            Kitty Flanagan is all about giving the people what they want, and it's become increasingly apparent that people want 488 Rules for Life. Ever since she appeared on the ABC's The Weekly with her segment about this 'pretend' book, she's been stopped in the street, approached in the... supermarket, the cafe, even the dog park by people wanting to know where they could get a copy. Kitty says: 'Who knew other people loved rules as much as I do? I'm so excited, this feels like it could be more than a book, it could be a movement, a way of life even! With any luck, we may well see someone from the 488 Rules Party standing at the next election. However, let's be clear about one thing, it won't be me: Rule no. 242 - Comedians should not be Prime Minister. Nor should Shannon Noel. Or any other actor or celebrity who just so happens to say something with which you agree. 488 Rules is a book for anyone who believes good manners and common sense are the way forward. It's time to make the world idiot-free and lovely.'

            Dear Girls: Intimate Tales, Untold Secrets & Advice for Living Your Best Life (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In her hit Netflix comedy special Baby Cobra, an eight-month pregnant Ali Wong resonated so strongly that she even became a popular Halloween costume. Wong told the world her remarkably unfiltered thoughts on marriage, sex, Asian culture, working women, and why you never see new ...mum comics on stage but you sure see plenty of new dads. The sharp insights and humour are even more personal in this completely original collection. She shares the wisdom she's learned from a life in comedy and reveals stories from her life offstage, including the brutal single life in New York (i.e. the inevitable confrontation with erectile dysfunction), reconnecting with her roots (and drinking snake blood) in Vietnam, tales of being a wild child growing up in San Francisco, and parenting war stories. Though addressed to her daughters, Ali Wong's letters are absurdly funny, surprisingly moving, and enlightening (and gross) for all.

            'He was courageous. He was ambitious. He was skilled. He was visionary. He could be ruthless. He was someone born of a new nation. But he was of a time now long past. And yet in the language of a later generation it could be said he had the right stuff ... Michael Molkentin captu...res [Ross Smith] brilliantly.' - Andy Thomas, NASA Astronaut (Retired) In November 1919, a year after the Great War, four Australian servicemen made a unique and epoch-making journey home. In the open cockpit of a twin-engine Vickers Vimy bi-plane, brothers Ross and Keith Smith and mechanics Wally Shiers and Jim completed the 18,000 kilometre flight from Britain to Australia. The 28-day journey, part of a competition sponsored by the Australian government, made the Smith brothers internationally famous and marked Australia's emergence into the air age. Ross Smith's fame would be short lived: he would be killed in an air accident less than three years later on the eve of an attempt to make the first ever circumnavigation of the world by air. Born on a South Australian cattle station, Smith had a relatively privileged and cosmopolitan upbringing. He was, nonetheless, working as a warehouseman in Adelaide 1914 where he would have no doubt eked out a quiet and unremarkable life were it not for the war's outbreak. Enlisting in the light horse at 22 years of age, Smith survived arduous campaigns at Gallipoli and in the Sinai Desert before volunteering for the Australian Flying Corps. Smith's feats in the skies above Palestine during 1917-18 earned him a reputation as one of the great fighter pilots of the war. By the armistice he had received the Military Cross twice and the Distinguished Flying Cross three times; he was one of only three British Empire airmen to do so during the war. Smith's skill in the cockpit also saw him assigned the Middle East theatre's only twin-engine bomber during the war's final year, a machine he used to support T. E. Lawrence 'of Arabia's' campaign against the Turks i
