Maid in SA

Maid in SA: 30 Ways to Leave your Madam is a laugh-out-loud take on a woman’s home, but is as serious as the security guards in gated communities.

It is a quirky, lighter look at one of South Africa’s most important, yet most overlooked, relationships: that between a domestic worker and her madam. In this book you’ll find the women in your life – your mothers, your sisters, your cousins, your friends and yourself.

To get you started:
• There are two types of white madams, the poor-white madam and the liberal middle-class madam.
• There are no poor African madams.
• If your helper has a colourful name, she must be a Zimbabwean.
• Having a Malawian helper is never about the Malawian helper, darling.
