Culture

The New Yorker


I've just subscribed to The New Yorker — it works out around $3.50 an issue. The writing is so good, full of depth. Just to pull the beautiful covers out of the letter box is worth it. But probably it is the cartoons that are my favourite thing!


People

Michael Pollan


I find it hard to describe to people why I read and adore Michael Pollan. He writes about food, yet something in his books is deeply inspiring. His curiosity, truthfulness, and humour propel his discoveries and explorations of how our world works - via food production and eating habits. And there's an optimism in his work that's rare.


Places

Charlie Parkers


Charlie Parkers is an underground sandstone bar in Paddington recently opened by the Merivale group. It hits an interesting note between cosiness and intrigue. The bar itself could be lifted from Manet's enigmatic final painting. There are fresh herbs hanging, rugs on the floor. Cocktails are plant based - with one inspired by Centennial Park, another that appears with a small piece of rope floating in it.


Things

The Bosch Novels


An absorbing series. A treat to settle down with "The Wrong Side of Goodbye" — released just a few weeks ago. Connelly is a master plotter: incidents and characters connect and intersect with the precision of a Swiss watch. You roam Los Angeles with detective Hieronymus Bosch. The writing is realistic and detailed yet with an underlying dark and mythical quality.


Thoughts

Freedom is Wealth


Jesse Kamm is a Los Angeles designer with her own label of beautifully produced clothes. What interests me most is her approach to work: she and her family spend several months of the year living off the grid in Guatemala. To Kamm, "freedom is wealth". How bold to give yourself time to creatively renew.


Wildism

Beautiful Details


Authored by three generations of the Eames family, this book is a visual tour of the lives of furniture designers Charles and Ray Eames: from movies they made, to innovations in furniture, to photography. Their generous approach to life expressed in Charles quote "The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests"
