Penguin Random House SA (PRHSA) is proud to announce that Prof. Tim Noakes will co-write his next Banting book with PRHSA authors Bernadine Douglas and Bridgette Allan. The Banting Pocket Guide will be published in partnership with The Noakes Foundation (TNF) early in 2017.
Penguin Random House will be publishing Marita van der Vyver’s thirteenth novel, You Lost Me, early in 2017 in English and Afrikaans. The author, who lives in France, will be in South Africa to promote the novel in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria in March and May 2017. Readers will also have the opportunity to see her in Stellenbosch during Woordfees, and at the Franschhoek Literary Festival.
After much interest in the UK, publisher Jacaranda Books have acquired the rights to publish South African author Masande Nsthanga’s acclaimed literary novel The Reactive in the UK and across the Commonwealth. An American edition of the novel was published earlier this year, and German translation rights have also been sold.
The Caine-prize nominated author’s debut novel is a poignant, life-affirming story about secrets, memory, chemical abuse and family, and the redemption that comes from facing what haunts us most.
