Man of the Year: A Memoir

Lou Cove

Man of the Year: A Memoir by Lou Cove

For one 1970's family, the center may not hold, but it certainly does fold.

In 1978 Jimmy Carter mediates the Camp David Accords, Fleetwood Mac tops charts with Rumours, Starsky fights crime with Hutch, and twelve-year-old Lou Cove is uprooted from the Upper West Side of Manhattan to Salem, Massachusetts- a backwater town of witches, Puritans, and sea-captain wannabes. After his eighth move in a dozen years, Lou figures he should just resign himself to a teenage purgatory of tedious paper routes, school bullies, and unrequited lust for every girl he likes.

Then one October morning an old friend...

The Good Girl Stripped Bare

Tracey Spicer

The Good Girl Stripped Bare by Tracey SpicerFrom bogan to boned and beyond - a full-frontal 'femoir' by one of Australia's best-loved journalists 'Will you ever work in television again?' the journalist asks, thrusting a microphone towards me. 'I hope so,' I say before scuttling into a cafe. It's feeding time and I need to express. But questions niggle, like chafed nipples. Can women stand up for their rights without retribution? Should you cry over spilled milk? And what happens when a good girl goes bad? Tracey Spicer was always the good girl. Inspired by Jana Wendt, this bogan from the Brisbane backwaters waded through the 'cruel and...
