Quentin Bryce / BOOKED OUT

21-Apr-2017. 12:00 PM

As Australia's first female Governor-General, Quentin Bryce handwrote more than fifty letters each week. She wrote to those she had met and connected with as her role took her from palaces to outback schools, from war zones to memorials, from intimate audiences to lavish ceremonies. Generous, witty and always heartfelt, her letter-writing skills were honed at boarding school, from where she would write to her parents every Sunday.

Dear Quentin is a rich collection of the letters the Governor-General wrote and received during her six-year term to prime ministers Rudd and Gillard, VC Mark Donaldson, pals Anne Summers and Wendy McCarthy, Indigenous elders, war vets, Girl Guides, grandchildren, as well as the proud owner of a calf called Quentin.

Kathy Lette / BOOKED OUT

Much has been written of late of the difficulties facing parents of autistic children with one recent study linking the stress involved with parenting children on the spectrum to that of a combat soldier. But what happens when these children grow up? What happens when they want to have a relationship or sex? How does a parent navigate that minefield?

Kathy Lette explores this taboo topic in her latest novel, Best Laid Plans. Written in Kathy’s witty style, it shines a light on a previously undiscussed subject. Kathy proves
that when it comes to sex, we all have special needs and, even the best laid plans can come unstuck.
