Good Reading

GR 12Wonder what to read in this hot summer? Good Reading magazine provides fantastic reviews, author interviews and book recommendations. I can’t wait to see the Dec issue to come out. So stay tuned.

In Dec issue Aussie favourite Fiona McIntosh is back with The Perfumer’s Secret and an article she wrote for GR about her research trips to France, during which she crafted her own fragrance. Professor Robert Power, an award-winning short story writer and acclaimed novelist, tells us about his latest semi-fantastical offering Tidetown and his work in Zimbabwe that inspired his characters. We’re joined by Peter Garrett, who takes us on a tour of his bookshelf, and we also dip into a conversation with one of the world’s most fascinating scientists. Leaf through our reviews and Summer Reading Guide to find your next book to enjoy in the sunshine, and for dog lovers, we’ve got two canine-themed articles featuring posing French bulldogs and a labrador detective called Monty.
