What would life be like without our Daily Maverick dose of Zapiro? Where would we be without the illumination, the spicy crispy wit, the cutting, the clever, the way of showing us our politicians and life in South Africa with a dose of humour and more than a dash of satire?
Zapiro's annual offering is our duplicity warning, our canary in the coalmine, our national conscience. Exposing and revealing, brilliantly appealing, Zapiro does it again!

“Sometime in November 2007 while working as an entertainment and lifestyle journalist, a job that had seen me party and hang out with local and international stars, including John Legend, I realised that I was over my life in South Africa. My job was fab and my life should have been great but it wasn't because who cares if you get to pose with Beyoncé? I had had enough of writing about people living their wildest dreams. It was time to see what the story of my life would be. I had always had wanderlust, especially for Africa. And so I made the decision to leave South Africa, an urgent need that consumed me and almost drove me to a point of insanity. I planned to spend three months in Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Togo and Benin.”
When Lerato Mogoathle left South Africa for a planned three-month break to West Africa little did she know that those three months would turn into five years.

Vagabond is her hilarious and honest account of her five years of living as a drifter in Africa. In between the borders, foreign architecture and interesting new ways of life, Mogoatlhe found passion, love, laughter and heartbreak. On these pages you will find capsules of time spent in 21 countries in five regions of Africa. You will be regaled by the tales of how she tries to worm herself into hotels when she has no money because of unpaid invoices back home. You will be mortified and proud of how she navigates herself out of difficult situations like being misread by a man who tries to force himself on her.

Mogoatlhe's book is a travel memoir driven by the belief that whatever else Africa is, it is first and foremost a home. It is punctuated with a deep urge to know the continent differently.

Met sy fyn oog sien Fred Mouton álles raak. Sy vlymskerp spotprente lewer raakvat sosiale kommentaar en is al vir 50 jaar stapelvoedsel vir duisende Afrikaanse koerantlesers. 50 Jaar met Fred bevat meer as 400 van sy beste sketse en etse.
Die boek is as't ware 'n aaneenlopende strokiesprent van Suid- Afrika se wel en wee oor die afgelope vyf dekades - dit dek alles van groot politieke storms en sportdramas tot omstrede figure en huismoles.

In sy sketse wys Fred ook die alledaagse dinge wat mense raak. Die droogtes en die landreën, inflasie wat elke keer net-net voor die verbruiker by die petrolpomp opdaag, die Springbokke wat verloor en dan weer wen. Fred het tussendeur ook vir Landbouweekblad, Huisgenoot, Weg! en dosyne ander publikasies geteken. Sy humor is kurkdroog, sy sketse komies - en soms ontstellend, maar altyd só bekend.

Until ten years ago, geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date. Then he developed The Wife Project and met Rosie, 'the world's most incompatible woman'. Now, having survived 3,653 days of marriage, Don's life-contentment graph, recently at its highest point, is curving downwards.

Don and Rosie's ten-year-old son, Hudson, is having trouble at school: his teachers say he isn't fitting in with the other kids. Rosie is battling Judas at work, and Don is in hot water after the Genetics Lecture Outrage.

For Don, learning to be a good parent as well as a good partner will require the help of friends old and new. It will mean letting Hudson make his way in the world, and grappling with difficult truths about his own identity.

It will also mean opening a cocktail bar.

It's been one helluva year - again. We've seen Zuma resign as president, the DA go after its own people, Trump exercise his megalomania, the rise of racial tensions (as well as the petrol price) and tempers being flared. All while the Guptas fled the Saxonwold Shebeen.
Who better to make sense of this than Zapiro, political analyst, cartoonist and agent provocateur. He has the ability to knock the air out of us, to rock us back in our seats, to force us bolt upright with a 1000-watt jolt of electrifying shock. He makes us angry, he makes us laugh and he makes us think. He shines a light on the elephant in the room, presents the emperor in all his naked glory. Impossible to brush off, he is determined to provoke a response.

When all around is crumbling, when fake news and zipped lips conceal the truth, Zapiro comes to the rescue. With the dissecting eye of a surgeon, the rapier-like point of his pen exposes flimflam, and reveals with a single line what lies behind the action.

Add a twist of humour to South African nostalgia with Hagen Engler's latest offering. Black Twitter, Blitz And A Boerie As Long As Your Leg is a light-hearted, humorous read of multiple entries that can be dipped into at will. Optimistic, topical and definitely tongue-in-cheek, this book could easily be that last-minute gift that you pick up at the airport before you head back to the parental home for the holidays. Not too politically edgy - so as not to offend any sensitive elephants in the room - it draws on the great many things that South Africans do have in common, and that will give us all a moment to agree on something, for a change.
Black Twitter, Blitz And A Boerie As Long As Your Leg lists and celebrates the tiny, subtle aspects of South African life that we all experience but don't always notice. Engler looks at icons of our shared South Africanness but drills a little deeper to make them more specific, a bit more ridiculous, a bit funnier, and hopefully to induce an excited exclamation from the reader of, “Yoh! That's so true!” Even if the entry is ostensibly negative, Engler will find a poignant aspect of it that is lovable and help us laugh at ourselves.

Die geliefde dominee Barend Vos se sketse oor die lewe van 'n predikant en sy gesin in 'n plattelandse gemeente het tot op hede in vyf bundels verskyn. Dié sketse verskyn die afgelope tien jaar elke maand in die tydskrif LIG, met illustrasies deur Fred Mouton.

In Liefdegroete, Grootseun word 'n dertigtal van Vos se Grootseun-stukke wat die afgelope jare in Lig verskyn het, byeen gebring as keur van die meer as 100 wat sedert sy laaste versameling verskyn het. Elke rubriek word aangebied as 'n brief wat deur “Grootseun” geskryf word aan sy ouers. Die sketse het meestal 'n sterk humoristiese aanslag en gefokus op 'n plattelandse kerkgemeenskap waarvolgens “Grootseun” die Jongdominee van die gemeente is. Die ruimte is dus plattelands, kerklik en geskryf met 'n deernisvolle aanbod wat eie is aan Vos se skryfstyl.

The memoir of legendary cartoonist John Callahan, now a major motion picture directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, and Rooney Mara. Featuring more than 60 of Callahan's original cartoons In 1972, at the age of twenty-one, John Callahan was involved in a car crash that made him a quadriplegic. A heavy drinker since the age of twelve (alcohol had played a role in his crash), the accident could have been the beginning of a downward spiral. Instead, it sparked a personal transformation. By 1978, Callahan had sworn off drinking for good and began to draw cartoons. Over the next three decades, until his death in 2010, Callahan would become one of America's most beloved - and at times polarising - cartoonists. His work, which shows off a wacky and sometimes warped sense of humour, pokes fun at social conventions and pushes boundaries. One cartoon features Christ at the cross with a thought bubble reading 'T.G.I.F.' In another, three sheriffs on horseback approach an empty wheelchair in the desert. 'Don't worry,' one sheriff says to another, 'He won't get far on foot.' Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot recounts Callahan's life story, from the harrowing to the hilarious. Featuring more than sixty of Callahan's cartoons, it's a compelling look at art, addiction, disability and fame.

Met 'n Keur uit Genade! EdeLAGbare oortref Ian Wessels (samesteller en voorleser) en die RSG-luisteraars hulself met lekkerlag en lekkerluister hofhumor wat beslis in almal se smaak sal val. Regters, landdroste, staatsaanklaers, advokate, prokureurs, tolke, polisiemanne, spietkops, maatskaplike werkers, getuies en almal wat al paaie met die hof gekruis het, is gewillige 'slagoffers' van die skreeusnaakse bydraes.
Ian Wessels se doel was om 'n versamelde humoristiese werk met behulp van RSG- luisteraars se bydraes saam te stel. Sommige bydraes laat vergange tye van polisiepatrollies te perd of te fiets herleef, terwyl ander met deernis kyk na mense vir wie die reguit paadjie of 'de smalle weg' darem net te eentonig is.

Uittreksels
Maak dood daai ding!
'n Beskuldigde het moontlik die beskuldigdebank met 'n verhoog verwar. Toe sy saak geroep word, betree hy die hof met 'n kitaar oor die skouer en 'n brandende sigaret in sy mond.
'Maak dood daai ding!' sê die landdros, verwysende na die sigaret. Die beskuldigde reageer egter verontwaardig: 'Kry ek nie eens 'n last request nie?'
'n Eerlike antwoord
'n Man moet na sy skuldigbevinding aan dronkbestuur gevonnis word. Sy prokureur het gedink 'n verslag van 'n maatskaplike werker sou help. Dit het nie. Op die vraag watter alkohol hy meestal gebruik en in watter hoeveelhede, antwoord hy eerlik: 'Ek is mos nie vol fiemies nie. Ek drink maar wat daar is tot dit op is.'
Watse bakkie?
'n Boer se bakkie word gesteel, maar die prokureur karnuffel hom so onder kruisverhoor dat hy later vir sy vrou vertel: 'Gaats, Mammie, ek was later nie eers meer seker of ek ooit 'n bakkie gehad het nie!'
