            Black is the New White (Paperback)

            '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.

            Funny woman, Instagram star and international comedy sensation, Celeste Barber's Challenge Accepted! is a hilarious and outspoken guide to life, unwanted gas and how to rock a sexy scar. It's real, like totally, really real. Actor, writer and comedian, Celeste Barber is one very ...funny woman - not to mention a global social media comedy phenomenon. Amassing over 3.8 million followers in three years with her hilarious #celestechallengeaccepted pics, she has been dubbed 'Australian Comedy Queen' by ABC Online; voted The Funniest Lady on Instagram; gone on sold-out comedy tours of the US; and won herself fans ranging from Tom Ford and Ruby Rose to Amy Schumer and Dawn French. In the tradition of Tina Fey's Bossypants, Challenge Accepted! is part memoir, part comedy routine, part advice manual. Calling out our ridiculous obsession with celebrity Instagram culture, Celeste reveals all, including her thoughts on keeping it real, the secrets to love, friendship, family and marriage (oh hai, #hothusband), and how to deal with life's many challenges, like, motherhood, and what to do when your local bottleshop owner can't remember your name. Celeste is raucous, real and hilarious. Bring it on.

            Released in 2002, Rabbit Proof Fence was internationally lauded for exposing the misery and realities behind the policy of forced removal of Aboriginal halfcaste children. In 1931, three young indigenous girls were snatched from their mother as part of the stolen generation and p...laced in a settlement 1,500 miles away across West Australias Gibson Desert. The film is based on their journey and escape as they follow the rabbit proof fence to return home. Behrendt offers her unique perspective on the Rabbit Proof Fence and examines what makes the story so integral to Australian film history.

            Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned

            For readers of Nora Ephron, Tina Fey, and David Sedaris, this hilarious, poignant, and extremely frank collection of personal essays confirms Lena Dunham - the acclaimed creator, producer, and star of HBO's GIRLS - as one of the brightest and most original writers working today. ...'NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL is hilarious, artful, and staggeringly intimate; I read it shivering with recognition' - Miranda July From the acclaimed creator, producer and star of HBO's GIRLS comes a hilarious, wise and fiercely candid collection of personal essays that establishes Lena Dunham as one of the most original young talents writing today. In NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL, Dunham illuminates the experiences that are part of making one's way in the world: falling in love, feeling alone, being ten pounds overweight despite eating only health food, having to prove yourself to a room full of men twice your age, finding true love, and most of all, having the guts to believe that your story is one that deserves to be told. Exuberant, moving and keenly observed, NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL is a series of despatches from the frontlines of the struggle that is growing up. 'I'm already predicting my future shame at thinking I had anything to offer you,' Dunham writes. 'But if I can take what I've learned and make one menial job easier for you, or prevent you from having the kind of sex where you feel you must keep your sneakers on in case you want to run away during the act, then every misstep of mine will have been worthwhile.'
