dilemma of whether to choose a medical or writing career. By Jocelyn Biddle.

coincide.

In Two Minds, which was released on April

1st, follows the story of Martin, a Sydney-

based GP. Martin is a high achiever who

is popular amongst his friends, patients

and colleagues. However the death of his

mother triggers an episode of melancholic

depression, later followed by a manic

state, that sees him being lead astray by the

alluring, yet manipulative Bella.

The situation is completely out of

character for Martin, who is a loyal and

devoted husband to his long-standing

wife Sarah - who happens to be away on a

business trip at the time.

What unravels is a series of events that

sees Martin, Bella and Sarah struggling with

the fallout of his actions, representative of

the risk-taking behaviours often seen when

someone is in the grip of a psychotic episode.

The insights that Gordon has gleaned

from years of clinical practice listening to the

narrative of people with mental health issues

brings an insightful perspective to the novel.

What’s the story behind your favourite recipe?

A new initiative from FoodFaith, who manages the community garden in Hughes Park, aims to celebrate
cultural and faith diversity through gathering and sharing special recipes and their stories.

This month another two Lane Cove locals - Lincoln Gomes and Carol Selva Rajah - share a recipe
with TVO readers and describe what it means to them.

These recipes will also be included as part of FoodFaith’s initiative called Recipes: Re-discovering Our Roots
and will be posted on its website at www.foodfaith.com.au

The term 'Lane Cove and its environs' refers to the modern
Municipality of Lane Cove. However in the past, 'Lane Cove'
covered a much broader geographical area, including parts of
modern Hunters Hill, Woolwich, North Sydney, Chatswood and
suburbs north to Gordon.

Submissions that deal with a historical period in which these
areas constituted 'Lane Cove' will be accepted. For instance, the
first Lane Cove school, initiated by Governor Macquarie in 1816,
was in Gordon, as was the Lane Cove Post Office until 1879.

Another initiative of the LCHS is the Primary Schools History
Awards, which is a programme to encourage primary students in
the study of history.
