Two more book launches to look forward to:

There will be a launch of two significant new South African novels – Pieter-Dirk Uys will launch his new novel Panorama, and Brent Meersman will launch Five Lives at Noon at three venues in KZN in October. Both writers will be in KZN to speak about their work. Both novels are published by newly-launched publishing house, Missing Ink.


Brent Meersman, Cape Town based theatre critic, restaurant reviewer and travel writer, has just released his third novel, Five Lives at Noonwhich follows a generation of young South Africans turning 30 during the turbulent years from the release of Nelson Mandela in 1990 to the day of the first democratic election in 1994. Their lives will be set on an inevitable, but unexpected, collision course.


Playwright, actor, satirist and author, Pieter-Dirk Uys will launch his new novel, Panorama which celebrates the people who, through their shared passion for a beloved country, managed to communicate and even laugh with each other in spite of fear, guilt and prejudice. This story about South Africa’s yesterday and today is inspired by Pieter-Dirk Uys’s internationally acclaimed play of the same name.
