Mia Freedman is a well-known media personality these days, but is still best known (and loved) for her weekly column in the Age Sunday Life magazine. Her columns are quirky and down-to-earth musings on the curiosities of everyday life. This collection of essays is in much the same vein. Subtitled “confessions from the watercooler of life”, her subjects range from the sublime to the ridiculous (often within the same essay!). She is curious and courageous, and will happily discuss subjects that less brave souls may have often thought but never put into words!
Witty, honest and engaging, reading Mia Culpa is like having a cup of tea and a chat with a good friend. Highly enjoyable! Paperback, $29.95
