A CESC N A s FR s and l l e t Lette t the joy y h t Ka bou a son a g n R i E is CA RT ges of ra ndrome en sy chall sperger’s A w ith

(stephen cooper \ newspix)

athy Lette has forged a glittering career by being candid. As a bestselling author of 13 books – including the iconic ’70s novel Puberty Blues – she has covered everything from fidelity to hormones, toy boys to motherhood, divorce to silicone. Yet there has always been one off-limits topic: her eldest child, Julius Robertson. When Julius was three years old, he was diagnosed with “high-functioning autism”, otherwise known as Asperger’s syndrome, a lifelong neurological condition that affects how the brain processes information – particularly reading social situations and non-verbal cues. Characteristics of Asperger’s can also include an exceptionally good memory, above-average intelligence, a very blunt and factual communication style, and an ability to focus deeply and obsessively on one subject. Lette says from the moment she heard the paediatrician’s diagnosis, she made a conscious decision not to talk publicly about Julius’ condition. “I didn’t want to invade his privacy,” says Lette on the phone from her home in London’s West Hampstead. “I wanted his permission before I did talk about it, and I was incredibly nervous because, up until a couple of years ago, it was something people weren’t talking about. It was something you hid away if you had a child who was different.” Now Lette has not only written a bestselling book on the subject, Asperger’s syndrome will also be the focus of her keynote address when she visits Melbourne next week for the University of Melbourne’s Festival of Ideas. Lette, now 54, grew up in 1970s southern Sydney and achieved fame and notoriety as a teenager with her groundbreaking tell-all book about teen surf culture, Puberty Blues, which she co-wrote at 17 with Gabrielle Carey. The book’s cult status and Lette’s irrepressible chutzpah catapulted her into work as a columnist, TV presenter and writer on an American sitcom. A chance meeting with human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson on his ABC TV show Hypothetical in 1989 swept her out of her marriage to future News Ltd boss Kim Williams and over to London, where she married Robertson and had two children (Julius, now 21, and Georgina, 19). She quickly immersed herself in London’s intellectual set, socialising with the likes of Salman Rushdie, John Mortimer and Douglas Adams. Today, the writer known as Ms Quiplash for her razor-sharp wit, is neighbours with Stephen Fry and Barry Humphries, plays Scrabble with Kylie Minogue, attends red-carpet premieres with Billy Connolly, and calls Ruby Wax, Ronni Ancona, Maureen Lipman and Sandi Toksvig her “human Wonderbras”. Yet despite the high-profile friends and public life, Lette didn’t start talking about Julius’ condition until last year, when he turned 21. The catalyst was her 12th fictional book, The Boy Who Fell to Earth. Originally penned as “another novel about the sex wars”, the book quickly manifested itself into a story about Lucy, a single mother trying to raise her autistic son, Merlin. “It started pouring out at the end of my pen and I couldn’t stop writing it,” Lette says. “I thought, ‘Well, I’ll publish the book and not mention my son was on the autistic spectrum, and let the book stand on its own two literary legs’. But then a journalist in Sydney from The Australian Women’s Weekly said, ‘Isn’t it true you have a son with autism?’ And I thought, well I’m not going to lie because if I lie it will look like I’m embarrassed by Jules, and of course the opposite is true. I’m incredibly proud of him, so I asked him what to do.

r e h t o m son & Big love: Kathy Lette and son Julius (DAVe M. BeneTT/ GeTTy IMAGeS)


“For PeoPle WHo HAve A CHIlD oN tHe AutIStIC SPeCtruM, It’S A buMPy rIDe. you NeeD to FASteN your PSyCHoloGICAl SeAtbelt, but It CAN also be A GreAt Joy” “Jules loves the book and thinks it’s such a celebration of people like him. So with his love and support I very tentatively started talking about it. But I was a complete nervous wreck, because if you write comedy or satire for a living, that is your shield.” Lette believes her speech next week on “Asparagus Syndrome” at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will offer an opportunity to celebrate individuality. “There is no such thing as being normal and abnormal, there’s just ordinary and extraordinary,” she says. “For people who have a child on the autistic spectrum, it’s a bumpy ride. You need to fasten your psychological seatbelt, but it can also be a great joy and offer a different perspective on life, which can only be enriching. “As well as being open about the harrowing and heartbreaking side of raising somebody different in a judgmental world, I also want to make it a celebration of their idiosyncrasies and eccentricities. Because, as my son always says, how boring would it be if we were all the same. “He calls it a case of the bland leading the bland. As you can see he’s inherited my pun gene.”’

L

ette is not the first author to use autism as a central theme in her fiction. Her exploration joins a long line of novels, including Mark Haddon’s bestselling The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Jodi Picoult’s House Rules, Kathryn Erskine’s Mockingbird, Lisa Genova’s Love Anthony and, most recently, Melbourne writer Graeme Simsion’s runaway success, The Rosie Project, whose protagonist, Don Tillman, shows many traits most commonly associated with Asperger’s syndrome. “Don Tillman is a man who is better with ideas and projects and things than he is with emotions and people,” says Simsion, who recently returned from Los Angeles, where work has started on The Rosie Project film script for Sony Pictures. “I think most of us have known somebody like Don, and many of us have a little bit of Don in us … So many people have come up to me and said, ‘Oh he’s just like my brother’, or ‘my father-in-law’. They make that instant connection.” The prevalence of children on the autistic spectrum has risen dramatically in the past five years. Before 1980, one in 2000 children was thought to be autistic. By 2007, the Centres for Disease Control in Atlanta, US, was reporting that one in 152 American children had an autism spectrum disorder, such as Asperger’s syndrome. It now believes the figure is one in 88 children – or one in 54 if you count only boys, who are more susceptible than girls. Professor Tony Attwood, at Brisbane’s Griffith University, is one of the world’s leading authorities on Asperger’s syndrome. He believes the increasing prevalence is mostly due to growing awareness, rather than a rise in incidence. “I think the number has been there all the time; it’s just that now we’re able to identify the characteristics better of someone who is autistic,” he says.

Although Attwood says there are major differences on either end of the autistic spectrum, he firmly believes that every case needs support and guidance. “I often use visual impairment as a metaphor,” he says. “There are those kids who are blind, and then there are those kids who need glasses. The ones who are blind, are blinded to the social world, and those who need glasses are the ones who can see it, they just need to read really big print. In other words, some kids need a bit of help making friends and understanding body language and socialising, whereas there are others where that’s impossible.” Attwood first met Lette’s son when Julius was about 10. He says he is delighted at how well Julius has turned out, and describes Lette as being “lovely and wonderful”. “I give all the credit to Kathy as she has brought Asperger’s through a medium she knows best and has been able to reach people in ways a professional can’t,” he says. “Asperger’s brings out the best and worst. The best is people like Kathy, who are committed and supportive. And the worst are the school predators, who bully and tease people who are gullible, naive and vulnerable.” Lette says those raising a child with high-functioning autism face similar challenges. There can be large periods of a day in which their behaviour is perfectly conventional, and then moments when it is not. “It can be incredibly traumatising and distressing and difficult,” she says. “What I worry about in this scramble for funding, is that [just because] people with autism don’t have a white stick and they don’t have a wheelchair, it doesn’t mean they don’t need our help and they’re not worthy of it. “If you ask most mothers if you could cure it, they would, because as a mother it’s so painful to watch them suffering, and not understanding emotion, and misreading social situations. They torture themselves so much and their anxiety levels are often so high, it’s hard to try to cope.” But, despite the challenges, Lette says there are many moments of joy. She talks about Julius’ amazing and insightful comments, and the importance of always having a sense of humour – even if it is “so black you need night-vision goggles just to see your way through it”. One of Lette’s favourite stories is the time Hugh Jackman came over for dinner. While flirting outrageously with the Australian actor, Lette says she was soon interrupted by the arrival of Julius, who was 13. “I said, ‘Look darling, you’re growing a moustache’,” she says. “He just scrutinised me, and said, ‘So are you, Mum, look at those hairs on your top lip and there are quite a few on your chin as well.’ I thought, is it too late to put him back in the condom-vending machine for a refund? It was like my contraception arriving on a plate … You just never know when the grenades are going to go off.” She also recalls the time she met former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe – Lette is an avid Labour

supporter – at a charity event in the British House of Commons. As she introduced Julius to Widdecombe, he said, “Oh you’re the one my mother says is two-faced, and if so why are you wearing that one that is all wrinkly and crinkly and old?” Lette continues to champion the cause for autism. She is an ambassador for Britain’s National Autistic Society and a patron of British autism charity Anna Kennedy. She has also connected with other mothers of autistic children and receives dozens of letters and emails. “When you’re a parent of a child with special needs, you do feel isolated a lot of the time,” she says. “I really wanted to let other parents know that you’re not alone and we all go through the stages.” Even as we speak on the phone, Lette is interrupted by a friend seeking advice about schools for autistic children. She talks passionately about finding the right education, and how more than half of autistic teenagers are bullied at school. “It was hard when Julius was a teenager, because all my friends’ children were going on gap years and down the Amazon and up the Himalayas and getting work experience at Vogue and top barrister chambers. And your heart just pours out because you think, your son will never leave home, or have a girlfriend, or do anything like that … But look at my son now: he’s got his own flat, he has a beautiful, gorgeous girlfriend and is starting college. You just have to put trainer wheels on them.” \ fcarter@theweeklyreview.com.au We WelCoMe your FeeDbACk @

ention the word Heathcote and the first word that springs to mind is shiraz. It’s the region’s most widely planted grape and its shining light, but the region that’s built on ancient red Cambrian soils north of Melbourne is far from being a one-trick pony. Heathcote has been referred to as the Australian Rhône Valley, with a continental climate that starts off cool in Tooborac and warms up as it heads north towards Colbinabbin. Just like the Rhône, a wide variety of grapes flourish, but it’s only more recently that grapes other than shiraz have started to grab some attention. “Five years ago, around 80 per cent of the Heathcote wine region would have been planted to red grapes and, of that, 80 per cent would have been shiraz,” says Stephen Shelmerdine, proprietor of Shelmerdine Wines and a former director at Wine Australia.

“Certainly in the past three to five years new [vineyard] plantings have started to emerge and we now have a Joseph’s coat of different varieties and blends. It’s a much more interesting region than perhaps people thought it was going to be. People were perhaps a little conservative in their approach in the early days and planted shiraz, but didn’t chase other varieties.” The arrival of Brown Brothers, which plants a wide variety of grapes and tests the wines’ success at its Milawa cellar door, and the Chalmers family, who are pioneers of Italian varieties, has made a big difference to the diversity of grape varieties planted in Heathcote. These days you’re just as likely to see fiano or viognier filed on wine lists under white wines, while tempranillo, grenache, and mourvèdre will appear in the red wine sections. Despite many grape varieties and wine styles

And as the new varieties find their feet, shiraz is also the region’s best performer. Its potential is still to be realised – after all, the region was only classified in 1998. “We started really noticing the characters of northern, central and southern Heathcote shiraz in 2005 after a terroirs tasting and by 2010 it was obvious,” Shelmerdine says. “Broadly speaking, in the northern sites you get rich, ripe dark-berry, dark-fruit characters and by the central area you get a more subdued version of Broad palate: that. In Heathcote, on the granite soils, we are seeing stephen lots of raspberry, violets, white-pepper characters shelmerdine – cooler-climate characters.

Sparkling windows and soft ivory walls give this minimalist space the groundwork for its designer-inspired form. Polished floors and golden timber seating are offset by a stark branch supporting lighting tubes. A brown-paper roll lists menu choices, tomato tins contain cutlery, and urns dispense house-filtered H2O. \

style + the city

at home in hollywood S itting high above the streets of downtown Hollywood, this 1920s Spanish revival-style home overlooks the seemingly peaceful hillside region that surrounds an otherwise fast-paced, slick and smooth-talking “city of dreams”. Local folklore has it that Ronald Reagan lived here during his movie days, but there is no evidence of him now that Ellen Pompeo, of Grey’s Anatomy fame, her music producer husband Chris Ivery, and daughter Stella Luna have made it their home. After a chance meeting at a Christian Dior show in Paris with Martyn Lawrence Bullard – the award-winning interior designer to the stars and Million Dollar Decorators TV show personality – a friendship was struck. The couple discovered they shared with Bullard a love for the exotic styles of Morocco and Spain, along with the lifestyles of Tuscany and the south of France. As a result of this mutual design aesthetic, Pompeo’s choice of Bullard as her designer has allowed her to create a home that enjoys a convergence of styles that

are neither conflicting nor convoluted, but rather harmonious and considered. Moroccan design is referenced throughout the house, using a mix of wool dhurrie rugs from Afghanistan on the floors, a collection of mirrors from Bullard’s own line of furniture, embellished Moroccan pillows and a striking custom-built Mousharabi screen mirror that sits above the mantel in the living room. The eclectic mix of 19th-century pieces with contemporary black-and-white photography by Sebastião Salgado, 1920s Spanish-style lighting and art-deco lamps from the ’40s is triumphantly mastered by Bullard. For the family kitchen, the designer took inspiration from Tuscany and the south of France, using reclaimed antique French terracotta tiles on the floor and building in stainless-steel cabinets, cookers and a fridge. An oversized Salgado photograph of an Indian railway station, believed to be the inspiration behind

the final scene in Slum Dog Millionaire, creates a visual drama and a sense of intimacy in what could have been an otherwise utilitarian space. Bullard’s own range of fabrics is used throughout the house to cover sofas, beds and outdoor furniture, along with heavy, textured linens from textile company Schumacher. They complement pieces collected from homewares shops such as ABC Carpet & Home in New York and Caravane in Paris. Outside, cypress trees line the pool area for privacy and a Jaipur sofa in teak from Bullard’s home collection beckons languid lounging – as one would expect Hollywood stars to do frequently in their homes high on the hill. But, given the ferocity of maintaining a busy filming schedule for one of TV’s most popular characters, and balancing work with a young child, you do have to wonder if this lounge is more of a tease than a temptation. Either way, this house certainly fills the brief of creating a regal yet relaxed respite from the hectic streets and buzz below. It appears Bullard is more than just a million-dollar decorator, he is master of mixing eclectic earthy charms with a subtle grandeur and creating a relaxed and inviting home to retreat to. \ SIAN MacpherSoN smacpherson@theweeklyreview.com.au get the look » P12 10 The weekly review \ SEPTEMBER 25, 2013

Motoring \ rod easdown finds a new way of getting a car, one piece at a time

T

(SUPPLIED)

here’s a new way to buy cars. Dodge in America has stolen an idea from the wedding industry. You know about wedding registries, where the happy couple nominates a wish list at a department store and their fortunate guests get to buy them something from it? Would you believe the Dodge Dart Registry? If you want a new Dodge Dart (it’s about the size of a Mazda 3) but don’t have the wherewithal, you simply establish an on-line registry and invite anyone you can think of to buy a part of it on your behalf. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Cheapskates will go for a tier-one gift such as a handbrake lever or a warning lamp, but your true friends will be right up there with a tier-four gift and get you an airbag or two, or maybe the entire engine. Smart would-be car owners set up their registry when several gift-receiving opportunities are imminent, such as birthdays, Christmas, graduation or whatever. And they can thank their benefactors with just a click or two. Eileen Wunderlich from Dodge in the US says this is the first time a car company has created a crowd-funding platform to encourage people to buy a new car. Since the idea was launched in January, nearly 7000 people have set up registries, many of them students moving out of home for the first time. However, the number of cars that have been fully funded in the first six months of the plan

is rather more modest. That would be two. registry thus becomes a secretly educational But the longer Wunderlich speaks to me, the tool. And we’ve learnt that social media can be more I get the impression that the whole used to make the process of buying a car exercise is about creating awareness of more approachable to more people. A the car through social media rather fund-raising goal can be anything “true than scoring sales. “The number one from a down payment to the full friends will objective of the registry is to build price of the car.” be there with awareness of the Dart,” she admits. The nice thing about it for Dodge an airbag” “It has been created so people can is that, once registries are established engage with the brand and view it as and people start contributing, digitally innovative. Those who sign up registry owners feel a growing moral for a registry, and those who sponsor parts, commitment to the purchase. While there’s are learning about the car’s features.

HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE TO LIPOSUCTION The VacuShape operates just like a normal treadmill, except that the walker is covered by a chamber from the waist down. The chamber creates a vacuum system which increases the blood circulation in the lower part of the body and also increases in temperature as the workout continues, permitting concentrated fat burning to take place in precisely the cellulite and fat prone areas of the hips, thighs and buttocks. Clinical studies have shown a 30 minute session in the VacuShape can burn over 1000 calories.

Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for most of the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs, a visiting specialist at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. “My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery from 1963! He has now passed away but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,” Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. “One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision due to congenital cataracts even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. “Seeing my patients’ bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is definitely the best part of my job.” No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.
