BRINK AND JONKER PEN LOVE LETTERS Two of South Africa’s most famous authors, André Brink and Ingrid Jonker, had a tumultuous affair in the early 1960s, and the letters Brink and Jonker wrote to one another during their relationship will be published by Umuzi in November.
Brink met Jonker in 1963 while he was married to his first wife – the first of five – Estelle.
A limited and numbered edition of their letters, in English and in Afrikaans, will also be published. PUMLA DINEO GQOLA GIVES US MORE Pumla Dineo Gqola – feminist, activist and literature professor at Wits University – is working on a new book about rape.
The description states: “While volumes exist on rape in South Africa, much of this writing exists either in academic journals, activist publications or analysis pages of select print media. This is a conclusive book on rape in South Africa, illuminating aspects of our rape problem and contributing to shifting the conversation forward.”
Gqola is the author of What is Slavery to Me? and A Renegade Called Simphiwe. EROTIC NIGERIAN CHURCH STORIES RELEASED Nigerian novelist Obinna Udenwe is capitalising on the idea that sex sells – and in Nigeria, religion sells nearly as much. His new story series, Holy Sex, is trashy pulp fiction that unites church and the erotic (it’s “church lit” so to speak).
Brittlepaper.com says: “We invite you to come along as we explore the sexual exploits of the miracleworking Pastor Samuel.”
The story will be free to read every week at brittlepaper.com.
