Because Nazila Fathi has been a journalist for the NY Times and also reported for Time and Agence France-Presse, her writing is factual, accurate and reliable. The Lonely War is her first-hand account of her life in Iran, her home and birth country until she was no longer safe. It…
When Latika Bourke was growing up she was fiercely Australian, so much so that if anyone dared ask her where she was from she was incensed, shrugging off their question and changing the subject.  It was not until the right catalyst was provided that she made a huge effort to…
Isaac Bacirongo is a man who can stand tall, even though he is short in stature, not for any other reason than he is a man from the Congo: a man who comes from a race of people who are hunter gatherers and have been since the late Stone Age;…
When four women of a similar age, similar souls and similar passions get together to cook, a wonderful bond is formed.  This bond is so strong, that over the four year period of the story, each woman has an opportunity to discuss and disclose aspects of her earlier life, never…

Ralf Featured

When Ralf became famous it was in his role as a Therapy Dog at The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. He had been doing his job, a job he loved, with the children who were sick or dying, bringing them unconditional love and comfort in often their darkest of hours.…
Cancer is a word that instils fear in most of us. Many of us have had firsthand experiences and there are many stories of people's personal journeys. This is a different story, because it is told by a vet who also happens to be a surgical oncologist. She has treated…
It is very rare a person can leave a legacy to the world that has impact, is influential and lasts long after they have gone. John Lennon was such a person: gifted and talented, not just as a member of the ‘60’s pop music phenomena, The Beatles, but also as…
It is always interesting to discover what forces and actions come together from childhood to develop a world class athlete. In Torah's case her childhood was ideal.

When life decides to dish it out, it’s not often fussy about the age. In Ian Simpson’s case he was three and a half years old and returning home from a day at the beach with his family. A fight in the backseat of the Holden with his two brothers…
Reading the pages of this remarkable memoir there is far more here than a journey from oppression to a new life; it is also a story of hope, of challenge, of life in times that were very uncertain and also a reflection on a society which has changed so very…
Rich in the telling is Sophia Loren’s biography, as she takes us on a journey through her life which is as fascinating and intriguing as the lady herself. Told with warmth and love, this is a surprisingly good biography, filled with interest and retaining the interest.
Boxing aficionados should thoroughly enjoy this book.  It seems that Matthew Bazell writes to expose greed and corruption in Sport.  His previous book looked at the high prices and spiralling payments for Football and Footballers.  His research is thorough and extensive and he has used direct sources when able.
