            'Nakkiah Lui's writing is, as always, on point: hold-your-belly funny; pumping with politics that prompts visible discomfort.' Maxine Beneba Clark, Saturday Paper 'Her writing, whether devastating or hilarious, has always shown a great deal of accessible humanity and relentless i...ntelligence.' Guardian 'We needed a new David Williamson, someone who speaks to Australia and Australians now. We've found her in Nakkiah.' Alex Broun, playwright 'Mount Druitt's answer to Lena Dunham.' Belvoir Theatre 'If there is such a thing as a rockstar playwright, Nakkiah Lui is it.' Fran Kelly, RN Love, politics and other things you shouldn't talk about at dinner Charlotte Gibson is a lawyer with a brilliant career ahead of her. As her father Ray says, she could be the next female Indigenous Waleed Aly. But she has other ideas. First of all, it's Christmas. Second of all, she's in love. The thing is, her fiance, Francis Smith, is not what her family expected - he's unemployed, he's an experimental composer... and he's white! Bringing him and his conservative parents to meet her family on their ancestral land is a bold move. Will he stand up to the scrutiny? Or will this romance descend into farce? Love is never just black and white. It's complicated by class, politics, ambition, and too much wine over dinner. But for Charlotte and Francis, it's mostly complicated by family. Secrets are revealed, prejudices outed and old rivalries get sorted through. What can't be solved through diplomacy can surely be solved by a good old-fashioned dance-off. They're just that kind of family. Award-winning writer Nakkiah Lui shows why she is one of this country's most in-demand young voices, delivering cutting satire that is both seductively subversive and thoroughly delightful.

            Updated with new chapters and written with her trademark deadpan humour, Urzila's memoir is full of great stories. Urzila's accidental beginning in stand-up has led to an incredibly successful career in comedy, with regular gigs on Channel 10's Have you Been Paying Attention? in ...Australia, and 7 Days in NZ, as well as sell-out shows in comedy festivals across Australia and New Zealand. But life hasn't always been a bundle of laughs. Urzila talks candidly about her childhood with a great family, apart from her abusive dad, and about growing up in South Africa. She shares crazy but true tales about her OE, her move to New Zealand, coming out, getting married and having children, and her recent comedy success in Australia. This is a great read from one of our most loved and most popular comedians.

            The controversy about the Elgin Marbles continues to rage. This book will be the first to propound a system for the return of cultural property, based on human rights law principles that are being developed by the courts to decide whether artworks, manuscripts and sculptures have... cultural importance and have been acquired in circumstances which morally require their return to enable peoples to enjoy the 'keys to their history' and in some cases to enable the better appreciation of cultural objects that have been important to the understanding of human progress. The book examines how the past can be experienced - by everyone. It will ask what is the difference between an original and a perfect copy, and in what circumstances that difference should require uplifting of the relic and bringing it back home. Geoffrey Robertson has been involved in a number of celebrated cases - he acted with Amal Clooney to provide the Greek Government with legal arguments for reuniting the Parthenon Marbles, and took successful action for Tasmanian Aboriginals to force London's Natural History Museum to return the remains of their ancestors. In this book he will discuss these cases, and will conclude by describing, in non-legal language, a rule that can be applied to decide in particular cases how museums and private collections should distinguish treasures that are not 'theirs'.

            Malcolm Young: The Man Who Made Ac/Dc

            Malcolm Young: The Man Who Made Ac/Dc (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Malcolm Young was the founder and the driving force of AC/DC, a man who possessed what many have called 'the greatest right hand in rock and roll'. That riff-producing mitt provided the muscle behind such signature songs as 'Highway to Hell', 'Back in Black', 'A Long Way to the T...op' and many others, helping AC/DC survive shifting musical trends and numerous in-house dramas to stand tall as the biggest rock band on the planet. Yet Malcolm was the most unpretentious man to ever strap on a wide-bodied Gretsch. 'I've never felt like a pop star,' he once told Rolling Stone. 'This is a 9-to-5 sort of gig.' This is the first biography to focus exclusively on Malcolm, and tells of his remarkable rise from working-class Glasgow and Sydney to the biggest stages in the world. One of eight, Young always seemed destined for a life in rock and roll: his brother George was a key member of Australian legends The Easybeats and was also a huge early mentor and supporter of AC/DC. His brother Angus, the oldest schoolboy in the world, stood alongside Malcolm in AC/DC for the best part of 40 years. Malcolm lived hard and fast, enduring incredible hardship when the band first started out in the mid 1970s, surviving the terrible loss of Bon Scott in 1980, and suffering numerous personal demons, including alcoholism. It was a series of severe health problems that led to his death, aged just 64, in 2017, from complications arising from the dementia with which he'd been diagnosed in 2014. Yet without Malcolm Young, there would have been no AC/DC - it's as simple as that. As the band's former bassist, Mark Evans, wrote of Malcolm: 'He was the driven one, the planner, the schemer, the behind the scenes guy, ruthless and astute.'
