Jim is Tired of Jo’burg

R99,00
Reminiscent of Peter Abrahams’ Mine Boy, Jim is Tired of Jo’Burg exposes the reader to the challenges of urban and rural life in the South Africa of the time. Through pathos, joviality, the author takes us down the memory lane of life in the townships of South Africa in the 60s and 70s, and the choice that its people had to take – to be an urbanite or ruralite.

Once We Were Comrades

R99,00
This pitfall, plus a disconnect between the values and policies of the ARPP’s old guard and an ambitious new leader — who eventually takes the party to government in Azamata — form some of the book’s main themes. Yet, there is also much intrigue in-between. From freedom fighter Tornado Mdumbe’s heroic antics to the tragedy that befalls young Thole Msibi, the drama does not let up.
