Necessary sin number 3: Profanity.
This book is making me think hard. Gotta love that.

“I will not be civil to anything or anyone that refuses to acknowledge the full humanity of women and girls. This is a battle. To that end, the shock and the offense profanity causes are necessary and important.”

Oops! Shopping for my husband‘s Christmas presents today in my favourite bookshop, I came across this. Could. Not. Resist 🙈🙊🙊.

Eltahawy was in Australia recently where she caused a “shit-storm” (is that an Australian expression?) on tv show, Q&A. It has lead to many a heated discussion between my husband & I.

I first heard about her on Litsy when this book came out a couple of months ago.

Now I‘m dropping everything to dive on in 👊🙌✊.

The Old Lie | Claire G. Coleman
post image
Pickpick

Coleman is ingenious. Spec fiction is not one of my favourite genres, but f^~! me, this was good.
Whilst it was fast-paced from the get-go I had to re-read the first third & write down the characters. It‘s not that there are a lot, but Coleman cleverly reveals limited info making them feel somewhat nebulous at first.
But PLEASE READ ON, because it will be worth it.
I cannot wait to see what this brilliant writer comes up with next. #ozfiction

Hooked_on_books I can‘t wait to get my hands on this! I‘m not sure when it comes out in the US. I thought Terra Nullius was genius—lulling you into thinking one thing then tearing back the curtain of what‘s really happening. Sounds like this one might do a similar thing. 1w
MrsMalaprop Oh my word yes @Hooked_on_books. So clever & you can‘t say much about it without spoiling it for those who haven‘t read it. Hope you can get your hands on it in the US soon. 1w

Read this in Bali, which was a rather contrasting setting! I‘ve seen the author here on Litsy and thought it was about time I read one of his books. I found this copy on my mum‘s shelves as we were clearing out her house recently.

Maybe the Horse Will Talk | Elliot Perlman
post image
Pickpick

Full disclosure: I‘m a serious Perlman fan. I‘ve read all his published fiction. This is his latest novel and I couldn‘t resist bumping it to the top of my gargantuan #tbr.

Contemporary, observant, funny and clever. It explores sexual misconduct in the workplace and the pressures of modern life, with a bit of love story thrown in for good measure.

Perlman is a great Australian novelist. #mustreadauthor
#ozfiction

CarolynM Great review. I started Seven Types of Ambiguity when it first came out but didn't make it very far. I didn't dislike it, but in the midst of young children my concentration wasn't up to it. I always intended to try again but I haven't yet. This one looks good. 3w

This was a fascinating & frightening #truecrime read written by the real estate agent currently selling my mum‘s home.

Thoroughly and painstaking researched, Juliet has put her heart into this, becoming good friends with the victim‘s daughter.

Another inquest into who killed Shirley Finn has just concluded here in Perth, Western Australia. The findings have not yet been released, but sadly I doubt there will be any clear answers. 🤞🤞🤞

On tv program Australian Story tonight is the story of Shirley Finn who was murdered in Perth, Western Australia in 1975.

My sister and I recently engaged Real Estate Agent Juliet Wills to sell our Mum‘s home upon her moving into aged care. When signing the contract to accept an offer on the sale last weekend, Juliet gave me this copy of her book, she said because she knew I was a book lover.

My mum, who now has dementia, was a huge fan of ⬇️

MrsMalaprop ⬆️ true crime and it‘s just so fitting that Juliet (who has been the most fabulous agent) is selling her beloved home. And it turns out Juliet literally lives around the corner from Mum‘s home. #serendipity (edited) 1mo
Freespirit Wow just watching the program now....such police corruption...it was rife in the 70's wasn't it! I admire the women who have pursued this for so long. 1mo

Relational psychotherapy 101. Nine chapters, each one a fictional amalgam of clients treated by the authors, with ‘tick-a-box‘ at the end of each chapter to help the reader reflect of whether the ‘issues‘ might apply to them.

Chapters 4 & 5 may or may not have aptly described particular family members, with whom I‘ve been struggling to relate 🤪😂😬. #justsayin‘. Of course, none of the chapters applied to me 🤣😇.

#oznonfiction #selfhelp

JennyM I‘ve just finished this and thought it was excellent. I saw myself or someone I knew in all the chapters 🤪 2mo
MrsMalaprop @JennyM Oh that‘s very cool. I heard about it on Radio National. It was an excellent, accessible way to learn about psychotherapy. I was conscious of how it is unfortunate that it‘s only really for those with means, as the authors comment on at the end. 2mo

Uncle Jack Charles is an absolute legend. Removed from his mother as a young baby and raised in an institution in Melbourne, the only Aboriginal child there.

Australia has so far to go in righting wrongs done to the first people of this land. Thank goodness we are hearing more and more of their stories.

Devastating, fascinating and life-affirming. 🖤💛❤️

All the love for this novel, and I can‘t wait to see her speak at the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival in October. 🙏💕😍
