A maverick first novel that should prove a winner with all except the humourless! With her first novel "E-mail from a Jewish Mother", Mona Berman takes her place alongside Leo Rosten, author of the classic "Joys of Yiddish". Her novel is a charming, humorous, highly perceptive account of a Jewish mother's relationship with her four daughters, consisting of a series of e-mail messages written by the mother to her daughters over the course of a year. "My darling Sarah Well done! What a splendid decision to go to Perth for Gavriela's Batmitzvah! I am relieved that you were finally able to persuade Cedric, who is always so moralistic, to use the insurance money you got after those wily London burglars robbed you of your few possessions..." 'Love, Mom' (the only name the mother claims) is a would-be old-fashioned Jewish mother of four independent daughters. Her e-mail messages are full of wit and wisdom, much of it with a Jewish slant, and reveal the lessons she has learned during the rocky voyage of her life. Together the e-mails have a definite feminist slant, and by the end the mother's correspondence has yielded a unique, vigorous, life-affirming comic novel which is also a satiric overview of today's world. Full of what is commonly regarded as typically Jewish humour, the letters are also a vehicle for unveiling the mother's journey into self-discovery and personal growth.

Norme vir Afrikaans (nou reeds in 'n sesde uitgawe) het sedert 1989 bewys gelewer dat dit 'n besonder effektiewe bron is vir gebruik in taalkundeklaskamers van tersiere instellings en selfs in skole. Die boek is aan die een kant 'n praktiese naslaanbron wat as basis vir eie taalontwikkeling kan dien. Aan ander kant word in die aanpak probeer om taalteorie en taalpraktyk te versoen. Dat die outeur hierin geslaag het, is bewys deur die gereelde bywerk van die boek en die wye gebruik daarvan. In die besonder fokus die boek op die verskeidenheid "norme" wat 'n mens in gedagte moet hou by die praktiese gebruik van Afrikaans, onder meer die beginsels onderliggend aan hierdie norme, en dan ook die identifisering van belangrike en nuttige bronne van taaladvies oor problematiese taalsake. Die doel van die boek is nie om streng "normatief" te probeer voorskryf nie, maar eerder om leiding te gee in die hantering van praktiese taalkwessies met as vertrekpunt gefundeerde taalteoretiese kennis oor die Afrikaanse taalkunde. Die boek is nou al deeglik gevestig as 'n omvattende en uiters bruikbare hulpmiddel vir sowel student as dosent en is die vrug van die outeur se jarelange ondervinding as taaldosent en navorser. Daar word ook rekening gehou met die geleidelike herstandaardisering van Afrikaans, vandaar die nuwe subtitel "Moderne Standaardafrikaans", wat 'n aanduiding is dat Afrikaans in die proses is om te moderniseer vir 'n nuwe geslag gebruikers. Die riglyne van die elfde uitgawe van die Afrikaanse Woordelys en Spelreels (AWS) (2017) is volledig in hierdie uitgawe verreken.
