Michael Robotham is back with another spellbinding thriller – “Bleed for Me”

Posted on 30 June 2010 by Phillipa Mitchell

When Sienna Hegarty turns up at his family home one night, covered in blood and frozen in shock, psychologist Joe O’Loughlin finds himself drawn deep into her world, trying to unearth the dark secrets her mind has buried. The police find a major piece of the puzzle at Sienna’s house: her father, a retired cop, is face-down in a pool of his own blood, his throat slashed and his skull caved in. The blood covering Sienna was his. The 14-year-old can’t remember what happened that night but, at the same time, Sienna doesn’t mourn her father’s death. What was going on behind closed doors in the Hegarty household? Is Sienna guilty of brutal murder? And what part has her charismatic teacher Gordon Ellis played in this blood-soaked event?

Introducing Evita’s Kossie Sikelela

Posted on 29 June 2010 by Phillipa Mitchell

This week we’re highlighting the irreverant Pieter-Dirk Uys‘ latest book, Evita’s Kossie Sikelela!

If the road to reconciliation runs through a country’s belly, Evita’s cookbook provides its recipe for peace.

Evita invites the whole country, the whole world to her table where everybody can feast on dishes like green bean bredie and cumin chicken with sweet potatoes. Who’ll be able to moan and groan between mouthfuls of walnut balls and pampoenkoekies, or baked apple clowns?

Truly, there’s nothing like a generous helping of rabbit in red wine or guinea fowl with sultanas & hanepoot to bring forth brotherly love. And liewe aarde, you will definitely want to be best friends with the orange trifle and Tannie’s melktert. Evita is always well prepared and includes recipes for diabetics and vegetarians, Halaal and Kosher dishes, and even recipes to keep as fit as she does.

 Whether she entertains her grandchildren, caters for a picnic or plans a Christmas menu, Evita cooks up a storm.

Available in English and Afrikaans! Click here to order now from Red Pepper Books for only R135!

About the author:

Pieter-Dirk Uys is a South African satirist, active as a performer, author, and social activist. He is the son of a Calvinist Afrikaner father and Berlin-born Jewish mother and had an NG Kerk upbringing. Uys is particularly well known for his character Evita Bezuidenhout (also known as Tannie Evita), a white Afrikaner socialite and self-proclaimed political activist.

Uys says, “Humour goes a long way to make a serious point. There is no need to be hysterical or sensationalist.”
