Bizcommunity’s creative director Terry Levin said William’s response to her suggestion that the column be titled “Pulp Non-Fiction” was: “That’s amazing ‘Pulp Non-Fiction’. Why not?”.
The play on the cult movie title was inspired by the open secret that the up-to 10 books per week ordered by Williams, are the raw material for her rigorous intellectual scope, which provide a welcome antidote to a sea of softer (pulp) opinion pieces.
The column will be a short form round-up of the author’s social media posts, book recommendations and inspirations, published every Friday from the beginning of August 2020. We look forward to sharing the unique insights of one of South Africa’s most highly regarded business intellectuals, to coincide with Women’s Month, especially at a time when gender bias issues are so relevant in the public domain.
