WANTED Rolls Out SIX Pages of Books in December 2012 Issue

Alexander Matthews, editor-at-large of Business Day’s award-winning magazine supplement, WANTED, has compiled what can only be described as a books guide par excellence.

Released earlier this month, WANTED’s December 2012 issue has no less than SIX pages dedicated to helping you choose some summer reads. Within these pages, reviewers from Finuala Dowling to Tony Leon take a look at a range of local and international titles, including those by Books LIVE members Rustum Kozain, Diane Awerbuck and Paul Holden:

African VioletLooking for TranswonderlandJM CoetzeeFrom Aardvark to ZumaThere Was A CountrySearching African SkiesThe Last Afrikaner Leaders

All of the titles listed, as well as other knickknacks from the issue, are available at WANTED‘s pop-up store, edit[ed], which is open at the Taj Hotel Cape Town until the end of January 2013.

Home RemediesFICTION Home Remedies
By Diane Awerbuck

With Home Remedies, Awerbuck returns to some of the institutions she explores in her earlier fiction; the short story collection, Cabin Fever, and her debut novel, Gardening at Night. She uses the larger-than-life figure of Saartjie Baartman to consider how much more there is at work beneath the structures we consider permanent and how easily the walls come down around us. The novel is accomplished for its essential rendition of a kind of ordinary madness that permeates every society and every home and for Awerbuck’s intelligent and often witty use of language. SK
