Book Launch: Zuma’s Bastard

Brace yourself!

Two Dogs Publishers invite you to the launch of:

Zuma’s Bastard: Encounters with a desktop terrorist by Azad Essa

Date: Wednesday 27 October 2010

Time: 5.30pm

Venue: Lobby Books, 6 Spin Street, Cape Town

RSVP: Andreas Spath at or 021 467 7606

Satirical, informative, irreverent, Zuma’s Bastard looks race and religion in the eye, drags Julius Malema to a shrink, sheds new light on old stereotypes, scrapes the dirt off the facade of the Middle Eastern conflict, all the while warming you with hope for a better lived future.

A collection of writing inspired by Azad Essa’s award-winning Accidental Academic blog on Thought Leader, it is ultimately a mind map of a generation of South Africans who want, finally, to fight for their freedom.

“I’d be very surprised if the authorities allowed you to board a plane with this very dangerous book” – Dylan Muhlenberg (GQ Magazine)

“At once tjatjarag and lyrical, the digitally compressed and accelerated voice of a South Africa that no media tribunal could ever silence” – Nic Dawes (Mail & Guardian)
