Belly Of Fire - An Anthology Of Hope, Forgiveness, Redemption And Reawakening (Hardcover): Shafinaaz Hassim Belly Of Fire - An Anthology Of Hope, Forgiveness, Redemption And Reawakening (Hardcover)
Shafinaaz Hassim
R49 Discovery Miles 490 In stock

Belly Of Fire is a metaphor for the anxiety and fear that we hold within ourselves; the voices of those who are disempowered by racism, poverty, war and gendered abuse, voices that remain silenced, are housed as fire in our bellies.

Themes of abuse, xenophobia, female genital mutilation, reawakening, are unpacked here in a collection of seven reflective, compelling stories intertwined with no more than thirteen contemporary poems that bring out the essence of the themes developed in the narratives.

R485 R404 Discovery Miles 4 040 Save R81 (17%) In stock

If you like true stories about real people, are intrigued by serendipity, curious about curiosities, or maybe you are a collector yourself, then this book is for you.

The collecting and researching of any collectable is an intense and pleasurable pastime. The author’s passion for more than half a century has been for collecting handwritten, original letters, antique documents, manuscripts, old share certificates, fire insurance policies, photographs and maps.

The writers of these words on paper include kings and queens, presidents and prime ministers, admirals and generals, actors and authors, judges and prisoners, philosophers, statesmen, scientists, and sportsmen. Some were famous, some infamous, some important, others less so. Many you will know about; with others, only their names may be familiar. There’s Admiral Nelson, and the Duke of Wellington; there are queens Elizabeth I and II and kings George III, IV and VI; presidents Eisenhower, Kruger, and Mandela are here; prime ministers Botha, Hertzog and Smuts; explorers Scott and Shackleton. There’s Faraday and De la Rey, and many more, including two controversial giants of history – Napoleon and Rhodes.

The chapters need not be read in any set order, although there is an underlying thread linking them to the life of the author that enabled this eclectic collection to evolve in the way it did.

Die Laughing is the fourth of the Short.Sharp.Stories Awards annual anthologies, produced in conjunction with the National Arts Festival. Following 2013’s successful Bloody Satisfied, 2014’s Adults Only which won the coveted NIHSS Award (National Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences), and 2015’s Incredible Journey from which two stories were nominated for the Caine Prize, we bring you Die Laughing, an anthology of stories of wit, satire and humour. Here, writers have poked a little fun at our crazy country, at our politics, our idiosyncrasies, our down-right ridiculous habits. A number of stories look on the lighter, brighter side of life, and, of course, dark humour is included too - irony, satire and tragi-comedy, all with a strong sense of the South African setting. The aim of the Short.Sharp.Stories awards is to showcase South African fiction-writing talent. The prize money offered, totalling R35,000, is sponsored by the National Arts Festival and ensures entries of an excellent standard. With a foreword by Evita Bezuidenhout, introduction by Darrel Bristow-Bovey, and stories by prize-winning authors as well as new voices, DIE LAUGHING promises to be another stand-out anthology.

Whether looking back to a troubled past or welcoming a hopeful future, the powerful voices of Indigenous women across North America resound in this book. In the same style as the best-selling Dreaming in Indian, #NotYourPrincess presents an eclectic collection of poems, essays, interviews, and art that combine to express the experience of being a Native woman. Stories of abuse, humiliation, and stereotyping are countered by the voices of passionate women making themselves heard and demanding change. Sometimes angry, often reflective, but always strong, the women in this book will give teen readers insight into the lives of women who, for so long, have been virtually invisible.

Bernard Odendaal

Woorde, uit die mond of skryfhand van mense wat hulle storie ken, boei Bernard Odendaal so lank hy kan onthou. As poesiedosent in Bloemfontein en, later, skryfskooldirekteur op Potchefstroom kon hy sy brood op grond van sy belangstelling verdien. Taal lewe egter ook, miskien veral, buite boeke - in die interaksie tussen karakters van vlees en bloed. Toe redakteurs by die webtuiste Versindaba en die koerante Bloemnuus en Volksblad hom dus vra om kort lekkerlees-bydraes oor sy aldagbelewenisse te begin skryf, was huiwer of weier vir Bernard buite die kwessie. Hoewel selde streng feitelik van aard, is die kort vertellings, sketse en besinnings in hierdie bundel almal gebaseer op plekke, mense, vraagstukke en voorvalle wat oor die skrywer se lewenspad gekom het. Wat taal (kan) doen, of wat buite die reikwydte van taal is, vorm 'n draad wat deur die bundel vleg.

'Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equals four. If that is granted, all else follows.' This selection of George Orwell's writing, from both his novels and non-fiction, gathers together his thoughts on the subject of truth. It ranges from discussion of personal honesty and morality, to freedom of speech and political propaganda. Orwell's unique clarity of thought and illuminating scepticism provide the perfect defence against our post-truth world of fake news and confusion. 'The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.'

It's the stuff of cliche to describe South Africa as a land of infinite landscapes and dramatic contrasts. It's even harder to capture those landscapes in words. This title showcases scenes of "the beloved country" as described by South Africa's most brilliant writers, making for a fresh, colourful collection that is both timeless and contemporary. Ranging right through history, from the firelight tales of the first storytellers to modern voices on the web, this title encompasses the brilliant kaleidoscope of our local scribes - from drama to poetry, from revered names to controversial voices, from hard-hitting journalism to lyrical meditations. Take a trip round the country, exploring world-famous landmarks and forgotten corners - jive in Sophiatown, shelter from the scorching Karoo sun on the stoep of Schreiner's African farm, listen to the wind (and ghosts) in the grass of old battlefields, watch fishermen bring their catch into Kalk Bay harbour or paddle down the Orange River with desert on both sides. Above all, it's the people who live in these landscapes, and their complex and often tragic history, that add dynamism and poignancy to these extracts. This glimpse of rural, urban, outer and inner landscapes makes for a fascinating introduction to local writing, as well as a treat for those who love armchair travel.

The tourist shops of Prague sell dozens of items commemorating Franz Kafka. You can drink a latte in the Cafe Kafka, add sugar to it from a packet with Kafka's face on it, and then light your cigarette from a box of Kafka matches.
Franz Kafka died in obscurity in 1924, publishing only a handful of bizarre stories in little-known literary magazines. Yet today he persists in our collective imaginations. Even those who have never read any of Kafka's fiction describe their tribulations with the Department of Motor Vehicles as being Kafkaesque.
"Kafkaesque" explores the fiction of generations of authors inspired by Kafka's work. These dystopic, comedic, and ironic tales include T. C. Boyle's roadside garage that is a never-ending trial, Philip Roth's alternate history in which Kafka immigrates to America to date his aunt, Jorge Luis Borges's labyrinthine public lottery that redefines reality, Carol Emshwiller's testimony by the first female to earn the right to call herself a "man," and Paul Di Filippo's unfamiliar Kafka--journalist by day, costumed crime-fighter by night.
Also included is Kafka's classic story "The Hunger Artist," appearing both in a brand-new translation and in an illustrated version by legendary cartoonist R. Crumb ("Fritz the Cat"). Additionally, each author discusses Kafka's writing, its relevance, its personal influence, and Kafka's enduring legacy.
