Based on South Africa’s beloved comic strip, this special volume features Madam & Eve's favorite grandmother, Mother Anderson, as she shares her thoughts on surviving life’s twists and turns with a little help from her old friend, gin and tonic. Cantankerous yet warm and witty, Mother Anderson is depicted watching television and fighting with both Eve, her daughter’s maid, and the mielie lady—who frequently wakes the combative granny from her naps while selling ears of corn on the street. Entertaining and politically aware, this book provides a cynical and lighthearted perspective on life in South Africa.

Highlighting classic cartoons from the past 20 years, this annual collection is the ultimate collector's item.

Despite Georges Bataille’s acknowledged influence on major poststructuralist thinkers—including Foucault, Derrida, Kristeva, Lacan, Baudrillard, and Barthes—and his prominence in literary, cultural, and social theory, rarely has he been taken up by scholars of religion, even as issues of the sacred were central to his thinking. Bringing together established scholars and emerging voices, Negative Ecstasies engages Bataille from the perspective of religious studies and theology, forging links with feminist and queer theory, economics, secularism, psychoanalysis, fat studies, and ethics. As these essays demonstrate, Bataille’s work bears significance to contemporary questions in the academy and vital issues in the world. We continue to ignore him at our peril.

In this intriguing travel narrative, author Bruce Gall takes the reader on a 26,000-kilometre (16,000-mile) bus and train trip around Australia, exploring the nature of the country, its fascinating wildlife and stunning landscapes. We climb fire-spotting trees, look for rare animals, scale mountains, go bushwalking (hiking), explore national parks, brave wild weather and meet a host of interesting backpackers – and many local characters as well! We read Aboriginal legends, discover Australia’s early Dutch, French and British connections, discuss climate change, and much more. The author travels like Paul Theroux, with Bill Bryson’s sense of humour, but tells his own story, crafting meticulous word pictures, delightful dialogue and humorous anecdotes that will entertain to the very last page – vicarious travelling at its best.
