SA writing celebrated at Sunday Times Literary awards



Unlikely-secret-agent 

Two authors were honoured in both the fiction and non-fiction categories at the prestigious Sunday Times Literary awards, held in Johannesburg. As a proud supporter of South African literature, Leopard’s Leap is pleased that two publishers whose events and launches they regularly sponsor, namely Jacana and Kwêla, were responsible for publishing the winning books.

Former minister of Intelligence Ronnie Kasrils was honoured with the Alan Paton Award for his memoir The Unlikely Secret Agent (published by Jacana). The book is based on the life of his late wife, anti-apartheid activist Eleanor Kasrils.

The fiction prize was awarded to Kwazulu-Natal native Sifiso Mzobe for Young Blood (published by Kwêla). Set in Umlazi, Kwazulu-Natal, the novel centers around a youth caught up in the underworld of car theft and hijacking.

“I am sure it must have been an extremely challenging task for both judging panels to select a winner for each award,” says Tymon Smith, books editor of the Sunday Times. “To select two winners seem so unfair, as each writer has made an important contribution to the South African literary landscape.”

Leopard’s Leap is excited by the new South African voices and stories these publishers champion, and will continue to be a frequent sponsor and supporter of local literature.
