About Random Reads

In August 2008 Random House South Africa and Struik Publishers announced their merger to create a significant new player in the African book publishing industry. The new company, known as Random House Struik (Pty) Ltd, brought together two of the country's most prominent book publishers under the leadership of Stephen Johnson.

Random House Struik (Pty) Ltd's local publishing, which promotes books written in both English and Afrikaans, is underpinned by Struik's 50-year heritage, publishing mainly non-fiction African titles under the Struik Lifestyle, Struik Nature, Struik Travel & Heritage, Zebra Press and Fernwood Press imprints. Random House SA's local imprint Umuzi, established in 2005 to mark the company's 40th anniversary in South Africa, continues to publish new voices in both fiction and non-fiction.

Struik's previous bestselling local titles include In Black and White: The Jake White Story by Jake White (Zebra Press) which sold over 200,000 copies in 2007. Umuzi's bestselling title to date is Dark Continent my Black Arse by Sihle Khumalo, closely followed by Odyssey to Freedom by George Bizos and a number of titles by popular author Antjie Krog.

The Random House Group balances this local publishing strength through its many diverse and highly respected imprints, providing Random House Struik (Pty) Ltd with internationally acclaimed authors such as James Patterson, Ian McEwan, Philip Roth, Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Bill Bryson, Richard Branson, Andy McNab, Terry Pratchett, Lee Child, Jilly Cooper, Robert Harris, Dan Brown, Chris Ryan, Mark Haddon, Philip Pullman and Jacqueline Wilson. The Group is also the international publisher of lauded South African writers such as J M Coetzee and Andr Brink, as well as Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
