The edition kicks off with Gideon Haigh’s lead essay, ‘‘You must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on’ Falling In and Out of Love with The Office’.

In fiction, we’ve got short stories from Debra Adelaide and Jon Bauer; and for our interview, we speak with acclaimed author Andrew McGahan. Julia Tulloh ponders the chanteuse-noir appeal of Lana Del Rey, and Rebecca Harkins-Cross unravels the psychological complexities of David Cronenberg’s films.
