              'I marked the day in my adolescent diary with a single blank page.' 'The mantle of queer migrant compelled me to keep going - to go further.' 'I never came out to my parents. I felt I owed them no explanation.' 'All I heard from the pulpit were grim hints.' 'I became acutely awar...e of the parts of myself that were unpalatable to queers who grew up in the city.' 'I was thirty-eight and figured it was time to come out to her.' 'That's when I know it's not going anywhere - the gay.' 'I felt like I had been dunked into an episode of The L Word and I wasn't given the script.' 'No amount of YouTube videos and queer think pieces prepared me for this moment.' 'My queerness was born in a hot dry land that was never ceded.' 'I finally admitted what my feelings for Dirty Dancing-era Patrick Swayze had clearly been indicating for some time.' 'Even now, I sometimes think that I don't know my own desire.' Compiled by celebrated author and journalist Benjamin Law, Growing Up Queer in Australia assembles voices from across the spectrum of LGBTQIA+ identity. Spanning diverse places, eras, genders, ethnicities and experiences, these are the stories of growing up queer in Australia. 'For better or worse, sooner or later, life conspires to reveal you to yourself, and this is growing up.' With contributions from David Marr, Fiona Wright, Nayuka Gorrie, Steve Dow, Holly Throsby, Sally Rugg, Tony Ayres, Nic Holas, Rebecca Shaw, Giselle Au Nguyen and many more.

              David Marr's explosive bestseller, now expanded and fully updated. In March this year, the nation's most powerful Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, was jailed for child sexual assault. In The Prince, David Marr investigates the man, his career and his ultimate fall. Marr reveals a ...cleric at ease with power and aggressive in asserting the prerogatives of the Vatican. He charts Pell's response - as a man, a priest, an archbishop and a prince of the church - to the scandal that has engulfed the Catholic world- the sexual abuse of children. This is the story of a cleric torn by the contest between his church and its victims, and slow to realise that the Catholic Church cannot, in the end, escape secular scrutiny. Behind it all was Pell's own terrible secret, which was uncovered and judged in a trial that convulsed the nation. The Prince is a portrait of hypocrisy and ambition, set against a backdrop of terrible suffering and an ancient institution in turmoil.

              How To Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy

              A galvanising critique of the forces vying for our attention - and our personal information - that redefines what we think of as productivity and reveals what we've been too distracted to see about ourselves and our world. Nothing is harder to do these days than nothing. But in a... world where our value is determined by our data productivity, doing nothing may be our most important form of resistance. So argues artist and critic Jenny Odell in this field guide to slowing down. Odell sees our attention as the most precious - and overdrawn - resource we have. Once we can start paying a new kind of attention, we can undertake bolder forms of political action, reimagine humanity's role in the environment, and arrive at a more meaningful understanding of happiness and fulfilment. Far from a simple anti-technology screed, or a pointless back-to-nature meditation, How to Do Nothing is an action plan for thinking beyond capitalist narratives of efficiency and value. Provocative, timely and utterly persuasive, it shows us how to preserve our inner lives and bring about change in a world that needs this more than ever. 'A manifesto for the internet age.'-The A.V. Club 'An invigorating meditation on ways of seeing and being more present ... It's a book that could change you for the better.'-LitHub

              This brilliant collection mixes the storytelling originality of George Saunders and Lydia Davis with a sensibility all its own, taking the reader on an extraordinary tour of old and new Australia - and into a very frightening future. A woman on a passenger ship in 1958 gets invol...ved with a young, wild Barry Humphries. A man looks back to the 1970s, and his time as a member of Australia's least competent scout troop. In 1988, a teenage boy recalls his sexual initiation, out on the tanbark. In 2015, two sisters text in Kmart about how to manage their irascible, isolated mum. Then, in the near future, a racist demagogue - a kind of Australian Trump - talks to the press the day after his electoral triumph. And as the cities heat up and lose their water, a lady from one of the 'better suburbs' makes every effort to get her family into a gated community. This is Australia, in all its glories and its foibles - and its insularity and fear. These stories are a reflection of where we are now, and where we may be headed. Bitingly satirical, outstandingly original and written in a remarkable range of voices, A Couple of Things Before the End is a stand-out fiction debut of 2020.

              What happens when a doctor kills a patient? Are GPs overprescribing antidepressants? Does 'female Viagra' work? What role can psychedelics and cannabis play in treating pain? What is sickness, and how much of it is in our heads? In The Medicine, Dr Karen Hitchcock takes us to the... frontlines of everyday treatment, turning her acute gaze to everything from the flu season to dementia, plastic surgery to the humble sick day. In an overcrowded, underfunded medical system, she explores how more of us can be healthier, and how listening carefully to a patient's experience can be as important as prescribing a pill. These dazzling essays show Hitchcock to be one of the most fearless and illuminating medical thinkers of our time - reasonable, insightful and deeply humane.
