In her collection of humorous columns, award-winning writer Giselle Willcox offers readers a wonderful collation of three years of a celebrated back-page column with a South African favourite, Living and Loving.
Set against the backdrop of modern South African life, Giselle, with the sassy combination of wit and wisdom, faces motherhood one gosh-awful day at a time, touching on everything from nappies to no sleep, from parties to potty-training in a way that is both entertaining and endearing. three offers moms convincing consolation – that if they are in fact insane, they are not alone.
Giselle is right there with them.

world and parenthood. In bite-size pieces, her view of the world we share will lighten – and enlighten – your day. A must-read!” – Dr Graeme Codrington, business strategy consultant and author
