Memoir

Fallen

A memoir about sex, religion and marrying too young

by Rochelle Siemienowicz

‘Call me Eve. Of course it’s not my real name. But it’s the name I call myself when I think back to that time when I was a young wife – so very young, so very hungry – and I picked the fruit and ate and drank until I was drunk with freedom and covered in juice and guilt.’

In this frank, compelling and beautifully written memoir, Rochelle Siemienowicz provides an intimate portrait of the last days of an open marriage.

Raised as devout Seventh-day Adventists, who believe that the end of the world is near and that premarital sex is a terrible sin, Eve and her husband marry young. Rebelling against their upbringing, and in an attempt to overcome problems in their relationship, they enter an agreement that has its own strict rules. But when Eve holidays alone in her hometown of Perth during a hot West Australian summer, she finds her body and heart floating free.

Fallen is a true tale of sex, love, religion and getting married too young – and about what it feels like when you can’t keep the promises you once sincerely made.

The Suppository of All Wisdom

By Andrew Thompson

Cartoons by Andrew Weldon

Inspired by Tony Abbott’s immortal verbal overreach, The Suppository of All Wisdom is a hilarious, fully illustrated guide to the words and expressions we most often mangle, muck up and just don’t quite understand.

You’ll be amazed at how many supposably well-educated speakers make mistakes – from schoolteachers, to newsreaders, to Rhodes Scholar prime ministers. Too often the misinformed flaunt the rules, and that’s a travesty. In one foul swoop, this book will make you sound smarter. It is the ultimate grammar guide, literally awesome, and begs the question: why not buy two?
