“Die lang man sonder skaduwee,” so het die oumense gepraat as hulle die grondpaaie beskryf het wat oor die rug van vlaktes loop soos linte wat plase en veeposte en dorpe aan mekaar bind. Dit was ’n raaisel wat hulle vir mekaar gevra het om ’n stram geselskap aan die gang te kry.
Met diť raaisel begin Antoinette Pienaar, Afrikaanse sangeres, aktrise en radiopersoonlikheid, haar nuwe boek nŠ die verskyning van Kruidjie roer my, haar boek oor Karookruie wat sy plek as ’n klassieke werk in Afrikaans ingeneem het. Sy werk reeds vir jare in die Karoo saam met oom Johannes Willemse, legendariese Griekwa-medisyneman. Oom Johannes leer haar hoe om Karookruie te gebruik om mense se lywe en siele te genees en van heinde en ver kom besoekers om hier by hulle gesond te kom raak.
In Die lang man sonder skaduwee sit Antoinette haar roeping as geneser voort. Vol begrip en deernis word Karookruie ingespan om allerlei kwale te genees. Maar nou ondersoek sy ook die genesende krag wat in die ou stories, raaisels en rympies van die Griekwa-mense skuil, want dikwels het ’n fisieke probleem ’n emosionele oorsprong en is dit stories wat die hart kan genees. Die langman sonder skaduwee is volksbesit: waardevolle inheemse kennis liefdevol opgeteken vir lees en herlees.

The publication of James Joyce's Dubliners in 1914 was the result
of ten years battling with publishers, resisting their demands to
remove swear words, real place names and much else. Although only
twenty-four when he signed his first publishing contract for the
book, Joyce already knew its worth: to alter it in any way would
"retard the course of civilization in Ireland." Joyce's aim was to
tell the truth-- to create a work of art that would reflect life in
Ireland at the turn of the last century and by rejecting euphemism,
to reveal to the Irish their unromantic reality, which would lead
to the spiritual liberation of the country. Each of the fifteen
stories offers glimpses into the lives of ordinary Dubliners-- a
death, an encounter, an opportunity not taken, a memory rekindled -
and collectively they paint a portrait of a nation.

A sequel to the best-selling Women Who Read Are Dangerous, presenting portraits and profiles of fearless women writers past and present
Writing has not always been considered a suitable career for women. Indeed, it was once common for women authors to adopt a masculine pseudonym in order to be taken seriously. And even today, some women writers still struggle to obtain the same recognition that is given to their male counterparts. Nevertheless, women throughout the ages have overcome these obstacles to create literature of enduring importance.
This attractive book brings together paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs of some fifty outstanding women authors, from Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, and George Sand to Dorothy Parker, Simone de Beauvoir, and Toni Morrison. Each image is accompanied by an engaging commentary on the writer depicted, discussing the highlights of her career and the major themes of her work. Full of insight and inspiration, this is the perfect gift for any woman who writes.
kira-kira (kee ra kee ra): glittering; shining Glittering. That's how Katie Takeshima's sister, Lynn, makes everything seem. The sky is "kira-kira" because its color is deep but see-through at the same time. The sea is "kira-kira" for the same reason. And so are people's eyes. When Katie and her family move from a Japanese community in Iowa to the Deep South of Georgia, it's Lynn who explains to her why people stop on the street to stare. And it's Lynn who, with her special way of viewing the world, teaches Katie to look beyond tomorrow. But when Lynn becomes desperately ill, and the whole family begins to fall apart, it is up to Katie to find a way to remind them all that there is always something glittering -- "kira-kira" -- in the future.
The man who offers an insult writes it in sand; the man who knows his PROVERBS has it chiseled in gold. The Best Truths are Proverbs. You have to know a lot to know how little you know. Little Red Book of Proverbs is a treasure chest-the bottom line: if you can't convince them, confuse them: * Never forget that only dead fish swim with the stream. * If you can talk, you can sing; if you can walk, you can dance. * He who likes cherries soon learns to climb. * The gods send nuts to those who have no teeth. * When the lion shows its teeth, don't assume that it is smiling. * Deceit is a lie that wears a smile. So lets begin-make deposits in the memory bank!
