Unfortunately it's AUS + NZ only, but there is an eBook available and an audiobook on the way, if you're into either of those formats. Thanks again. :) (less)

I absolutely loved this book. Recently I had the opportunity to interview Rick Morton for an event, and to me, the voice that comes through in his writing is identical to how he then comes across and speaks. Authentic and genuine, humble, funny, and ...more

"I received an ARC of this book.
Wow! I have not read Museum of Modern Love but now I think I have no choice. Heather Rose is a superb wordsmith. I found whilst reading Bruny that time just melted away. She has beautiful descriptive language that help " Read more of this review »

Three Women by Lisa Taddeo
"What even is this book? Broadly, it follows the desires and sex lives of three women but... it feels like a novelization more than reportage. Ten years of following these women went into this book but the author seems more concerned with transcriptio" Read more of this review »

Witches by Sam George-Allen
"Sam George-Allen weaves her own story through the book in a way that is considered and careful not to overwhelm the core of her chapter - groups of women from a range of backgrounds, identities, and vocations.

I particularly loved Liz Duck-Chong's wri" Read more of this review »

A lot more about opera than any other art form, which I didn't anticipate, but still great.

“I read once that the human body slowly pushes shrapnel back out through the skin. That a shard of metal can take years to reach the surface and finally truly be expelled. Veterans get bits coming out of them decades after wars. Could the same thing happen to memories? Perhaps that was what I was feeling: an itchy, irksome thing, a foreign object inside me, moving just millimeters every year, tearing through me until it breached.”
Bri Lee, Eggshell Skull

“Driving and sex are both privileges granted at certain ages, both can do irreparable damage when done recklessly, but only driving requires tests, checkpoints and licences. I don’t understand why the government—at schools and through public education programs—doesn’t teach people about consent the way we teach them about drink-driving. After all, overconsumption of alcohol often leads to horrific consequences in both activities. Why can a man be charged with negligent, reckless driving after getting himself drunk, but he can argue that the same level of voluntary intoxication led him to honestly and mistakenly believe a woman consented to intercourse, and be acquitted of a rape charge accordingly?”
Bri Lee, Eggshell Skull

“Judges tell juries: if a defendant lies, it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s guilty, but if a woman is crying as she dials triple zero after being raped, she might just be putting on a show.”
Bri Lee, Eggshell Skull

Polls

This poll is for the 'first' quarterly Non-fiction selection in our BT group. We had an outstanding response in nominations, with even more members holding off for the next quarter. I can only hope to see a book discussion that is half as lively.

Should we have a tie, there will be a very short 3 day additional poll to select one winner this quarter. However, if this non-fiction selection stays this popular - there could be multiple winners in the future. Time and thread participation will tell...
