  • Fire Walker

    R500

    Far more than being about a single artwork, this book participates in the myriad conversations and debates on the meaning of public art. The essays prise open critical questions about public space in Johannesburg; Oliver Barstow’s interviews with the various collaborators on the sculpture reveal the complexities and challenges of creating such a massive work in so short a time; and the images by John Hodgkiss of the making of the sculpture, alongside two photo essays suggest the metaphorical power of Fire Walker as well as the fragile hold of street vendors over their small share of city space.

  • Quite Footsteps

    R140

    Quite Footsteps explores moral themes relating to political and social change in South Africa. An obscene clamour that the poet sees as eviscerating our country’s humanity becomes the catalyst for an excoriating attack on a time that “renders everything as matters of abuse”, and a passionate demand that we find in ourselves – for ourselves, and in honour of the spirits of the dead – the capacity for the humane. This major work by one of South Africa’s poets will trouble every conscience, even as it revives our faltering hope for a healed nation.

  • The Swimming Lesson and Other Stories

    R160

    A major strength of this collection is its precisely noted and rendered detail. Whatever the themes-whether the dilemmas of being differently abled; trapped in lower-income constraints; or born female in an abusively gendered world-they are relayed with authenticity. There is a strongly visceral component to the stories, with the body and its various vulnerabilities, captivities, and seductions featuring in many of them. Some pieces broaden out, both creatively and topically, to explore less obvious facets of staying afloat.
