Random House Struik (Pty) Ltd publishes a diverse range of books ranging from fiction through to cookbooks, gardening books, travel guides, nature and wildlife guides as well as biographies, local interest and business books.
Our local publishing, which promotes books written in both English and Afrikaans, is underpinned by Struik’s 48-year heritage publishing mainly non-fiction African titles under the Struik, Zebra Press and Oshun Books imprints. Random House SA’s local imprint Umuzi, established three years ago to mark the company’s 40th anniversary in South Africa, continues to publish new voices in both fiction and non-fiction.
Struik’s previous bestselling local titles include In Black and White: The Jake White Story by Jake White (Zebra Press) which sold over 200,000 copies in 2007. Umuzi’s bestselling title to date is Dark Continent my Black Arse by Sihle Khumalo, closely followed by Odyssey to Freedom by George Bizos and a number of titles by popular author Antjie Krog.
The Random House Group balances this local publishing strength through its many diverse and highly respected imprints, providing Random House Struik (Pty) Ltd with internationally acclaimed authors such as James Patterson, Ian McEwan, Philip Roth, Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Bill Bryson, Richard Branson, Andy McNab, Terry Pratchett, Lee Child, Jilly Cooper, Robert Harris, Dan Brown, Chris Ryan, Mark Haddon, Philip Pullman and Jacqueline Wilson. The Group is also the international publisher of lauded South African writers such as J M Coetzee and Andre Brink, as well as Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
