Pamela Bone, author and journalist with The Age (Melbourne) has a new book out. Bad Hair Days is a memoir, written after she began suffering the effects of incurable bone cancer. The review by Morag Fraser is well worth a look.
Bone has written eloquently on religion: on good and bad religion, on politicians urging us to take up religion, on women wearing the hijab and the burqa and more. She's a feminist and secularist, not strident but thoughtful and courageous.
Thankyou for this Greg, and thankyou Nigel Sinnott. I have been only partly aware of the writing of Pamela Bone. Now I feel very sad that she will not be continuing to comment on the times.
