Book launch

South African-born author Joanne Fedler, 54, right, who is the daughter of cartoonist Dov Fedler and now lives in Australia, was in Claremont on Thursday October 21 to launch her latest novel, Unbecoming, at Exclusive Books Cavendish Square. She was in discussion with Karen Schimke of Vredehoek, author of The Karen Book of Rules. Unbecoming is described as “a funny, heartbreaking and provocative homage to the midlife unravelling as women on the brink of elderhood speak honestly about their lives and wonder what the hell to do with vaginas that are not ready to be put out to pasture just yet”.
