The Cape Town Book Fair has returned to the Mother City, this time as the South African Book Fair. Bummer that not one but two of the guest speakers I badly wanted to see didn’t pitch (shame on you both!), but there was a lot to see, loads of books on sale and I was particularly taken by this attractive display of Iconic South African writers by the Department of Arts and Culture. Plus it’s also a small comfort to see that not all my income tax money went to upgrading Nkandla, president Zuma’s controversial luxury residence !!
