Books:


This is a book that needed to be written, to answer questions that we are all afraid to ask, and to help in a situation with which we are all acquainted but prefer to avoid. It’s a book that you don’t want to need. Author Catherine Rahal shares her early tragic experience with her spouse’s death and subsequent losses. Her personal insights inform this book, allowing her to provide an easier out for you. This book of lists and reminders serves to transition you and your loved ones through that inevitable last journey. This book is not about taxes, although it touches on that topic too.

Fashion:


Jenny Fenwick bought a Mary Quant original — scandalously cut above the knee — in the mid-'60s when she was 17 years old. Quant was a revolutionary fashion designer, whose colourful, sexy miniskirts epitomized Swinging London in the 1960s and influenced youth culture around the world. She died this week at the age of 93. Fenwick spoke with As It Happens host, Nil Köksal, about the dress and Quant's influence on the world of fashion.
