DEVI RAJAB BOOK LAUNCH (article first published : 1999-12-14)

Adams Campus Bookshop in association with Ravan Press this evening launched Devi`s Diary by Dr. Devi Rajab, well known for her weekly columns of the same name in The Mercury.

Her early columns in late 1996 focused on the Indian community but soon expanded to whatever took her fancy and very often included topical news of the previous week. Drawing on her extensive background as a counselling psychologist particularly in the areas of prejudice and inter-group relations, she highlights issues as well as perceptions of issues. These range from feminism to politics, culture to philosophy and education to patriotism. Written with compassion, sharp perception and a good dose of wry humour, her often-provocative articles have drawn responses of commendation as well as condemnation from readers.

In Deviís Diary, Ravan Press has published 38 of the close-on 100 articles she has written over the last three years. The book is available at Adams Campus Bookshop at the University of Natal, Durban. Write to PO Box 17221, Congella, 4013 or phone (031) 261-2320 or fax (031) 261-6053.
