The Function of Apartheid: The Tale of the Equation
South African born author Kesh Sukhu, debuts his first full-length novel to help both victims and perpetrators of discrimination find some semblance and understanding of what truly divides mankind.
The Function of Apartheid: The Tale of the Equation is a truly interesting book that brings something unique to the table in a genre that has seen many tales from the Apartheid era. The narrative is conveyed with passion and heart, providing a biographical/fictional account of life lived through and after apartheid from the perspective of a young black man who must face the demons of his own background and traumatic life experiences, strongly contrasted against a repugnantly wealthy white reality in which he finds himself living.
In this book, two contrasting worlds are portrayed by one character who must straddle them in an attempt to secure not only his own identity, but his view of the world and the way that he finds himself operating within it. The vehicle of statistical formulas is a clever device that provides logic to an illogical, evil operating system that has poisoned the minds of South Africans for many, many decades.
This book is uniquely South African in its context, and explores themes of guilt, separateness, happiness, contentment and unity within an overarching narrative that inevitably exposes the motivations of the characters in an unflinching look at some of the realities of apartheid.

Running Alone: The autobiography of long-distance runner Jackie Mekler
Running Alone is the life story of legendary South African long-distance runner Jackie Mekler. Heart-wrenching in parts, Jackie’s story unfolds to reveal a man imbibed with a fiercely competitive spirit that carried him through the often harsh experiences in an era when the first glimmerings of medical and scientific advances in the sport were emerging. That indomitable spirit coupled with his passion for running saw Jackie win five of the eleven 90km Comrades Marathons in which he competed. His self-taught ability to focus his mind on the end result was a discipline that today is recognised as visualisation, a powerful tool used by leading coaches and sportsmen and women internationally. A man who loves his privacy, he nevertheless has the ability to share a host of amusing anecdotes covering his early life, his experiences in the print industry that ended in heartbreak, and his escape to the country where he and his family enjoyed a bucolic lifestyle on his farm aptly named Camperdown.
