This book is a compilation of papers that I have presented at different seminars. I decided to put them together in order to contribute to the ongoing discussion surrounding the issues of Blackness and Whiteness in South Africa and across the world. It is no secret that issues of race render others uncomfortable, making them exit the discussions or discuss them apologetically for fear of judgment of their views , however, it is vital to create a conducive environment in which these issues can be discussed more broadly, robustly, and without fear. These conversations need to be facilitated so that the unavoidable nervousness and quarrels that usually occur do not damage the gist of the deliberations, but that they can instead be used as scholarship openings, hence the book is titled Frank Talk.

I'll be on your patio at four o'clock. If you aren't there, I'll understand.... This is the gist of the mysterious plea for help that Conan Flagg finds lying on the counter of his Holliday Beach Book Shop. The writer is beautiful Isadora Canfield, a concert pianist and daughter of the late Oregon Senator John Canfield, in whose will she would become a millionairess. Isadora wants Conan to find out who is keeping her under 24-hour surveillance, but she becomes strangely quiet when asked for details of her father's death and of how she had spent the weeks following. In fact she is disinclined to talk about the family at all - not her blind stepmother or her irrepressible stepbrother or her sadly altered stepsister, Jenny, who had once been a promising artist. Conan soon realizes that he and his gifted client are sitting on dynamite. He thinks he knows who has the matches, but he can't be sure. And proving it, is dangerous work, even for a pro like Flagg. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Marshall. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/018326/bk_adbl_018326_sample.mp3.
