Book review: Honestly

BOOK: Honestly
AUTHOR: Nikki Gemmell
PUBLISHER: 4th Estate (HarperCollins Publishers Aust)
RRP: $19.99


NIKKI Gemmell is an acclaimed author and a columnist for the Weekend Australian Magazine and this is a selection of her columns.

However it is much more - it is folklore.

You will delight in her controversial, forceful and sybaritic writings.

Topics that are so diverse will keep you enthralled.

To name a few: Impure Thoughts, Adults in the sin bin, The Last Taboo (about celibate relationships) and By royal command.

Also included are some new essays which show off Ms Gemmell's prose.

She is frank, insightful, entertaining, always deadly honest and a mother of four.
