There is no such thing as a “best time time read” when you’re a bibliophile but there is something to be said for curling up under a blanket with a cuppa and hot water bottle during a cold snap. We’re giving away SIX books by great local authors, three fiction and three non-fiction, to help keep the winter blues away.
Deon Meyer is not only the crime fiction doyen of South Africa, but one of our greatest exports and you can own a signed copy of his latest novel, Icarus. Zakes Mda is one of the country’s most beloved literary figures and he’s signed a copy of his great African love story, Little Suns. Alastair Bruce’s Boy on Wire is part-thriller, part-elegy and tells the story of a man who tries to remember the death of his little brother, decades ago. Alison Botha’s harrowing and brave account of her rape and one of the most brutal attempted murders in SA’s history, I Have Life, has sold 90 000 copies and is now being turned into a film. Richard Steyn’s biography, Jan Smuts, explores the life of a key statesman in the country’s early history. Eusebius McKaiser’s frank discussions on race in Run, Racist, Run, has been one of the highlights of non-fiction since it’s publication.
