Comments Off on African books recommendation for August
Once again, our team has put together a few recommended reading books for the month of August. The following African books:
Happiness is a four letter word
if you haven’t watched the movie, stop right there because the book is way better than the flick. If you have already watched the movie then reconsider reading this marvelous story about 4 women (yes 4 not 3 like in the movie). The 4th character was scrapped out of the movie. Such a pity as her story brings a true reality of our lives as women in the book. Enjoy the full book as written by Cynthia Jele.
There is something strange & eerie about the story within this book. At first it looks and sounds normal but as you read on, you will find it intriguing and rather informative about the life of modern day sangomas (the calling) but there is more to this than meets the eye.
Dancing to the beat of the Drum
This is one autobiography you don’t want to miss reading. Not only do we know Pamela Nomvete from our TV screens but we also know how many roles she has played that are dramatic. This book is equally dramatic! Decide for yourself!
Manifesto for Social Change: How to save South Africa
Now that the local government elections have come and gone. This book will indulge your many questions about the state of affairs in South Africa and more importantly, how and what needs to be done to save us from the status quo.
The Thabo Mbeki I know
When we talk about the strength and character of a man. This is it! Even better when it’s told by other people than himself. A book we should all read.
