Fighting for the human rights of refugees is a lifelong passion. This year will be the fourth time I have run the half-marathon. In the past two years I have raised more than $45,000 running the Melbourne Marathon. Some years I train, but this year I am coming off the back of flu and sickness, so I’m pretty much running cold. In the past I have run in a wedding dress and a pink tutu. Both were quite an experience. This year we have 265 people running on the team and we are trying to raise $250,000 – we’ve raised more than $76,000 so far. We don’t just run for money – we are running for a fair go for asylum seekers. At the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre we help about 1300 refugees every week. We have 35 staff, 800 volunteers and no funding from the federal government. We provide hot meals, food packages and medical assistance to families with no access to Medicare, and help people find work and access education. The Melbourne Marathon is our one big fund-raising event for the year. It’s a really simple idea: get fit, run, do good. If I could personally raise $25,000, I’m willing to bring the wedding dress back – bouquet and all. It’s so exhilarating to push beyond that pain barrier for something you believe is important.

Sydney Road safety in spotlight TEAGAN GLENANE

A SAFETY audit of Sydney Road is slated to come before Moreland City council tonight, with more CCTV and better lighting around the strip to be considered. It follows the emotional response to the death of Jill Meagher, a 29-yearold Irish national, who went missing from Sydney Road last month. Coburg man Adrian Ernest Bayley, 41, is set to face the Melbourne Magistrates Court in January charged with her rape and murder. Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu said up to $3 million in grants would be made available to local governments that wished to install CCTV cameras. He said he had asked for advice on the adequacy of CCTV coverage across Melbourne’s CBD and inner suburbs, and for CCTV black spots to be identified. CCTV footage of Ms Meagher was released as part of the investigation into her disappearance. Moreland mayor John Kavanagh said he welcomed the state government’s commitment to CCTV funding. “Over the coming weeks and months we will work closely with Victoria Police and the community to explore options to improve community safety,’’ he said. The council is expected to discuss the Sydney Road safety audit at the last council meeting before elections. Moreland councillor Lambros Tapinos said he favoured an audit of lighting around Sydney Road, an investigation into the use of CCTV and a survey into how pedestrians moved to and from the main strip. “I think we should at least investigate CCTV,” he said.

The death of Jill Meagher has fuelled concern about safety in areas all over Melbourne ation co-ordinator Claire Perry said she did not believe the road was more dangerous than similar Melbourne strips, but said lighting could be improved. She said the association had long asked for better lighting – especially on the side streets connecting Sydney Road to Upfield line railway stations. “It is incredibly dark around those railway stations,” she said. Moreland councillor Jo Connellan said she thought it was too soon after Ms Meagher’s death to discuss the safety issue and she believed it was a matter for the new council. A funeral service was held for Ms Meagher at Fawkner Cemetery on Friday, and her ashes were taken to Perth.

Review for Yarra nightspots SAFETY measures at Yarra nightspots will be reviewed in the wake of Brunswick resident Jill Meagher’s death last month. Socialist councillor Anthony Main successfully called last Tuesday night for an investigation into how safety could be improved across Brunswick, Smith and Swan streets. The council will consider whether to employ safety officers to be stationed at taxi ranks to ensure revellers get into taxis safely and to assist anyone who feels unsafe. The staff

would be paid for by higher differential rates on late night traders. Cr Main said he deliberately did not nominate CCTV as an option because he believed it did not prevent crime. ‘‘I don’t want a situation where we have incidents of violence against women and all we have is CCTV to catch the perpetrators,’’ he said. ‘‘I want a situation where we’re taking preventative measures and we send a message that violence is not acceptable.’’ – Alana Schetzer

Residents appeal on plaza BY ALANA SCHETZER a.schetzer@mmpgroup.com.au TWO Richmond residents have taken Coles to VCAT over its successful planning application to redevelop Richmond Plaza into a residential and retail mecca. Irene Tran and Con Mydaras have filed an appeal under section 82 of the Planning and Environment Act. A hearing date has yet to be set. The neighbours, who live on Church Street, claimed they would be unable to use their garages because of the size of the proposed development. Yarra City council approved the development after negotiating with Coles to cut three storeys from the original 12-storey plan, which also included a four-storey residential building with 333 units, plus a supermarket, bottle shop, 420-seat restaurant, cafes, stores, childcare centre, gym and yoga studio, and offices. The council said the $250 million development would revitalise the area while protecting neighbourhood character. Coles Property Group spokeswoman Alecia Batten said the company was reviewing the council’s decision and ‘‘considering’’ its next steps. Bridge Road Traders Association president Herschel Landes said traders had embraced the development. ‘‘It means more jobs and more customers will come to Bridge Road,’’ he said.

Women’s health call Women’s Health In the North is calling on candidates in this month’s local government election to make preelection commitments on women’s health and wellbeing. WHIN chief executive Helen Riseborough has written a letter to candidates in Darebin, Moreland, and Yarra seeking their commitment to The Safe, Well and Connected: Victorian Local Government Action Plan for Women’s Health 2012–2016. Ms Riseborough said local governments played a big role in promoting women’s health.

Police target Yarra crime Socialist Stephen Jolly

Mayor Geoff Barbour

Geoff Barbour said he was disappointed by the deal but rejected suggestions it would affect his party’s chance of success later this month. ‘‘I was a bit surprised by the deal as they seem not to be on good terms with each other in council,’’ he said. ‘‘However, we will be out there campaigning solidly.’’ He expects at least one ALP candidate will be elected to each of the three wards.

The Greens and ALP have agreed since 2008 to occupy the mayor’s position and pass it on to the other party. The current council is made up of three Greens, two ALP, two Socialists and two independents. Twenty one candidates have nominated, with Josh Funder the only incumbent not seeking another term. Yarra residents and ratepayers will vote in person on October 27.

More than 8300 cars were checked as part of a two-week police operation aimed at drug crime and associated criminal activity across Yarra last month. Seven people were charged with possessing a drug of dependence as part of Operation Vapour. Three people were charged with burglary, one person for theft of a motor vehicle and another person for theft. Richmond Police Senior Sergeant Ciaran Boyle said the operation was successful. ‘‘The message is simple and the message is clear – if you come into

INBRIEF

Greens, Socialists cut a deal YARRA Greens and Socialists have entered into a ‘‘marriage of convenience’’ by choosing to preference each other over the ALP in this month’s election. The two parties have been involved in a series of long-running disputes this term, especially over planning and environment issues. Greens candidate and incumbent councillor Amanda Stone said although she found Socialists Stephen Jolly and Anthony Main’s behaviour at some council meetings ‘‘appalling’’, politically they were a better match than the ALP. ‘‘I’ve always been ambivalent about the Socialists but their policies are more aligned to ours,’’ she said. ‘‘This isn’t about personalities.’’ Cr Stephen Jolly urged Cr Stone to ‘‘stick to the policies and leave out personal attacks’’. The Socialists give preference to the most left policies, he said, so they picked the Greens above the ALP. Yarra mayor and ALP candidate

THE would-be lord mayoral team of Gary Singer and John So jnr wants to revamp the Queen Victoria Market, transforming it into a “Federation Square of the north”. They say the market area should be a major community precinct, envisioning a business and cultural centre open every day and evening. Mr Singer announced the plan as part of his election campaign last week, with Mr So, son of former Melbourne lord mayor John So. Mr Singer said the market was a world-wide tourist attraction and it was important to maintain its integrity. “Federation Square is the lounge room of Melbourne, this could be the kitchen,” Mr Singer said. “You need to activate this area – this is a great part of our city.” Mr So said the market was close to Flagstaff Gardens and the city’s university and hospital precinct and that the space could be better utilised to

make the most of its fantastic location. If elected, the team said it would call for ideas on how the market could be transformed and begin discussions with community, state government and private sector representatives on the project. Mr Singer said he was aware of the thousands of bodies buried under the market – the land was used for Melbourne’s first cemetery – and said any work would have to be done with appropriate care and respect. Second generation Queen Victoria Market trader Rocco Tripodi, who sells fruit, vegetables and juices, said it was important that change did not come at the cost of what made the market a unique and beloved Melbourne attraction. Some changes, such as improving parking and shelter from the elements, needed to be looked at, “but don’t tamper with it too much”, he said. “Whoever is throwing money at the place really needs to listen to the people of Melbourne and the traders,” Mr Tripodi said.

BRIAN Shanahan’s bid to become Melbourne lord mayor has been bolstered by preference deals, but the current councillor will need to secure a high primary vote if his campaign is to benefit. Cr Shanahan’s own preference flow has drawn criticism, after his team preferenced current Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and his running mates above the Greens. Cr Shanahan secured the second preferences of councillors Doyle, David Nolte and the Gary Singer and John So jnr team. The Doyle team ticket placed Cr Shanahan’s running mate for a council seat, Kevin Chamberlin, at eighth, and current Greens councillor Cathy Oke at 40, the last place. Greens council candidate Rohan Leppert said the ShanahanChamberlin preference allocation was “very disappointing”. He said Mr Chamberlin had been publicly critical of Cr Doyle. – Chris Hingston

METROPOLIS

Fifty shades of blue

Even a broken clock is right twice a day, just not when MTW took this shot at 1.30pm. The Collingwood town hall clock on Hoddle Street has a long history of telling the time, but because of an interrupted power supply it’s right for only two minutes a day. But last week was an extreme example of time stopping when the Citylink tunnels were closed to traffic – just think of the fuming motorists in the roughly 86,000 cars a day heading north and south for whom time had actually stopped. Phew, we thought Yarra City Council was predicting apocalypse and had turned their timepiece into the Doomsday Clock. Wake us when it’s two minutes to midnight.

Doomsday looms in Collingwood

Making a meal of it The Main Course, a Dudley Street brothel that describes its staff as ‘‘a smorgasbord of lovely ladies’’, is facing a problem other than referring to its staff as food. Currently closed while the building undergoes a renovation, its sign out the front to its ‘‘valid’’ clients is a bit of a hoot. Surely they mean ‘‘valued’’?

Anarchist Dr Joe Toscano, pictured with Robbie Thorpe, wants to bring a splash of colour to the lord mayoral race. Launching his campaign last week, the serial campaigner said the current race was “50 shades of blue” – with multiple “Liberal Party luminaries” nominating. He said the scene had been set for one of the most boring, inane and pro-business Melbourne council elections. Some of his election promises include a vow to rebrand City Square to Human Rights Square in honour of the Occupy Melbourne movement, and a push to double rates on properties worth more than $10 million to raise money for services for the homeless. His platform for the Melbourne state byelection was to “set a cat amongst the pigeons”. MTW knows there is nothing like an animal metaphor to enliven public debate.

Festa turns up the heat Angela Villella is a good fit for the first Carlton Italian Festa. Ms Villella is a founder of Mangia! Mangia! a group that works to record and promote traditional Italian cooking styles. Her goal is shared by the Carlton Italian Festa organisers, who also want to celebrate the neighbourhood’s Italian culture. Festa MC James Liotta said the aim was to create an event to rival the once great Lygon Street festival. He hoped the new event would win over traders and the community. “Carlton has lost a bit of its Italian culture over the years; I think this could be something that brings a lot of that culture back.” Ms Villella will host cooking demonstrations, one of many events planned for the October 14 festa at Piazza Italia, at the corner of Lygon Street and Argyle Place.

Injecting room support praised BY ALANA SCHETZER YARRA City council has applauded support for the introduction of a safe injection facility trial in the state. Mayor Geoff Barbour said the move by the Victorian branch of the Australian Medical Association to take a position on the subject for the first time last week strengthened council’s argument for a trial. ‘‘My view is that [the AMA] is a very credible body in the area of health, and given that they have given due consideration to this matter, their opinion should carry some weight,’’ he said. AMA Victoria president Stephen Parnis said Sydney’s safe injecting facility in Kings Cross, which has operated for 10 years without a fatal overdose, had reduced overdoses, ambulance call-outs and hospital admissions.

Access changes would be made to land on the east side of the southern end of Shakespeare Place (Certificate of Title Volume 4011 Folio 068, shown as Lot 1 in Title Plan 255668). This is shown as Land A on the map at right. Land use between the southern sections of Royal Place and Shakespeare Place (Certificate of Title Volume 6547 Folio 224, shown as Lot 1 in Title Plan 374862) would also be changed. This is shown as Land B on the map at right. Under the proposal, these parcels of land would no longer be used for parking.

Council is proposing to instead use them for car park access, as well as pedestrian access, bicycle parking and landscaping as part of general improvements around the station precinct.

EAST RICHMOND STATION PRECINCT

These changes would involve the placement of permanent barriers at the southernmost 4.5 metre sections of Royal Place and Shakespeare Place.

A community gallery that was forced to close in Northcote this year has found a new home in Brunswick East. Synergy Gallery will open at the Red Rattler Train at CERES environment park on October 20. The agreement ends a 14-month fight to save the gallery, which closed at the end of June after its landlord, Uniting Church, refused to extend its lease. Gallery coordinator Katie Roberts, pictured at the Northcote premises with volunteer Leigh Woodburgess, said she tried to find a space in Northcote but happily accepted the offer to move to Brunswick East. ‘‘We’re disappointed to be leaving Northcote but we’re happy to have a new home and to be part of CERES,’’ she said. There will be lots of people and activities going on there.’’

‘‘The evidence is quite clear – safe injecting rooms can save lives and minimise the harm to the community caused by illicit drugs,’’ Dr Parnis said. The council voted in May last year to support the introduction of a safe injecting trial. The state government rejected the AMA’s calls last week, maintaining a long term opposition to a facility. Yarra Drug and Health Forum executive officer Greg Denham said he would continue to raise the issue with the government. ‘‘It’s a public health issue and there are a broad range of benefits of a trial. We need to keep stating our case,’’ he said. Michael Moore, spokesman for Mental Health Minister Mary Wooldridge, said the government was focused on its harm-reduction priorities, including pharmacotherapy services and needle exchange programs.

In August 2012, Yarra City Council (Council) adopted detailed designs for the East Richmond Station Precinct after seeking feedback from the community.

Yorkshire move brewing

BY CHRIS HINGSTON

THE former Yorkshire Brewery in Collingwood could be the subject of a VCAT appeal following Yarra City council’s rejection of an application to build a 17-storey residential centre. The council voted 5-4 against the plan last week on the grounds it was an overdevelopment of the site and it would dominate the surrounding streetscape. Neighbours’ privacy and neighbourhood character were also cited as part of the refusal. Council officers recommended granting a permit with a host of conditions. The decision ends a nearly year-long application process but councillors believe the case will end up going to VCAT. Mayor Geoff Barbour, who supported the application, said the applicant was ‘‘very committed’’ to the proposal and believed it would likely ‘‘take it to the next step’’. SMA Projects applied to create a multi-building development, including

three-day hearing pitted the Byards against a team of planning experts. Mr Byard said his wife had spent the months leading up to the hearing researching planning laws and poring over previous VCAT decisions. Mr Byard said they were “relieved” by the tribunal’s findings. “Our gut feeling that it was too big was vindicated at VCAT,” he said. “We now plan to relax, sit in the backyard and invite the neighbours that supported us over to celebrate.”

BASKING in backyard sunshine may not seem like an elaborate way to celebrate, but that is exactly what Theo and Jacqui Byard did after their win at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The Kensington couple successfully fought to overturn a City of Melbourne decision allowing a threestorey, seven-dwelling development next door to their house in Bayswater Road. The city had asked for one dwelling to be removed from the development, but the Byards were worried the building would cast their backyard in shadow for much of the day and took the matter to VCAT. The couple had to wait more than seven months for the hearing and nine months for the outcome – which rejected the City of Melbourne decision and found the building to be an overdevelopment of the site.

Darebin fast food outlets get reprieve on rates rise FAST food outlets across Darebin have escaped being slugged with higher rates – for now – after Darebin council put its proposal on ice to await a state government review on differential rates. The council proposed to charge higher rates to fast food outlets, including McDonalds and KFC, as a way of curbing obesity-related health problems in the area. It said the extra money, about $139,000 a year, would be used for community health education and programs. The municipality is home to 96 fast food premises, 16 of which are chain outlets. The idea has gained support from some members of the health professions, but fast food chains said it would be unfair. The state government responded by drawing up a bill aiming to limit all councils’ rights to charge differential rates, which it called ‘‘social engineering’’. Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell said more than half of Victoria’s councils charged differential rates which had created a ‘‘complex web’’. The proposed amendment to the Local

Government Act has passed the lower house and is set to be voted on in the upper house this week.

The council voted last week to seek permission from Ms Powell to retain its differential rate for pokie machine operators or receive compensation should the differential rates be removed.

COVERSTORY

The mean streets of Melbourne’s inner-north come to life in the small-screen adaptation of Peter Temple’s legendary Jack Irish novels. By Stephen A Russell

on the auded crime writer Peter Temple, 66, best known for his Jack Irish novels set in the underworld of Melbourne, has never been a fan of editors. An ex- journalist, he went on to teach aspiring cadets before setting himself to writing novels at the tender age of 50. “I don’t get edited much at all. I never have,” he reveals. “I can’t bear it, for a start. I usually make a big fuss and act up. After a while they say, ‘All right, all right, leave it in’. Of course, I’m always very grateful when they save me from my own stupidity.” Unleashing a deep-seated belly chuckle, there’s no doubting the truth to his observations, but there’s a slab of hearty humour included. He’s got the chops to carry it off, too. With nine novels to his name, Temple has scored no fewer than five Ned Kelly Awards, Australia’s pre-eminent crimewriting gong. He also became the first Australian to win the Duncan Lawrie Dagger (formerly known as Gold Dagger), the world’s richest crime fiction prize, from the UK Crime Writers’ Association in 2007. When he won the prestigious Miles Franklin Award for the non-Jack Irish book Truth in 2010, however, it was a case of a crime fiction novelist playing in the literary greats’ sandpit that ruffled a few feathers. “I’ve never been much for thinking about genre – if you like a book, you like it,” Temple says. “I’m concerned with the quality of the writing. You’d hate to think something would be disqualified because it obeyed some genre conventions.” It wasn’t just the snobs who were shocked; some of his cohorts said he shouldn’t want to be a part of that world. “It was a brave thing for the judges to do, and in a way it made my life a lot more difficult because they are hard acts to follow, those things,” he says. “I’ve been admitted to a club that should never have allowed me through the door.” After many years of near-misses, the first two of the four Jack Irish novels will be brought to life by the ABC when Bad Debts and Black Tide go to air as telemovies over two consecutive Sundays from this weekend. Starring Guy Pearce as the criminal lawyer-turnedprivate investigator and debt collector, the telemovies are grounded recognisably in Melbourne’s inner north, where Temple used to live, with the graffiti-strewn walls of Fitzroy and Collingwood, bluestone cobbled laneways and trams trundling along Brunswick Street forming the backdrop. Carving his own unmistakably Melbourne noir, Temple fashions a world that captures the reader with a Fitzroy mired in murder, drug deals and duplicity. It was vitally important for Temple that Melbourne come alive on the page. He says that back when he started the Jack Irish yarns, the city wasn’t quite as temperate as it’s become. “It was

gloomy, with incredibly wet, very cold winters only enlivened by football.” Born in South Africa in 1946, Temple moved to Australia with his wife in 1980, spending his adult years kicking around the same stomping grounds as Jack. “I worked just off Brunswick Street and saw it change from being just a couple of cafes, a gunsmith and a few central European clubs where people played snooker and cards, to what it is now. That’s where I knew best when I started writing.” Jack seldom ventures out of this patch. “He has been known to cross the Yarra, to see his sister, but it’s always unwillingly, and he does venture into the countryside, usually on horse matters, but it’s always with a certain disdain,” Temple says. Of course, the linchpin of any good crime novel is the local pub, and in Jack’s world it’s the Prince of Prussia. Locating a real watering hole to play the part in the series wasn’t easy. “They had tremendous difficulty finding one that didn’t want to charge you so much you had to mortgage a house for a day’s rental, so they built one,” Temples chuckles. “It’s terrific, full of old Fitzroy Football Club memorabilia. It looks good, and the old codgers in it look very good, too.” October 10, 2012

Temple praises the efforts of director Jeffrey Walker (Rake, Angry Boys), saying that the ABC series’ production values look bigger than TV. He also commends writer Andrew Knight (Rake, SeaChange) who deftly updated the source material. “Andrew asked me to look at stuff in the beginning and I immediately acted up, then common sense prevailed. I said, ‘Just go and don’t show it to me’,” Temple says. Initially doubtful, Temple’s impressed by Pearce’s performance. “I was taken aback when Guy was first suggested,” he says. “I couldn’t see him as Jack at all, although I’ve never really seen Jack. I’ve always tried not to. I don’t like seeing my characters, but five minutes into the first one he was Jack, as far as I’m concerned. He’s a terrific actor with a real brooding presence.” Temple hopes the uniformly strong cast, including Don Hany, Shane Jacobson, Marta Dusseldorp and Diana Glenn, can be reassembled for the next two instalments, though sadly, multi-award-winning German actor Vadim Glowna, who plays cabinetmaker Charlie Taub, passed away early this year. “He’s terrific and loved being in them, but unfortunately he’s gone,” he says. “Ideally one would film them all in one go. There are a couple of other people, dare I say it, they’re not the

youngest cast. I want these boys looked after.” He toyed with writing his own screenplay a few years back, but soon abandoned ship. It’s not an easy job, with complex plots and more than 32 recurring characters to juggle. “Somebody counted them,” he laughs, genuinely amazed at the level of dedication exhibited by his fans. Of course, this fervour has a downside. “You’re stuck with 32 individual biographies and you have to update them. When I got rid of Jack’s girlfriend in the second book, my publisher said, ‘You’re mad, where’s Linda? I’m not reading any further unless she’s coming back’.’’ Growing up in South Africa, Temple enjoyed the hard-boiled crime fiction of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Ross Macdonald but says he never aimed to mimic them. “One would be silly to pretend you weren’t influenced, but I didn’t want to write that sort of thing,” he says. “They were very much about loners walking down mean streets by themselves, whereas the Jack Irish books are big ensemble pieces.” He’s always given Jack a breather in between appearances, like his sixth novel, In The Evil Day, which kicks off in Johannesburg and races through London, Hamburg and the Welsh hills, or 1998’s An Iron Rose, featuring blacksmith Mac Faraday. “I could never write two in a row – I’ve always interspersed them with stand-alones, which is important,” he says. “It keeps you fresh.” Temple continues his love affair with Melbourne from afar, having decamped to Ballarat over two decades ago. “We had no intention of staying, but then our boy got settled at school,” he says. “It’s one of those stories – we thought, ‘We’ll stay another year’. Years pass, he’s grown up and doesn’t even live in Australia, and we’re still here.” Temple is quite happy writing in his big old house, with a library so full he can’t even find his own novels, and it’s close enough to Melbourne to visit whenever he likes. “I’ve been able to watch Melbourne from a distance; which is quite good, because you get a bit of perspective on it,” he says. He’s working on a third book in the non-Jack sequence that kicked off with The Broken Shore – which in 2007 won the Duncan Lawrie Dagger, and was followed by Truth, the latter to be adapted for the silver screen by Tropfest founder and Swimfan director John Polson, though the juices aren’t quite flowing yet. “That’s the theory, but the practice is quite different,” Temple admits. “I’m also supposed to be writing the fifth Jack Irish. It’s fairly well advanced, but it’s been made difficult by the existence of these films. I’ve been given a picture of Jack that now lurks in my mind. How do I write a book now that doesn’t conflict?” And if this is Jack’s final outing, will he make it through in one piece or will there be a gruesome ending? “I would never do that, because people would kill me,” he says. “People like Jack. I think he’s immortal.” Temple sees no need to tie everything up in a pretty little bow, either, so completists may be left baying for more. “Life is messy. You reach a point where something seems to have ended for the moment, just leave it there. It can come back, it can change. Nothing is ever finished. Nothing.” When Temple is back in town, he loves to wander around the old haunts he’s so familiar with, whether that’s Brunswick Street or grabbing a coffee and a bite to eat at Pellegrini’s. Basically he sticks to Jack’s beat, so how much of him is there in his hero? “None at all,” he retorts, without a flicker of hesitation. “Jack’s a person of character. I have no character.” ■ October 10, 2012 MELBOURNE TIMES WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

PROFILE

The secret history Abbotsford Convent inspires Maureen McCarthy’s latest novel. By Fran Cusworth

bbotsford Convent these days is a hub for artists and writers such as Maureen McCarthy. But it was once a home for nuns, fallen women, orphans and illegitimate children such as McCarthy’s own mother, who grew up within the historic walls, forced to live apart from her mother. ‘‘That’s what happened to women if they didn’t toe the line,’’ says McCarthy, sitting in the grassy convent courtyard beneath the gaze of the windows that were once the nuns’ bedrooms. Her novel, The Convent, winds the threads of her family history into a story spanning four generations of women involved with the 144-year-old building in Melbourne’s inner east. Through flashbacks between the generations, the book captures the breathtaking speed of change in a society which, less than a century ago, sanctioned a father’s right to forcibly take an illegitimate child away from her mother. It looks at the lives of Sadie, Ellen, Cecilia and modern-day great-granddaughter Peach, who works in a cafe at the Convent and who

questionable morals. I’ve always been fascinated by it.’’ McCarthy is a recent addition to the convent’s community, saying she chose to take a studio there because she needed a break from the solitude of writing but also so she could write the book within the same walls that her characters, and her mother, had walked. She interviewed many former residents of the convent, both nuns and the former ‘‘laundry girls’’, women who weren’t nuns but who spent long days and years in hard labour, prayer and silence. Many of these elderly women live in houses near the convent today. ‘‘That part of history is worth remembering – not just the events but how people thought. And how that thinking pervaded their lives,’’ McCarthy says. ‘‘It’s taken me a long time to approach something like this because I’m not history-trained so I had to sort of come in cold. But it felt really great on a deep level – like something I really had to do.’’ ■ The Convent is $22.95 from Allen & Unwin.

belatedly learns about her ancestry as she struggles with her attraction to the boy she thought she’d left behind. McCarthy, the ninth of 10 children in an Irish-Australian farming family, says her mother, Ellen, lied to her large and curious brood, telling them her mother died in childbirth rather than the fact that she was forbidden to see her daughter. Ellen would never answer questions about why she lived at the convent rather than with her father, who came to visit her on weekends. ‘‘It’s hard for people to admit they had a mother or a father who couldn’t care for them, for one reason or another. That is such a hurt for a child,’’ says McCarthy, best known as the author of Queen Kat, Carmel and St Jude Get A Life, which was made into an ABC mini-series. ‘‘She was a terrific woman, my mother, cheery and bright and full of fun most of her life. McCarthy says. “But she couldn’t think about these things – the shame of being illegitimate or having a mother with

Belle Epocha

A stately Carlton terrace gets a fine dining makeover

Epocha

MARY-JANE DAFFY DISHING IT UP ven from the outside, Epocha looks exciting. A stately Victorian terrace with an enviable view over Carlton Gardens has been given a groovy lift with wooden slat furniture, flourishes of olive green and a striking pentagon sign. I can envisage summer wedding parties already. Inside, this gorgeous old home, built in 1884 during Melbourne’s boom period, feels really special. It’s been gutted and given a taverna-cum-fine diner feel with thatched chairs, rustic tables, vibrant tiles and incredible black steel multi-armed lighting that’s truly impressive. But what’s been retained is equally important – the original unpolished floorboards, fireplaces, arched hallways and terrifically towering ceilings. Further details add whimsy. Old-world cutlery, fancy floral plates and a wooden dessert trolley that trundles out rows of meringuecapped lime pies and triple-layered chocolate slices with honeycomb crunch (both $12). The attention to detail just keeps coming; filtered still water, house-churned butter, rye bread served warm in a knotted bag, and encyclopaedic explanations on food and wine quandaries.

It’s no surprises then that the duo behind Epocha is hospitality dynamites Angie Giannakodakis (pictured above left, and previously of Press Club and Hellenic Republic) and Guy Holder (above right, ex Momo, Rockpool). Giannakodakis’s wine sensibility is evident on the largely European list. Greek wines butt up against Spanish and Italian varietals and even the wine astute may get tripped up. The list is brief and wonderfully fresh, with offerings from little known vineyards and boutique labels. Heading up the pots and pans in the kitchen is head chef Mick Bolam (ex-Sanctuary, Hunter Valley). The menu is largely rustic European fare with clever twists perfect for sharing. The snack section really is bite sized. Fried duck tongues ($6) and mini-crumpets with honeycomb ($7.50) are exciting alongside more classic duck liver pate ($9) and spiced chickpeas ($4).

A pot of ajvar ($5) is full throttle flavour. But then I love capsicum. The waiter tells me Bolam’s version of this capsicum dip is the purest form – roasted then pureed capsicum. Two finger length salt cod croquettes ($7) aren’t so successful. The golden exterior has a lovely crunch but yielded to a chewy dense centre that just wasn’t bright enough with cod. Stealing my heart, however, was a simple skate dish ($16) under the small shares section. The thick squares of salty, soft skate dancing a jig beneath lemon, capers and parsley, the dish grounded by a creamy fava bean puree. Lamb Kalamaki ($18) is Athenians’ version of souvlaki; cubed and skewered marinated lamb that’s chargrilled to finish. Epocha follows a very traditional line with the lamb skewers but ups the ante with chunks of gorgonzola and sweet, soft and halved baked pear. Large shares are the main affair, but don’t expect huge portions, apart from the 900gram cote de boeuf ($78). Two fat stumpy pork and sage faggots ($25) proved that small portions can still pack punch. Course in texture, the house-made sausages were unapologetically bold and succulent. The accompanying bubble and squeak proved a collision of roasted bacon, peas, potato and carrots that worked harmoniously alongside such farm-style goodness. It’s difficult not to finish with a dive head long into the dessert wine and liquor list. Old-world charm, staff and serious atmosphere makes you want to linger here long into the night. ■ Got a favourite spot you’d like to share?

★★★★ A MATTER OF TASTE: SERVING UP PAUL LIEBRANDT Madman Not another DVD featuring a famous chef, I hear you yawn. Not quite. A Matter of Taste follows the rise, rise and fall of New York-based chef Paul Liebrandt, a wonder kid who at 24 became the youngest chef to be awarded three stars by The New York Times. Born in London and trained under the likes of Marco Pierre White, Liebrandt was already stamping his name on the haute cuisine scene by 2000. Then the GFC hit and Liebrandt found his skills and lofty ambitions suffocated by America’s thirst for comfort food. Filmed documentary-style over a decade, A Matter of Taste is as much a snapshot of New York conceding to a global crisis as it is the journey of a brilliant chef. There are lessons here, too – of not yielding to second best and always believing in your ability. Because the results can be surprising. —Mary-Jane Daffy

Highs and lows This Emily Bronte adaptation quickly loses the plot ★★ WUTHERING HEIGHTS (MA 15+) Where: On general release When: October 11 Review: Mary-Jane Daffy

here is so much to dissect in Emily Bronte’s classic novel Wuthering Heights that a big screen adaptation is always a challenging task. Oscar-winning director Andrea Arnold (Wasp, Red Road, Fish Tank) seems the perfect choice to tackle this haunting, dark and twisted tale but the result misses the mark. Arnold focuses on the romance and tragedy of Cathy and Heathcliff, played by unknown actors Shannon Beere and Solomon Glave respectively. From the moment Mr Earnshaw

T

rescues the young Heathcliff from the streets and delivers him into his ‘‘good’’ Christian family, the harsh weather conditions and sweeping landscapes convey the brutal sense of loneliness and isolation on the Yorkshire Moors. The stunning cinematography by Robbie Ryan is undoubtedly the strongest element of the film.What isn’t so successful is the decision to use 4:3 aspect ratio, shaky camerawork and very limited dialogue. The scenery demands a widescreen and the windswept landscapes and blustering wind noises can only hold your attention for so long. The film also gives far too much time to the early years of Cathy and Heathcliff and their time romping in the mud and around the harsh Yorkshire Moors.

By the time we meet the affluent adult Heathcliff – played by another unknown actor, James Howson, who incidentally looks nothing like Heathcliff as a child – it’s become all too difficult to connect with the characters. Cathy has retained little of her wild youthful nature and appears bitter and tortured, having married Edgar from the always sunny ‘‘big house’’ nearby. Heathcliff’s violent and tormented soul is especially difficult to sympathise with. After zeroing-in on the ill-fated romance, the adaptation was never going to have a joyful end but the final scenes defy the bounds of good taste. For audiences expecting a soft period piece with a fine Hollywood romance, this is not your film.

book ★★★★ THIRST

L.A. Larkin Pier 9 Known as one of the few female thriller authors in Australia, British-born L.A. Larkin has set her second novel, Thirst, in the harsh climate of Antarctica. Well researched, thanks to Larkin’s previous career as a climate-change consultant and a trip to the Antarctica on a former Russian oceanographic research vessel, this book is a page turner. Thirst is set a few years from now in a world that suffers from drought. Maverick Australian glaciologist Luke Searle and his Antarctic station team find themselves in the middle of a ruthless plan to harvest water, no matter the cost to human lives or the environment. It’s basically a story of polar survival as Luke is forced to fight to stay alive and stop a climatic catastrophe. While the end wraps up a little too neatly, this is a fast-paced novel with well-defined characters and exciting plot lines that make it hard to put down. It’s an exciting read with a clear environmental message, but Larkin is careful not to hit you over the head with it. — Joanne Sim

Absolutely fabulous tv

BY KATHRYN KERNOHAN

K, it’s confession time. Between you and me, dear readers, I don’t mind Brynne Edelsten. This revelation hit me during last year’s Brownlow coverage, when the wife of 69-yearold millionaire Geoffrey Edelsten showed up in yet another too-low-too-short outfit and strutted and posed for photographers on the red carpet with the confidence many of the footballers’ girlfriends didn’t possess. Of course, if you’re a fan of timeless, classy, elegant fashion, she looked rather ridiculous. But Brynne knew what had been said about her in the past – and probably what was being said about her on social media at that exact moment – and simply didn’t care. Edelsten is perfect fodder for a fly-on-thewall TV series, and the kind folk at Channel Seven have delivered with the suitably titled Brynne: My Bedazzled Life.

It’s easy to draw comparisons with Being Lara Bingle, the last program in which we were encouraged to watch a famous woman go about her day to day life. But there’s a big difference between the two. In Bingle’s program, we discovered that away from the limelight she’s a normal girl from the suburbs who stresses over her love life and what her grandmother thinks of her. By contrast, Edelsten’s life is, for want of a better term, truly bedazzled. In the first episode, she realises she has $250,000 worth of clothes lying around that she hasn’t so much as tried on. This week, Brynne embarks on her first speaking engagement, at her

husband’s book launch. Somewhat surprisingly, she has the crowd laughing along when she lists each page she is referenced on, and then ponders where she was for some of his career milestones, before concluding ‘‘that’s right, I wasn’t born yet’’. Elsewhere, her beloved pooch Juddy (yes, named after Chris Judd) goes to doggy training school, she rehearses for a play and she employs ex-Collingwood footballer Paul Licuria. My Bedazzled Life may not be the most credible TV program of all time, but it sure is entertaining. Seven, Thursday, 7.30pm.

A nation’s independence is celebrated in song, writes Hannah Warnaar

SONGS OF FREEDOM FOR BANGLADESH When: 5–7pm, October 13 Where: BMW Edge, Federation Square

hen the Music Festival of Bangladesh takes the stage, Melburnians will get a rare glimpse into the struggle for the nation’s independence. The festival’s theme, “Gaane Gaane Char Doshok” (“Four Decades of Music”) is a celebration of history as well as a showcase of Melbourne’s vibrant Bengali community. Music played an integral role in the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War. Spurred by the genocide of thousands of Bengalis by the Pakistani army, music helped mobilise a resistance movement that would eventually win an independent Bengali state. Muntasir Abedin, vice-president of Srotar

W

Ashor, the non-profit organisation behind the festival, experienced the war at age 16. “There were machine guns, bombing, all around us,” he says. “There was a liberation army that was created from students, kids, people in the villages. The catalysing force was the free radio, the patriotic songs.” This tumultuous period in the history of Bengal – which spans part of India as well as present-day Bangladesh – will be commemorated by the 20 artists in the festival. A shared cultural tradition helps unite Indian and Bangladeshi Bengalis today. “We sing the same music, the same poetry, the language is the same, authors are the same. Writers and poets, they span both the regions.” Of course, as Abedin emphasises, the Bengali musical tradition spans centuries. “It’s much, much older than the independence of either India or Bangladesh,” he says.

A little bit in love with you 8 BIT LOVE EP LAUNCH When: October 20 Where: Yah Yah’s, 99 Smith Street, Fitzroy Preview: Hannah Warnaar

veryone knows the clothes maketh the man. According to Melbourne electro-rock band 8 Bit Love, they can maketh the album, too. That’s right: In 3D, 8 Bit Love’s second EP, comes with 3D glasses to help decipher the cover art. But the gimmicks end there. Vito Lucarelli, Matt Darveniza and Simon Findlay have been playing together since they were 14. These days 8 Bit Love has a sizeable live following, two EPs and an upcoming national tour to its name. According to lead guitarist and singer Vito, the biggest challenge has been to convert the energy of their live sound on to the EP. “After the first EP we had so many people say, ‘It just doesn’t sound live, you guys should get into a room and record it live’,” says Vito. “I had to break it to them: that’s exactly what we did. Obviously it didn’t work!”

E

This time, the boys have opted for slicker production. That doesn’t mean the music has lost any of what Vito proudly calls its “trashy sound”. He cites the single Bad Taste as one of the slower, smoother songs on the album. It’s hard to understand why anyone would choose those words to describe four minutes of insistent drums and satisfyingly grimy, distorted guitar. But then, everything’s relative. “The other songs, they’re a lot more upbeat, a lot more synths and electronic stuff. I look at it as a pretty pumpin’ EP,” Vito says. The makers of Underbelly certainly thought so. They picked 3.32, another track from the album, to underscore a scene which aired recently. “We were kind of thinking it might be in a scene where they’re in a club and say, ‘the music here’s shit, let’s go’,” Vito says. Luckily for 8 Bit Love, Underbelly had other plans. “It was actually a really cool scene – they pick up these girls and go to this club, drinking, dancing, snorting cocaine. But a sex scene, a murder or a car chase, we would have been happy with any of those as well.”

The festival focuses on modern Bengal, from the patriotic songs which helped create a nation to the pop and rock music which captivates millions of Bengalis today. “We analyse the ’80s, lots of silver-screen songs,” Abedin says. “At that time things were not going too well for Bangladesh, so there are political songs – the suffering of people in general. Then in the ’90s there was an ascendance of pop music, and then after that, band music, too.” The development of Bengali music over the decades has united people from all walks of life. “The performers are doctors, engineers, accountants, some are in the academic field,” he says. “But they’re doing things with music because they love it.” Entry to the festival is free.

MOTORING

Small wonder Welcome to the little engine that could

ROD EASDOWN BEHIND THE WHEEL his is a terrific car – but before we get to why, a word in praise of small motors. Big motors may be more powerful but small ones are more responsive because their moving parts weigh less. And shorter conrods – connecting rods to the crankshaft – mean the smaller, lighter pistons don’t have as far to travel and are easier to move. This means that, all other things being equal, small motors spin up to peak revs faster and usually rev higher. So little cars with small motors are fun, but put one in a big, heavy car and it’s all too much and things get sluggish.

T

Thus big cars get big motors and small cars have small ones. At least until lately. There are some duds about, but given modern technology, larger cars are working beautifully with small motors – BMW’s 520d, for example. Even so, Volvo was being awfully brave putting a 1.6-litre in the S60, big turbocharger and all. The S60 weighs a tonne and a half and it certainly ain’t small. But with the help of an immensely clever gearbox, it works. More than that, it’s fun, mostly down to a little engine punching above its weight in power while retaining all that small engine responsiveness. It spins up fast and when you lift off it backs off fast. The S60T4 is not particularly quick or powerful but it loves to be driven, and once you get involved in the act of driving it feels terrific. If you like to anticipate and dial in what’s needed using the gearbox accordingly, it can be more fun than Christmas. You’ll get what I mean when you boot

What is it? BMW in Volvo clothing. What’s in it? A nicely responsive 132-kilowatt, turbocharged 1.6-litre with a six-speed electronic manual transmission. Is it thirsty?

win it out of a decent corner. The power is right there where it should be, no halfsecond delay while the motor and gearbox think things over and gather up. That the S60 handles better than any Volvo I can remember is the icing on the cake. The only downsides are suspension that verges on firm over second-class roads and noisy tyres. Hey, I could live with both. The T4 would pose a serious threat to BMW’s 3-series if only enough people knew about it. It’s quicker to 100 km/h, it’s got more room and it feels just as well made. And it’s 10 grand less than the BMW. ■

on initial sighting of the renovated and extended Edwardian and that sensibility intensifies throughout the interior. Finishes go for predominantly natural surfaces, thermal glazing renders the street-facing rooms private and the ducted heating is nonallergenic. Restumped, rewired, replumbed and fully insulated, this stalwart shouldn’t need fundamental attention for ages. A handy off-street parking area has been installed in the front garden area. Automatic gates increase ease of entry and exit. The notched weatherboard facade is painted beige and a half-width verandah has been refloored in jarrah. Up front, landscape design goes for low-maintenance effect with pebbled expanses bound by assorted native plants. Bedrooms one and two have fireplaces, and one of these has a walk-through wardrobe that opens to the dual-access main bathroom.

Big and tastefully tiled, this bathroom sports twin Rogerseller basins atop a Caesarstone vanity and an open shower in a tiled nook. A folding door reveals a neat European laundry. The front living room is large and airy and overlooks the introductory garden through a box bay window. The kitchen presents with knotty floorboards, honey timber cabinets and integrated stainless steel appliances. Meals and family zones can be defined by furniture placement. Built onto the rear of the residence, the studio, en suite and bedroom oozes inspirational appeal. A peaked, timber lined ceiling crowns the space and sliding glass doors give it direct deck access. A tree of life leadlight window adds a hippie touch. A curved wall of glass in the family area

addresses the deck. Canopied by a timber pergola hosting a 100-year-old grapevine, this deck segues into timber path that negotiates the greenery towards the Methven Park gate. Mondo grasses, massed nandina planting, blossom trees and bamboo mingle in the backyard. Cherry, apricot and apple trees fruit abundantly in season and a big rainwater tank services the lot. While kids may find play-friendly crannies, adults won’t have to spend much time enslaved to horticultural duties. Metres away, the colour of Lygon Street awaits. Casual dining options are plentiful, trams take minutes to get to the city and schools are within easy reach. Founded on then-meets-now ideology, this residence seems ideal for the new breed of Brunswick East settlers. ■

Cougars are back in town

Northcote Park had to lift its game to lift the cup. By Daniel Paproth f you’d told Northcote Park president Peter McNiece on June 23 that he would be holding the premiership cup at the end of the season, you would have received a strange look. Earlier that miserable, wintry day, the Cougars had suffered a 33-point loss at the hands of lowly Whittlesea in the Northern Football League. Northcote Park was eighth on the ladder after 10 rounds, with just three wins and a draw. “We had a meeting and I was saying we need to make sure we don’t get relegated,” McNiece says. “The mood was pretty solemn. Jason [Heatley, coach] asked all the players what they thought was going wrong.

I

“Everyone looked each other in the eye and we all just weren’t happy with the effort.” Heatley, in his first year in the role, told the playing group they faced a compulsory 7am training session to get serious before they fell too far behind. “It was a real turning point,” says McNiece. “Everyone was to be at training at quarter to seven the next morning for a seven o’clock start.’’ The response from the players reinvigorated the group. Some had a wedding in Albury to attend but made it back for the early training session. McNiece has been thrilled with the turnaround. “Here we are, 12 weeks later, winning the premiership,” he says.

Northcote Park won seven of its last eight games to finish fourth on the ladder. To make the grand final, it needed to win three finals on the trot. With Montmorency, Heidelberg and Bundoora finishing above them on the ladder, the Cougars went into the finals series as underdogs. But McNiece says the team’s late-season run struck fear into its opponents. “No other side wanted to meet us, to be honest,” he says. “Once we got over West Preston Lakeside in the elimination final, our belief grew and a few people who were following us thought we could go on to win the premiership.” And on September 22, that’s what happened. Coming up against NFL powerhouse Heidelberg – which was playing in its ninth consecutive grand final – Northcote Park led the game from start to finish. Having opened up a 31-point lead by halftime, the Cougars weren’t going to let slip the chance for their first division one flag since 2002 and by the final siren the margin was 45 points. “It was just fantastic,” says McNiece. “And also a bit of relief to know we’d won it. A lot of joy and emotion. “Our numbers had swelled as we gained momentum and we were playing an exciting brand of football.” McNiece credits much of the success to Heatley, whose influence, he says, was enormous. “At the start of the year we signed him up with a three-year plan to go deep into the finals and after just one we’ve already got a premiership.’’ ■

It was a rain-affected first round in Premier cricket, with only six of nine games achieving results, five of them under the Duckworth-Lewis method. This weekend will see another round of one-day games. North Melbourne suffered a heavy loss to Melbourne first up and takes on Hawthorn-Monash University next week, which recruited well over the off-season to try to atone for last season, when it won only one game. Carlton takes on Melbourne at the picturesque Albert Ground after Melbourne’s terrific first-up win, and Carlton will have its work cut out for it, considering former Australian test batsman Brad Hodge made just 10 runs in the opening round. Melbourne University will play Frankston Peninsula at its uni home ground, hoping for a better display after being bowled out for 145 by Geelong at the weekend, chasing a modest 194. Richmond won the toss and batted first against FootscrayEdgewater on Saturday but could manage only 8/162. Footscray was able to pass its total in the 46th over, only five wickets down. Richmond travels to Junction Oval to play St Kilda this weekend. Northcote was embarrassed by Carlton, bowled out for 110 in 48.1 overs. The Blues then took just 26.3 overs to chase down Northcote’s total. Northcote hosts Ringwood at Bill Lawry Oval on Saturday.
