            When people pick up this book, I suppose they'll be hoping for glossy and sexy. Here it is... You catch your eyes at your reflection in the mirror on the wall, in the lap-dance room. You see a face look back at you as you bring your arms around their shoulders, press the pink seq...uined fabric around your chest into their face. Who is that woman in the reflection? Two selves intertwine and it leaves you, in the dance room, making a decision that winged liner is now just for work. Because you don't know which self you are looking at right now, which person you are. The song stops and you break out of your trance and ask if he'd like to extend. Rita is an escort, one of the best in Australia. It all began on a whim at 18, after she rang the number on a sign looking for nude models. Estranged from her parents and always the outsider, she quickly learns the sex industry is comprised of many other people just like her. Rita becomes immersed in this world-the drugs, the late nights, the glamour, being an outcast, the attention and validation from men and, like a sponge, she soaks it all up. Mostly she thrives on how taboo her life has become. Her only stable relationships are with her two older siblings and when they both suicide, within eight months of each other, her life spirals. In this achingly honest memoir, Rita learns that death and trauma do not always bring grand transformative experiences. Sometimes in order to go forward, we have to write our own stories and choose to keep living. With its unflinching, compelling and darkly funny narrative, Come announces a fearless new talent in Australian writing.

            New Zealanders choose to represent ourselves to the world wearing black and not just the All Blacks, Tall Blacks and Silver Ferns. Many of our fashion designers choose black as the cornerstone of their collections, and a great deal of our cultural icons (think Fred Dagg) are also... characterised by wearing black. BLACK is a gorgeously illustrated celebration and exploration of New Zealand's obsession with clothing ourselves in black - in society, power and politics, cultural icons, sport, fashion, film and music, from the Little Black Dress to the All Black jersey, Dunedin goths, the businesspeople of Lambton Quay and the patched jackets of gang members. Doris de Pont, founder of the Fashion Museum of New Zealand and curator of the pop-up exhibition Black in Fashion, has brought together 10 richly illustrated essays on the importance of black in the New Zealand psyche in a collection to wow and inspire.

            Long before SKII, La Prairie, or the coveted Creme de la Mer, there was Helena Rubinstein. Your mother or grandmother probably used Helena Rubinstein creams or cosmetics once upon a time. But not that many people know about Helena's Australian connections. She was little known an...d has been virtually forgotten, but her extraordinary life spanned nearly a century (she died in 1965 at the age of ninety-three) and three continents. She was banished by her family to Australia at age 24 for refusing to accept an arranged marriage and as a result, became a pioneer who reinvented beauty for modern times. Napoleon Perdis says that he is inspired by Helena. She really was a Polish modern day Scarlett O'Hara! This is the extraordinary story of the woman who created a cosmetic empire and gave it her name, of an entrepreneur who started with nothing except a belief in the strength of women. The eldest of eight girls in a poor Jewish Orthodox family, Helena was born in Krakow, Poland, in 1872. When she was banished to Australia her mother decided to slip a few pots of skin cream, made by a chemist friend of the family, into her daughter's suitcase. Barely two decades later, the cream her mother gave her had become the foundation of her fortune. Coleraine in Victoria, where her uncle was a shopkeeper, might have been an awful place but it did not lack for lanolin, the secret ingredient in Helena's creams. To disguise the sheep oil's pungent pong, Helena experimented with lavender, pine bark and water lilies. At the forefront of women's rights movements, Helena opened her first beauty institute in Collins Street, Melbourne in 1902, the year that women obtained the right to vote in Australia. Always ahead of her competitors (Arden, Factor, Revlon, Lauder), she developed marketing and advertising techniques that revolved around skin care and makeup, eventually opening beauty institutes in Australia, London, Paris, and New York. Using science to create cosmetics, she taught women all
