Homebru Podcasts, ‘meet’ the authors in their own words…

Exclusive Books’ Homebru is pulling out all the stops and they’re not telling the same old story.

Instead, they’re bringing you lots of new and local stories with author discussion podcasts by Jonathan Ancer, Lerato Sibanda and Dan Dewes.

‘Exclusive Books’ Homebru is a celebration of the diversity that is local writing, covering fresh perspectives on history, sharing never-told-before personal stories, challenging established views, and excavating the trough of political policy,’ says Batya Bricker, General Manager Books and Brands Exclusive Books

The podcasts will focus on the rich memoir selection within Homebru. The stories of both the extraordinary and ordinary South Africans that add colour and depth to our society’s narrative, the podcasts will start during July and run till November to allow time to cover as many excellent South African authors as possible. There will be a new episode every two weeks, starting with episode one on July 8 at 1pm.

In this first podcast about Ivan Johnson’s gritty memoir But He Speaks So Wellhe relates his identity crisis as he comes of age on the Cape Flats amid the turmoil of The Struggle. Joining the lily¬-white advertising industry, he ghosts from group to group, fitting in everywhere, but belonging nowhere.
