Charles Bean Charles Bean
by Ross Coulthart

On the eve of the centenary of Gallipoli Ross Coulthart tells the real story of the iconic Australian war correspondent.

C.E.W. Bean's wartime reports and photographs mythologised the Australian soldier and helped spawn the notion that the Anzacs achieved something nation-defining on the shores of Gallipoli and the battlefields of western Europe. In his quest to get the truth, Bean often faced death beside the Diggers in the trenches of Gallipoli and the Western Front — and saw more combat than many.

But did Bean tell Australia the whole story of what he knew? In this fresh new biography Ross Coulthart explores the man behind the legend ... more

Not Not That Kind of Girl
by Lena Dunham

'Not That Kind of Girl is hilarious, artful, and staggeringly intimate; I read it shivering with recognition.' — Miranda July

Lena Dunham is many, many things. Creator, actor, producer and writer of the award-winning cult television show Girls, but the first thing you have to know about Lena is that she's unafraid to say exactly what she thinks. She's also provocative, very funny, original, dead-pan, disturbing, neurotic, simultaneously deep and shallow, and often way, way out there. This book is a collection of her experiences, stories that have, as she describes them, little baby morals: about dieting, about dressing, about friendship and existential crises. It's all about trying to work out what to wear, what to say and how to be, every single day.

'No, I am not a sexpert, a psychologist or a dietician. But I am a girl with a keen interest in having it all, sending hopeful dispatches from the frontlines of that struggle.'
