              When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over

              A poignant, bright and elegiac work of illustrated nonfiction by one of Australia's most revered comics makers. When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over is a quietly enthralling and intimate work about the search for meaning in the everyday, and what it might mean to belong. ...A record of a year of a life, When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over is an attempt to pin down time, to capture the most beautiful and fleeting moments that we tend to rush past. This is the story of a person and those that surround her. It's about ageing, love, and loss, and how we might try to balance work and family and art in this confusing modern world. Funny, sad, and perfectly magnetic, When One Person Dies The Whole World Is Over draws you in deep; before you know it you're caring intensely about the lives into which we are given some precious glimpses.

              This boundary-shifting fusion of thinking, storytelling, and meditation takes as its starting point five axioms: * `Give Me a Child Before the Age of 7 and I'll Give You the (Wo)Man' * `History Repeats Itself...' * `Those Who Forget the Past are Condemned to Repeat It' * `You Can...'t Enter The Same River Twice' * `Time Heals All Wounds'. These beliefs - or intuitions - about the role the past plays in our present are often evoked as if they are timeless and self-evident truths. It is precisely because they are neither, yet still we are persuaded by them, that they tell us a great deal about the forces that shape our culture and the way we live. The past shapes the present - they teach us this in schools and universities. But the past cannot be visited like an ageing relative; the past doesn't live in little zoo enclosures. Half the time, the past is nothing less than the beating heart of the present. So, how to speak of the searing, unpindownable power that the past - ours, our family's, our culture's - wields now?

              The Impossible Fairytale tells the story of the nameless `Child', who struggles to make a mark on the world, and her classmate Mia, whose spoiled life is everything the Child's is not. At school, their fellow students seem consumed by an almost murderous rage. Adults are nearly i...nvisible, and the society the children create on their own is marked by soul-crushing hierarchies and an underlying menace. One day after hours the Child sneaks into the classroom to add ominous sentences to her classmates' notebooks, setting in motion a series of cataclysmic events.A teacher, who is also this book's author, wakes from an intense dream. When she arrives at her next class, she recognises a student: the Child, who knows about the events of the novel's first half, which took place years before.The Impossible Fairytale is a fresh and terrifying exploration of the ethics of art making and of the stinging consequences of neglect.

              The much-anticipated follow-up novel from the wunderkind author of the widely-acclaimed Pink Mountain on Locust Island In Gunk Baby, we join narrator Leen just as she opens an ear-cleaning and massage salon at the Topic Heights Shopping Centre. She meets Huy, an engineering stude...nt, and Jean-Paul, a pharmacist, who are both obsessed with a cryptic, quasi-socialist online forum which seek the active disruption of the routines of capitalism on small scales. Leen finds herself involved in activities they call 'Resisting Acts', intended to be 'psychologically violent' to the people in power and the systems holding them up. Soon Leen starts to notice increasingly odd behaviour around her - and also it seems that managers of other stores in the centre are being murdered. In nonstop prose, Gunk Baby takes aim at capitalism and class, orientalism and the Zen movement, violence, fashion, minimalism and middle-class boredom. This novel is an Australian retort to the global literary industry from a voice younger and newer and more critical than most. Gunk Baby is a collage, playing with the sterility of modern suburbia and all the beige, neutral, ecru tones of aesthetic minimalism.

              Dizzy Limits: Recent Experiments in Australian Nonfiction (Paperback)

              What is 'experimental nonfiction'? Like all nonfiction writing it is steeped in facts, in real events, and in real people, with the aim of communicating information, argument, and truth. It differs from traditional nonfiction in that it tries to convey its meaning using unorthodo...x form, or style, or voice, or point-of-view, or approach, or method. The very best pieces of experimental nonfiction are those in which any unorthodox element adds richly to the meaning and authenticity of the subject matter - to the point that it would be difficult to imagine the piece being successful without the experimenting. Dizzy Limits collects the very best examples of the above mentioned experimental nonfiction from our most intellectually ambitious and creatively curious writers. Dizzy Limits includes pieces that explore: the body and its relationship to the world; climate change; the connection of First Nations people to land; trans motherhood; leeches; computers pretending to be humans; and so much more - and all in truly dazzling and unexpected ways. Contributors include: Noelle Janaczewska, Jean Bachoura, Ellen van Neerven, Jessie Berry-Porter, W.J.P. Newnham, Bella Klaver, Amanda Stewart, Eloise Grills, Oscar Schwartz, Lucy Van, Rebecca Giggs, Evelyn Araluen, Tess Pearson, Quinn Eades, Vivienne Cutbush, Shu-Ling Chua, Holly Childs, Oliver Reeson, Sam Wallman, Sophia O'Rourke, Nikkola Mikocki- Bleeker, Harry Saddler, Elena Gomez, Autumn Royal, Stephanie Guest and Kate Riggs. 'This book is an uprising, puncturing the prefab moves of literary nonfiction. It's a blueprint for a miraculous reanimation of the form's capacity for revelation and self-renewal.' - Maria Tumarkin 'I'm totally for Dizzy Limits. Everything here expands the scale, reconfigures writing, entertains and inhabits my mind long after I'm done reading them all. And then I come back. It's where to get lost, like I love.' - Eileen Myles

              Focusing on a critically underrepresented part of Australian culture (the many ways non-male participants in sport negotiate the traditionally male spectacle of athleticism) this accessible and inclusive collection investigates the way sporting bodies and achievements are portray...ed in Australian media and daily life. The book understands the term `sport' in the widest possible sense, and applies the definition of `women' in the same broad way to include trans, gender diverse, non-binary, intersex, and otherwise non-cis women. Several essays are also written from and/or about queer, gay, and bisexual women. Essays examine the way women athletes' experience are marginalised and under-reported, and attempt to de-centre the status quo of sports writing and commentary as currently dominated by male perspectives and expertise.

              Do you accidentally get turned-on while watching a nature documentary? Are you dating someone whose tattoos are the worst but you're having the best sex of your life? Are you feeling emasculated because your girlfriend has had more one-night stands than you? Never fear: the world...'s first mother-son sex and relationships advice duo is here to save you from yourself. The longest-running regular column in The Lifted Brow , the `Law School' column has been offering stern warnings, enthusiastic encouragement, and sage (and not-so-sage) wisdom to desperate lovers and sexual adventurists alike since 2011. This collection brings the best of `Law School' into an excruciatingly funny and semi-explicit illustrated book of advice you never knew you needed. Hilarious, rude, and surprisingly heart-warming, Law School covers the practical and ethical dilemmas of sex and relationships from two very different perspectives. Ben and Jenny challenge the way we think and talk about the intimate, in funny and earnest banter. Their advice will either save your love life, or ruin it forever.
