The Book

Nick Cave as nov­el­ist. For any­one who at­tempted And the Ass Saw the An­gel, it’s an anx­ious propo­si­tion. Fear not, though, with his lat­est hard­back of­fer­ing, The Sick Bag Song. An en­gag­ing ad­ven­ture de­tail­ing his 22-stop 2014 tour of the US, it de­liv­ers great in­sight into the Prince of Dark­ness and his many var­ied vi­sions. As for the ti­tle, it sim­ply refers to the fact he penned a lot of the prosey mash-up on the back of air­line sick bags. $24.99; Text Pub­lish­ing

The Doco

Jen­nifer Pee­dom should be bet­ter known – the lo­cal di­rec­tor and Race Around Oz alum’s lat­est ef­fort, Sherpa, yet an­other bril­liant high­light of her tal­ent and a piece that war­rants its BAFTA nom­i­na­tion. Cap­tur­ing the worst tragedy to ever hit Everest – when, in 2014, an avalanche blew apart the climb­ing route, killing 16 Nepalese guides – the story de­tails that fate­ful day (cam­eras hap­pened to be there and rolling) and the sur­viv­ing Sher­pas’ de­sire to re­claim the moun­tain they call Cho­mol­ungma.

The Event

Ac­claimed Dan­ish chef René Redzepi will next month serve up his in­ter­na­tional food sym­po­sium at MAD SYD. Loosely dubbed a foodie TED talk, it will fea­ture such aproned rock stars as Mo­mo­fuku’s David Chang, Os­te­ria Frances­cana’s Massimo Bot­tura and lead­ing lo­cal lady Kylie Kwong. The theme for this year’s con­fer­ence is fu­ture foods and will take place at the Syd­ney Opera House on April 3. syd­ney­op­er­a­house.com
