New book alert! Margie Orford’s compelling, intimate and profound memoir Love and Fury
 More about the book!

Love and Fury: A Memoir by bestselling crime writer Margie Orford is out now from Jonathan Ball Publishers.

‘Writing enabled me to escape my body, and to inhabit a cerebral, disembodied state where I could think and feel without being overwhelmed.’

Love and Fury traces a woman’s fierce love and righteous rage, unravelling entanglements that are at once tender and traumatic.

Renowned South African crime writer Margie Orford offers candid revelations, both political and personal, which have shaped her life and influenced her writing.

Surviving marriage, divorce, depression, personal loss and sexual assault, Orford recounts memories of what she has experienced as a woman, a wife, a mother – and particularly as a writer.

Love and Fury demonstrates the enduring, debilitating effects of hurt and harm, but at the same time it exemplifies the power of love, self-belief and self-reflection, ultimately offering a message of hope.

​This book is for every person who has experienced passion and wrath – and who looks beyond this to the light.
