Good Grief

Cover Story: Good Grief

So that was 2015…wow. In this special New Year Edition of The Big Issue, we look at the year that’s about to end, and take the pulse of 2016. Just what does lie ahead? We take our best guess… 

Also in this issue:

Alan Attwood reflects on Snoopy, the cartoon dog that captivated audiences for 50 years and is set to become a star on the big screen; Fiona Scott-Norman tells us the key to success in 2016; Ricky French heads north to solve a family mystery; our Arts Editors lay down their 2015 Top 10 books, film, music and home entertainment – and what to look out for in the New Year; and in Roving Eye, young Australians from South Sudan balance embracing the new with honouring tradition. 

Starring in the Vendor Profile this edition is Lynette from Perth. We have Streetsheet contributions from Mark in Adelaide, Russell in Melbourne, Teagan in Perth and Pete in Brisbane. We also have a great photo of vendor power couple, Eddie and Cindy – who recently relocated from Adelaide to Brisbane – with former hometown colleagues, national operations manager Jeremy and vendor Mark W from Adelaide.
