Helping people help themselves
In his latest film, Hyde Park on Hudson, Bill Murray has taken on his most challenging role: President Franklin D Roosevelt. Greg Truman tracked down the elusive actor to see how he’s handling the attention the role has brought him.
Tracey Thorn from Everything but the Girl talks stage fright, motherhood and her new memoir; veteran Scottish-Australian singer Eric Bogle discusses his latest album; David Cohen looks back on his long and enriching career as a non-surfer; and in ‘Roving Eye’, we present some striking images from portrait photographer Ingvar Kenne. Regular readers may remember our ‘Skinny Love’ (Ed#418) cover story from late last year, in which Martha Brown described living with anorexia nervosa. In this edition, Martha provides a progress report on her protracted battle, while Gabriella Coslovich reflects on the oppressive beauty standards young women continue to face.
We have a couple for this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’: Michelle and Neil from Sydney. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Craig M, Kate and Brenton P in Melbourne; and from Andrew W, Helen and James P in Sydney.
