R295.00

For desire to exist and possibly flourish, for erotic lives to be cultivated, men must first be born and the dying ones replaced – something entirely unworkable without the power of femininity, of womanhood.”

SKU: breasts-etc
Category:
A universe minus women can only mean extinctions of varying and catastrophic degrees. Erotic, perceptive and transcendental; Breasts, etc. is a novel of double consciousness. Portrait photographer and narrator, James Baldwin, oscillates between present day South Africa and the Frontier — an existential dystopia if and when women are inexplicably completely and permanently wiped from the world.
It is an exploration of, and meditation on the existential strife and tragic comedy at the Frontier, a post-apocalyptic and desolate landscape that forms the backdrop to an examination of masculine vulnerabilities and wickedness in a world stripped of feminine presence and wisdom.

AWAKENED… to my true self

R329.00
Nonkululeko Gobodo made her mark in business as the first black female Chartered Accountant in South Africa, a great and a rare feat for a black woman growing up in apartheid South Africa. If she was told at 17 years old, while pregnant, that she would be a valiant voice of her generation, she would have laughed it off in disbelief. Nonkululeko’s career has always been about embodying black excellence, and in this book, she bares her own perspective on deep-seated issues of racism, prejudice against women, discrimination, and mental brokenness; themes that continue to taunt our minds today. The book is a culmination of her passion to see black people and women awakened to their true selves. It is a reflective celebration of self, courage and the remarkable spirit of resilience that lies within us all. The clarity in her voice comes through so well that it feels like she’s in the room with you, narrating her life story in an unhurried conversation. Her discerning view on the ego and one’s ability to be both wise and foolish, strong and weak, is meditative and inspiring. True to the book’s title, she comes into her own through her unordinary journey of trauma, healing and self-love that has awakened her to her true purpose

The Parchments of Mpemba Kasi

R275.00
It is 1207 AD, the year that Dini, the adopted son of Mutsindo, the zivi of Mpemba Kasi, turns 12. There is joy and jubilation as Mutsindo’s first wife falls pregnant, but the joy is short-lived when she gives birth to a baby girl with the same skin tone as Dini – a skin tone most abhorred in Mpemba Kasi. Mutsindo, the zivi of the Kingdom of Mpemba Kasi, is left with no choice but to banish Dini from the kingdom, to never return. Further South-East, in the Kingdom of Mapungubwe, the Lemba lived harmoniously with the Vhangona as one. The Lemba’s sacred drum, in the custody of their high priest, has been exploited by the king of the Vhangona to conquer other kingdoms. Discovering the secret to Vhangona’s power, the King of Mpemba Kasi intercepts the scared drum. The sons of the high priest, Hadzhi and Mukoma, are determined to find their sacred drum and will not rest until it is returned home. The journey is unkind, and as Hadzhi, with the same skin tone as Dini, finds himself alone in the journey, he is determined to enter the Kingdom of Mpemba Kasi to retrieve the drum. But the kingdom has not forgotten about the boy whose skin tone continues to scorn the kingdom’s zivi through a girl he left behind. As soon as Hadzhi enters the kingdom, a muddle of cheers and cries can be heard – jubilant cheers from the villagers as their whips pierce through the body tied to a pole, and a cry for help from a boy dying for the sins of the other who resembles his skin tone.
