More than just a story about the personal journey of one of South Africa's most beloved music icons, this extraordinary memoir of PJ Powers - or Thandeka, as she was affectionately renamed by Soweto crowds - is set against the turbulent backdrop of South Africa's recent political history. It features a gallery of political leaders and international celebrities, including the likes of Nelson Mandela, Graça Machel, Chris Hani, Joaquim Chissano, Queen Elizabeth II, Brenda Fassie, Sharon Stone and Robert De Niro. On Republic Day 1982, a white rock and roll band called Hotline, wearing stonewashed jeans and sporting big hair, took an accidental sho't left into Soweto - a detour that forever changed the life of their lead singer, PJ Powers. Hotline was the first all-white rock and roll band to "cross over" into highly segregated apartheid South Africa, making international headlines in the process. The prolific Powers went on to accomplish extraordinary heights as a solo artist with countless gold and platinum discs. Here I Am, written with Marianne Thamm, is an intimate and hilarious account of the life and times of one of this country's most recognisable and enduring performers. From the dizzying heights of international stardom to the dark depths of her struggle with alcohol, this is a must-read to explore the heady mix of politics and music of the time.

Musical theatre is an international form, not just an American one. It can take root anywhere. Few people would realise that such hit standards as "The Glow Worm", "Brazil", "Mack the Knife", "I Will Wait for You" and "El Condor Pasa" came from foreign language musicals. ""His research is monumental... This is an important book on a previously undocumented area of musical theatre."" -- Peter Pinne, Stage Whispers ""There's never been a better book for the armchair-traveler-theatergoer."" -- Peter Filichia

Gathered together for the first time, a selection from the columns and occasional writings of Darrel Bristow-Bovey. For the better part of this century and the worst part of the last, Darrel Bristow-Bovey has been making enemies, allies and occasional friends with his newspaper and magazine columns. In that time he has received two death threats, five offers to sue, four national awards and a marriage proposal. Over a range of subjects, from television to sport to the difficulty of finding love in the modern world, never saying less than he thinks, never more than he feels, Darrel’s is an unmistakable and indispensable voice in the South African media. All the old favourites are in these pages: Jamie Oliver, Felicia, Wayne Ferreira, the lost art of conversation, Simunye presenters, Christmas stories, lesbians, and the infamous “The Day I Bought My Fridge”. Plus, as a special bonus, for the first time: The origin of Porky Withers and the true location of the Chalk ‘n Cue.
