Jane Raphaely: Unedited (eBook)

In this frank and funny memoir, written for the thousands of women who have asked her to tell them ‘how she did it’, the doyenne of magazine publishing in South Africa tells a great deal more than the herstory of women’s magazines. JANE RAPHAELY unedited is impossible to put down, and should come with a warning. It is intended to change women’s lives for the better and, as Jane’s story proves, print is the most powerful weapon in the world, in the right hands, at the right time.

"From her tough but happy childhood in a small town near Manchester to the heights of South African magazine publishing, Jane Raphaely’s life story makes for intriguing and inspirational reading.

In her autobiography, JANE RAPHAELY unedited, Jane shares personal experiences – some of them triumphs, some of them traumas – that few of her closest confidantes were aware of. JANE RAPHAELY unedited is a touching, revealing portrait of a strong, talented, contradictory woman, whose courage and determination are exceeded only by her legendary kindness.

Jane Raphaely’s story is indeed stranger than fiction. Having lived through a war in England and grown up in a rough neighbourhood, with a demon aunt and a difficult father, Jane learnt how to ‘smile and wave’ – one of many survival tactics she passes on in this memoir. An outsider who was determined to get ‘in’, Jane Raphaely found fame and fortune in New York, turned down $24 000 to follow her heart to South Africa, and moved to Cape Town shortly before the Sharpeville massacre made thousands leave a country that had become a pariah. In this frank and funny memoir, written for the thousands of women who have asked her to tell them ‘how she did it’, the doyenne of magazine publishing tells a great deal more than the herstory of women’s magazines.

Review:

"In her eagerly-awaited biography, Jane Raphaely Unedited, the doyenne of magazine publishing in SA lifts the lid on life in the world of women's magazines. In this extract she discusses everything from the nutritional value of semen, to her brush with a man, dressed in grey, with a large gun - with a silencer." Independent on Saturday. "This pregnant "media nobody" became editor of Fair Lady" Cape Times. "Raphaely is a publishing icon in SA. She seized an opportunity when it was presented and ran with it. She says that fear of failure keeps too many women in their place, "but what I have learned is that failing to attempt something is far worse and more painful than failing in the attempt."
