My copy of Australian Cultural Studies A Reader was eaten by the dog.
If the Chabon article was an academic piece it would have had a much narrower and stronger intellectual focus. Actually it would never have been published in GQ it would have been have been in some obscure men's, fashion, cultural studies journal. And it would not have got the coverage outside of GQ that is receiving. It was attached to The Shortlist Daily which is sent out by The Monthly. So it's pushing people's buttons somewhere and it's also posted on PTO. I only...
47 The Hanging by Lotte and Soren Hammer A brother & sister writing team and the first book in the series. The translation is efficient as it captures the main police protagonists in depth, mind you I'm starting to believe that their are particular archetypes working in this genre which a lot of writers are adhering too, albeit with some variations on the theme and crimes committed. The criminals in this have a weird sense of topical social justice operating and it...

In my experience and I guess depending on his career it would be better to give it to him when he is 25. Personally I believe 21 year old males lack maturity and common sense and as a father its a view shared by a few of my friends with sons that age.Been in Bowral this Canberra long weekend. Found a couple of interesting op shops, one had BB LE Gant chinos. Some interesting bands for shirts and if your about a 46 a great Italian Silk/Wool jacket sadly it was too small...
What position does he play?The festival of the boot is looking good this year.Edit. WellI guess it depends on which side of the fence your on and as someone whose mantra is ''there's all ways next year.' As their team didn't even make the eight. Bring back Roy and HG.
