In her own words, Ruth Bader Ginsburg offers an intimate look at her life and career, though an extraordinary series of conversations with the head of the National Constitution Center. Conversations with RBG is a remarkable and unique book, an informal portrait of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, drawing on a series of her conversations with Jeffrey Rosen, starting in the 1990s and continuing through the Trump era. Rosen, a veteran legal journalist, scholar, and president of the National Constitution Center, shares with us the justice's observations on a variety of topics, and her intellect, compassion, sense of humor, and humanity shine through. The affection they have for each other as friends is apparent in their banter and in their shared love for the Constitution and for opera. With Justice Ginsburg's approval, Rosen has collected her wisdom from their many conversations in which she discusses the future of the Supreme Court and Roe v. Wade, her favorite dissents, the cases she would most like to see overruled, the #MeToo movement, how to be a good listener, how to lead a productive and compassionate life. These frank exchanges illuminate the steely determination, self-mastery, and wit that have inspired women and men of all ages to embrace the “Notorious RBG.” Whatever the topic, Justice Ginsburg always has something interesting and often surprising to say. And while few of us will ever have the opportunity to chat with her face-to-face, Jeffrey Rosen brings us by her side as never before. Conversations with RBG is a deeply felt portrait of an American hero.

To celebrate her 14-year clean and sober birthday, Ferguson organises to take a R3.2 million Ferrari California out on a test drive for the day. Twenty minutes before she returns the car, she is involved in a spectacular car crash, during which she experiences a near-death collision. The crash is a catalyst for a series of life-changing events. Over the following months her long-term relationship implodes in a heart-ripping showdown of betrayal and deception. She is faced with a litany of legal and financial nightmares as a result of the Ferrari being written off, while certain members of the dog-eat-dog motoring journo industry relish in her downfall. After she admits herself to a clinic to address her meltdown, in her trademark gritty tell-it-all and often hilarious style, she interrogates the controversial pharma-whore psychiatric industry as she is diagnosed and medicated over her three-week stay. Ultimately Crashed sees Ferguson slowly coming to grips with the meaninglessness of outward material success as she embarks on a painful journey of introspection in search of intangible inner peace and self love in a crazy out of control world.

In this exquisite story of family, food, grief, and endurance, Michelle Zauner proves herself far more than a dazzling singer, songwriter, and guitarist. With humor and heart, she tells of growing up the only Asian-American kid at her school in Eugene, Oregon; of struggling with her mother's particular, high expectations of her; of a painful adolescence; of treasured months spent in her grandmother's tiny apartment in Seoul, where she and her mother would bond, late at night, over heaping plates of food. As she grew up, moving to the east coast for college, finding work in the restaurant industry, performing gigs with her fledgling band and meeting the man who would become her husband. Her Koreanness began to feel ever more distant, even as she found the life she wanted to live. It was her mother's diagnosis of terminal pancreatic cancer, when Michelle was twenty-five, that forced a reckoning with her identity and brought her to reclaim the gifts of taste, language, and history her mother had given her.Vivacious and plainspoken, lyrical and honest, Michelle Zauner's voice is as radiantly alive on the page as it is onstage. Rich with intimate anecdotes that will resonate widely, Crying in H Mart is a book to cherish, share, and reread.

Avonture in ander wêrelde en geheimnisvolle stories - dit het die jong Clive Staples Lewis gefassineer. Hoewel hy nog maar 'n klein seuntjie was, kon hy vir ure lank stories sit en uitdink van diere wat lewendig geword het en soos mense gelewe en gepraat het. Sy skoolloopbaan was nie met rose besaai nie, maar hy het groot geword om die wêreld se bekende skrywer, C.S. Lewis te word - hoewel hyself verkies het om as Jack bekend te staan.
Om agter die geheim van hierdie naamsverandering te kom asook agter die idees agter sy stories, sal jy hierdie lewensverhaal van een van die mees geliefde moderne skrywers moet lees.
Lewis se bekendste kinderboeke is die Verhale van Narnia. As jy hulle geniet het, sal jy graag wil hoor hoe dit gekom het dat hulle geskryf is. J.R.R. Tolkien het elke hoofstuk eers gelees en daarop kommentaar gelewer, netsoos hy elke hoofstuk van The Lord of the Rings voor publikasie aan Lewis voorgelees het.
Lewis het ook 'n gawe gehad om vir grootmense te skrywe, en van die beste boeke in die Engelse taal kom uit sy pen. Daarbenewens was hy 'n populêre programaanbieder oor die radio. Boonop was hy 'n professor in letterkunde eers by Oxford en later by Cambridge Universiteite.
Sy dood in 1963 is vergeet omdat dit dieselfde dag was as die sluipmoord op Pres. John F. Kennedy van Amerika, maar sy invloed vir geslagte van volwassenes en kinders, lewe voort in sy boeke.

The 53rd ANC National Conference held in Maungang saw the return of Cyril Ramaphosa to the centre stage of national politics. To the great surprise of almost all South Africans, Ramaphosa was elected Deputy President of the ANC. One can't deny that Ramaphosa is one of the most popular political figures in South Africa. He is widely credited with playing a major role in the negotiations that led to the democratic settlement in South Africa and devising South Africa's Constitution.

“Cyril,” says Anthony Butler, “is the Forrest Gump of South African political history.” By this Butler means that Ramaphosa has been present in the foreground of virtually every important moment in the modern history of his country.

This commanding and fully updated and revised edition features a new chapter from the author covering the most recent and significant developments in the mogul's life including his candidacy for Deputy President, his role in Mangaung, and the controvercial events surrounding Lonmin and the Marikana mines. Based on rich interviews with many of the subject's friends and contemporaries, it marries the historical context and the individual life in a way that brings Ramaphosa fully to life.

Barbara Hepworth sculpted outdoors and Janet Frame wore earmuffs as she worked to block out noise. Kate Chopin wrote with her six children 'swarming around her' whereas the artist Rosa Bonheur filled her bedroom with the sixty birds that inspired her work. Louisa May Alcott wrote so vigorously , skipping sleep and meals, that she had to learn to write with her left hand to give her cramped right hand a break. From Isak Dinesen subsisting on oysters, champagne and amphetamines, to Isabel Allende's insistence that she begins each new book on 8 January, here are the working routines of over 140 brilliant female painters, composers, sculptors, writers, filmmakers and performers. Filled with details of the large and small choices these women made, Daily Rituals Women at Work is a source of fascination and inspiration.

Drawing on Nelson Mandela's own unfinished memoir, Dare Not Linger is the remarkable story of his presidency told in his own words and those of distinguished South African writer Mandla Langa 'I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.' Long Walk to Freedom.
In 1994, Nelson Mandela became the first president of democratic South Africa. Five years later, he stood down. In that time, he and his government wrought the most extraordinary transformation, turning a nation riven by centuries of colonialism and apartheid into a fully functioning democracy in which all South Africa's citizens, black and white, were equal before the law.
Dare Not Linger is the story of Mandela's presidential years, drawing heavily on the memoir he began to write as he prepared to finish his term of office, but was unable to finish. Now, the acclaimed South African writer, Mandla Langa, has completed the task using Mandela's unfinished draft, detailed notes that Mandela made as events were unfolding and a wealth of previously unseen archival material. With a prologue by Mandela's widow, Graça Machel, the result is a vivid and inspirational account of Mandela's presidency, a country in flux and the creation of a new democracy. It tells the extraordinary story of the transition from decades of apartheid rule and the challenges Mandela overcome to make a reality of his cherished vision for a liberated South Africa.

First published in Afrikaans as Als is nie net swart en wit nie (Not everything is black and white), this expanded memoir probes some of the most pivotal issues facing South Africa today: race, 'othering', unremembering, identity, gangsterism, addiction, and the process of making meaning of a society that has become unhinged from its moorings.

The writer walks with the reader through a lion-hearted personal lens and through the purgatory of his travelogue, which starts 15 years before his birth in the tiny Eastern Cape hamlet of Breidbach. He dramatically recounts how his German grandfather robbed him of his grandparents.

Premised on that epoch-making deed, he takes the reader on a painful journey of uprooting, an agonising coming of age, and the intricacies of navigating cultural belongings and a bloodline concoction. Next, he plummets horrifyingly into a netherworld of alcoholism culminating in a spine-chilling desperate act.

On this treacherous odyssey to restoration and redemption, the veils of darkness lift, and he now lives in a world that is not stark black and white but where the grey mitigates the storms.

Hierdie merkwaardige mens het 'n ikoon geword vir Suid-Afrikaners. De la Rey was 'n ware leier: eerbaar, een wat gesonde verstand aan die dag lê en nie oor mag begaan is nie maar oor mense.

Joanne Hichens lost first her mother, then, in quick succession, her husband, her father and her mother-in-law - two deaths anticipated, two coming as the worst kind of shock. In this memoir of grief and recovery, she writes with honesty and humour of death, our 'constant companion', and the stumbling journey through the country of grief. By turns searing and sparkling, her account gives compelling insight into the losses that stalk us all, while also celebrating the mainstays of life - friendship, family, and the memories of those we love and lose.

“If you have loved, lost or grieved … then this book will resonate deeply. Searching for a new place in her changed world, Joanne Hichens reminds us that especially in our darkest moments we need to embrace our vulnerability in order to find strength. Tender, courageous, compelling.”
— Tracy Going, author of Brutal Legacy
