Meticulous research, intellect and passion combine in this superbly designed biography of Emily Hobhouse, the human rights campaigner, pacifist and feminist who defied convention and saved thousands of lives. At the core of it all is a trunk of notebooks and letters the author discovered while doing research in Canada. What better inspiration than the woman Gandhi described as “spiritually uplifting”?
4 Lagoon Dr, Umhlanga Plaza; 031 561 1958
This small, laidback eatery is only a short walk from the Umhlanga lighthouse and includes an outdoor dining section plus live music. Tuck into classic dishes, like the O Diablo (calamari, chouriço and olives sautéed in a peri-peri sauce; R65) to start, and the paella (stir-fried rice with prawns, calamari, mussels, clams, chouriço and chicken strips; R135) for mains.

Tasca, meaning quaint bistro, perfectly describes this venue with its easy atmosphere, mosaic detailing, washedwood elements and terrific menu. We suggest starting with the Lulas (calamari tubes grilled in a lemon and garlic sauce; R59) and moving on to the Galinha E Camarão (half chicken and queen prawns grilled in a peri-peri sauce; R169).
