Each winner receives R, A nation is like a large, extended family and our collective health is dependent on those among us who are the guardians of our precious moments. The Alan Paton shortlist is a collection of powerful moments recorded with rigour and beauty. Three of the writers delve into intensely personal spaces. These range from the horror of the apartheid prisons to a search for the meaning of the great spiritual warrior Mbuya Nehanda, that takes us into a Zimbabwe outsiders hardly know. Then there is a moving family portrait, strikingly universal in its approach that ends with the heart-rending realisation that what has been lost cannot be regained. All but one of the five books on the shortlist have been written by women, including an innovative journalistic analysis of the cash-in-transit heists, a crime epidemic.
