In tonight’s Exclusive Books Cover to Cover online book show, Eusebius McKaiser chats to Moe Shaik about The ANC Spy Bible and Andrew Harding about These Are Not Gentle People.
Eusebius’s adds ‘Two of the best books about South African history and politics written over the past ten years are Moe Shaik’s The ANC Spy Bible and Andrew Harding’s These Are Not Gentle People. One is a painful but important memoir of fighting apartheid in underground ANC structures, including enduring torture in detention. The other is about murders just outside Parys that cause turmoil in multiple ways in the town. Both books illuminate our past and present. In this episode, I sit down with the authors to get the backstory to their literary achievements.’
Joanne Joseph then follows with a highlights package featuring five titles from the Exclusive Books Homebru campaign … Unbecoming by Joanne Fedler, Still Life by Sarah Winman, Robert by Robert Hamblin, Women Evolve by Sarah Jakes Roberts and Yellow Means Stay edited by Allwell Uwazuruike, Confidence Uwazuruike and Muna-chim Amah.
