Honey beer and penguin eggs, pinball and stick-fighting, sacred dancing and shebeens, swimming at night and kissing in the forest . Over the years, South Africans have pursued pleasure in a wild variety of ways. Nice times! is a compendium of writing about local delights, by all kinds of writers, from every era of South African history. Here you will find innocent joys, wicked temptations, obscure enthusiasms – and a great deal of humour, fun and sensual relish.
