I had the pleasure of attending the launch of media doyenne Jane Raphaely’s autobiography, Unedited, last night. Turn the page of almost any women’s magazine in South Africa and you’ll see the Raphaely name proudly representing, with Jane taking the reigns as Chairwoman of Associated Magazines and Editor in Chief of O Magazine. Born in Birmingham, she moved to South Africa in the 1960’s and began working towards the position she holds today as the Queen of Publishing. Listening to Jane’s wise and humble words last night brought tears to my eyes and I can’t wait to cuddle up with Unedited this winter. With chapters like “Marry the Cowboy and Double Your Money, Honey” and “Demon Aunt“, it’s bound to be killer.
