VICTORIA UNIVERSITY PRESS APRIL account documents the events that cul-
minated in the landmark ruling that
made abortion legal in Australia and
caused a public inquiry that humiliat-
ed a powerful government and glam-
orous police force. With forensic skill
and psychological subtlety, this is a
story of corruption, suffering, murder, suicide, courtroom drama,
and political machinations. Artfully combining cultural history,
investigative journalism, and true crime, this analysis examines
the full spectrum of people involved, from the women themselves
to the lawmakers, police, campaigners, and abortionists—who
included a multimillionaire philanthropist, a communist bush
poet, a timid aesthete, and a bankrupt slaughterman. A fascinat-
ing and disturbing backstory to an issue that remains ever divi-
sive, this compelling narrative is an important contribution to
the ongoing abortion debate.

Caribbean, this breakthrough collec-
tion is written with a profound and
disturbed sense of the history that
shapes the region and rejects all serene
and sentimental images of the islands
and its people. Imaginatively and hon-

result of the class and racial divides wrought by colonialism,
these acerbic narratives create highly fragmented but authentic
characters who are driven to test both their boundaries and their
personal identities. Emphasizing the urbanized population of
Trinidad, these stories also explore how sexual transgression can
be viewed as a commentary on a society’s fundamental character,
a topic about which many past Caribbean novelists have general-

the management carried out by the owners. From park gates and
fishponds to the distribution of woodlands and economic viabili-

A Year of Living Recklessly
in Rio de Janeiro
Carmen Michael
Winding its way down the anarchic
backstreets of bohemian Rio de
Janeiro, this intriguing adventure
looks at the extraordinary musical
culture, unapologetic hedonism, and
rampant infidelity that rule this far-
flung paradise of the tropics. Carmen
Michael, a 28-year-old travel-industry
executive, ditches her job in London and visits the Brazilian
hotspot for a vacation. Far from the glitzy beaches for which the
city is famous and written with great vivacity, this recollection
reveals the surprising truths that can emerge from poverty, isola-
tion, and an entirely different culture.
Carmen Michael contributed to Lonely Planet’s Rio de Janeiro
guide and has conducted radio interviews for ABC.
