Killing for Profit by Julian Rademeyer

This is a tale of greed and corruption, of an increasingly desperate battle to save from extinction an animal that has existed for over 50 million years. Well respected, investigative journalist, Julian Rademeyer follows the bloody trail of the syndicates, poachers, smugglers, hunters and hustlers from the frontlines of the rhino wars to the medicine markets of Vietnam, and into the lair of a wildlife-trafficking kingpin in Laos.

If you read only one book this year, you want it to be this one.

Rat Roads by Jacques Pauw

This extraordinary book gives a human face to some of the most tumultuous events in recent African history. It chronicles the remarkable journey of Kennedy Gihana, a young Tutsi who survived the genocide in Rwanda and walked thousands of kilometres to South Africa.

Rat Roads is a searing story of hardship and survival, and an unforgettable tale of courage and triumph.

100 Memorable Sporting Moments by Peter Joyce

South Africans are sports mad, and over many years of competing, the country’s sportsmen and women have generated a wealth of memories.

This beautifully illustrated book traces those events that forever live in our minds. 'Highlights include the triumphs of Josiah Thugwane, Penny Heyns and Chad Le Clos’ Olympic success, but the book doesn’t skirt the lowlights either.

100 Moments that Mattered by Peter Joyce

Presented in bite-size chunks and written in an accessible style, this beautifully illustrated selection of 100 events that shaped the nature of South African society over the centuries, provides a coherent and colourful picture of the nation’s history. From early landings and bloody wars, to medical breakthroughs and sporting triumphs, this book gives a fascinating glimpse into our country’s history.

The Art of Losing by Luke Alfred

Since South Africa’s readmission to world cricket in 1991, the Proteas have played in six World Cups and been knocked out in all of them. Luke Alfred is well placed to delve into why this should be. He was a sports journalist for 18 years and was senior cricket writer at the Sunday Times. 

This book will ruffle feathers, but will also attempt to explain the ‘choker’ tag that has become so widespread.

Werfsonde deur Kleinboer

Werfsonde is ’n voortsetting van die roman Kontrei waarmee Kleinboer in 2004 groot omstredenheid veroorsaak het en waarvoor hy die Jan Rabie Rapport-prys ontvang het.

Dit vertel die verhaal van ʼn Afrikaanse man wat saam met sy Zoeloe-vrou Lungi en haar seun Jomo ʼn lewe probeer uitkerf. Dis ‘n skokkende eerlike portret van stedelike lewe in post-apartheid Suid-Afrika en 'n vlymskerp uitbeelding van die veranderende gesig van 'n stad.
