - daar is neusoptrekkerige kelners, statige hertoginne, etlike botsings met die berugte Franse burokrasie en natuurlike talle faux pas in sy gebrekkige Frans.

Om die vervalle château saam met sy lewensmaat, Hardy Olivier, in 'n boetiekhotel te omskep het groot geduld en uithouvermoë geverg. Talle lesse is op die harde manier geleer. Een daarvan is dat vier verwarmers geensins genoeg is om 'n hele château te verhit nie en dit sal jou dae lank sonder elektrisiteit laat.

Louis vertel ook van kaskenades met hulle gaste en hul eie avonture soos hulle die land platry agter vlooimarkte en avontuur aan. Hy vermeng stories oor hul lewe in Frankryk met brokkies geskiedenis en fassinerende inligting oor eg Franse tradisies.

Dit is 'n moet vir Frankofiele!

"'I have done some really brave things in my life. I, too, have done some really stupid ones. The line between these is precariously thin and I have far too often crossed it . . .'

Casey B. Dolan - actress, television presenter, entertainer, DJ, entrepreneur and singer - is perhaps best known for being voted FHM South Africa's sexiest woman in 2000. In this no-holds-barred biography she unveils just what it is like to be that woman, the one on every magazine cover. A quirky, honest appraisal of life on the other side of the lens and why being the woman every man wants doesn't necessarily get you what you want, especially when it comes to relationships.

A surprising, funny, heartfelt story of bad relationships, broken dreams and one woman's determination to succeed against all the odds. The best kind of biography - Casey B. Dolan will make you laugh out loud; she will make you cry your heart out."

The intimate and personal story behind the man who tried to kill Verwoerd but didn't succeed.
“The raucous wail of sirens pierced the quiet Saturday afternoon, making me drop my book and rush outside to see what drama was taking place. A fleet of cars, their sirens screaming, roared along Oxford Road two hundred yards from our house. I stood on the lawn wondering what on earth it was because sirens were rarely heard near our home. I went back inside; the commotion was over. But within half an hour our telephone started ringing non-stop . . .”

9 April 1960 was the day that changed Susie Cazenove's life - the day her father, David Pratt, shot the Prime Minister of South Africa, Dr Hendrik Verwoerd. Verwoerd, commonly known as the architect of apartheid, didn't die, but Pratt's family lived with the legacy of his action.

A chance encounter with the late David Rattray of Fugitive's Drift led Cazenove to revisit the memories of that terrible day. With Rattray's encouragement she put pen to paper to describe the extraordinary events of that day and its consequences. Part family memoir, part ode to the settlement of Johannesburg, Cazenove skilfully weaves her family history and the mood in South Africa in the 1950s and 60s as a background to what may have led her father, a farmer and gentle man, to commit a treasonous act.

Tumi Morake modelled her public persona on her mother, a charming and contentious woman who used her big, bold voice to say what others were afraid to utter. It's the personality that Tumi took on stage in the mostly male space of stand-up comedy, and the one that gave her the courage to join a white, Afrikaans radio station and comment about apartheid on air.

But there's only so much you can find out about Tumi from the stage, the screen and the internet. And Then Mama Said… is the voice of Tumi in private, as well as a behind-thescenes perspective of a pioneering South African star who has been both deeply loved and viciously hated by her audiences.

Tumi gets frank about the race row at Jacaranda FM; the Jaguar car accident that cyber bullies said she deserved; the body-shaming she endured on the set of Our Perfect Wedding; and her tumultuous relationship with her beloved husband. Throughout her story, she carries the voice of her mother, and with it the indispensable life lessons that made her who she is today.

'n Buitengewone en uitstekende manuskrip.” - Prof. Gerrit Olivier

André P. Brink en die spel van liefde is die heel eerste biografie van 'n Suid-Afrikaanse skrywer wat gedurende sy leeftyd in dieselfde asem as Gabriel García Márquez, Peter Carey en Aleksandr Soltzjenitsen genoem is, en wie se romans in meer as 30 tale vertaal is.
In Leon de Kock se langverwagte biografie word Brink se persoonlike dagboeke en joernale as die belangrikste bronmateriaal hanteer. Brink het meer as 50 jaar lank sy ervarings en gedagtes pligsgetrou opgeteken: hierdie notaboeke, waartoe De Kock eksklusief toegang verkry het, word nou vir die eerste maal bekend gemaak.
Die spel van liefde is 'n omvangryke biografie wat die leser 'n openhartige, onverbloemde blik gee op Brink se gedagtes en gevoelens - oor homself én ander. Brink beskryf die hoogte- en laagtepunte van sy vyf huwelike asook sy verskeie verhoudings met 'n groot aantal vroue - 'n onderwerp wat hy in sy memoir, 'n Vurk in die pad, maar slegs vlugtig bespreek. Gedurende sy leeftyd het Brink hom nie net teen die politieke bestel verset nie, maar veral ook teen tradisionele seksuele sedes.
In hierdie biografie van 'n skrywer aan wie die Nobelprys vir letterkunde byna toegeken is, bekyk De Kock Brink se persoonlike, outobiografiese aantekeninge vanuit 'n kritiese, literêre oogpunt. Daarmee saam vergelyk hy die dagboeke met akademiese en ander, alledaagse bronne, waaronder getuienisse deur Brink se vriende, familie, eggenote en minnaresse. Die spel van liefde is 'n unieke, belangrike toevoeging tot die Suid-Afrikaanse lettere, maar veral ook tot navorsing oor Brink se lewe en skryfwerk.
