    Ape House

    by Sara Gruen.

    She says “An insightful

    entertaining and easy to

    read novel. I certainly wanted to learn more

    about bonobos, and the interesting work be-

    ing undertaken at the Great Ape Trust.”

    A Fine Romance, by Candice Bergen, begins

    with Bergen’s charming

    first husband, French

    director Louis Malle, but

    her real romance begins

    when she discovers over-

    powering love for her

    daughter after years of

    ambivalence about moth-

    erhood. As Chloe grows up, Bergen finds her

    comic genius in the biggest TV role of the 80s,

    Murphy Brown, and makes unwanted headlines

    when Dan Quayle pulls her into the 1992 presi-

    dential campaign. A natural writer, Candice is

    hilarious, brutally honest, down-to-earth, and

    wise. (

    Troll Hunting

    by Ginger Gorman.

    In 2013, journalist Ginger

    Gorman was trolled online.

    She received scores of hate-

    ful tweets, including a death

    threat. A picture of Ginger

    heavily pregnant alongside

    her husband and two-and-

    half year old daughter

    appeared on a fascist website. Understandably

    she was terrified, but once the attack subsided,

    she found herself curious. Who were these

    trolls? How and why did they coordinate such

    an attack? And how does someone fight back

    against a troll?

    An intense and compelling read, Troll Hunting

    is an important window into not just the mindset

    and motivation of trolls, but the history of this

    kind of aberrant behaviour. Ginger Gorman has

    gained unprecedented access to trolls, even

    formed strange and enduring relationships with

    them, and her comprehensive investigation into

    what makes them tick has given us a brilliant

    book that is impossible to put down.

    Aurore is in her early fifties, separated from her

    husband and living with her younger daughter. She

    finds she is having to contend with frequent ‘bouf-

    fees de chaleur’ (hot flushes). She is also frustrated

    by changes in her workplace and unsettled by the

    news that her older daughter is pregnant. When she

    accidentally bumps into her significant first love she

    begins to reflect on decisions of the past and contem-

    plate possibilities for the future.

    Agnes Jaoui plays the role of Aurore with great

    warmth and conviction and there are some memora-

    ble scenes depicting the rich connections between

    family and friends. This is a touching and engaging

    film which manages to enlighten as well as entertain.
