There she encounters into one with a universal the full spectrum of mid-life manhood, from the perilous to the pathetic to application.’ the promising. The challenges of finding a belated soulmate among the men of the apartheid generation pose not a few conundrums for Kate – chief among them, the realisation of how impassable are the gulfs in outlook between the men who cross her inbox and her own personal non-negotiables. She goes on some dates, accumulates some bruises, and has her eyes opened to a few things about herself along the way. But it is the collision with her own baggage that proves to be the most daunting encounter of all. The coming into her life of a young African dog is the catalyst that forces her to some painful realisations: in order to find the intimacy she longs for, she first has to deal with her own destructive patterns. She loses her heart, finds her mojo and, as in all good quest journeys, discovers that the map is not the territory. Part wry romance, part social commentary, Survival Training for Lonely Hearts tracks the complexities of modern living in South Africa, caught between the collateral damage of the old and the emerging configurations of the new, across divides both personal and political. Through the experiences of Kate, the online dating milieu and kaleidoscopic interchanges of the book publishing world become an exploration of the broader issues we all face. For the past eight years Elana Bregin has worked as a full-time editor for publishers. Prior to that she was a freelance editor, copywriter, dancer, dance teacher and ‘general factotum’.

  • 9. PAN MACMILLAN The Agony Chef Recipes and Advice for Life’s Pickles and Predicaments Kate Sidley It has tried-and-tested recipes in it, but it isn’t a cookbook. It’s made up, but it isn’t a novel. Agony Chef, the mysterious Delilah, is a witty advice-giver, food-lover and a bit of a know-it-all who seems rather like the alter ego of author Kate Sidley, but isn’t her, actually. There’s no problem, big or small, that sardonic advice, a good pun and a well-chosen recipe won’t solve. Whether you’ve run over the neighbour’s cat or want to feel like Mother of the Year, whether your son’s exited the closet or you’ve just smoked your last cigarette, Agony Chef Delilah is the go-to girl for the vexing situations of modern life. Part-agony aunt, part-foodie, Delilah has been there, cooked that. Neither psychologist nor chef, she’s lived an eventful life on a few continents, making and fixing mistakes both in the kitchen and in everyday life. Join Delilah as she shares her wit and wisdom, her opinions and recipes and her touching belief that food and good humour can mend fences and hearts in The Agony Chef, a unique concept in cookery books that puts hilarious, fictitious agony aunt columns alongside delicious, real recipes. • Learn how to control an errant husband with passive-aggressive cooking • Discover the mysterious etiquette that applies to the newly facelifted • Indulge in the marvellous magic of make-up ceps • Make a pasta dish so delicious that your guests weep and beg for your hand in marriage • Find answers to the trickiest modern day questions: What should I cook for my obese aunt? How do I welcome my fiancé’s gorgeous ex? When did a food aversion become an acceptable replacement for a personality? And many more … Kate Sidley writes a weekly column on books for Sunday Times and a monthly humour column for Shape magazine. Previously a magazine editor, she now writes features and columns for many magazines and newspapers. The Agony Chef is her first book. Kate loves to cook, but lays no claim to ‘chefiness’.
