Remembering Art Pape: How one life can make a difference

How does one life make a difference?

Take Art Pape, my lifelong friend, who died of cancer last week, at 70. We met at Holy Blossom Temple religious school in a Grade 2 class (possibly, "Jewish Heroes through the Ages"), wearing little suits and chatting caustically about how disorganized things were. He was, of anyone I've known, the most clearly destined for success and stardom from early on.

Love Cake: Poetry and resistance

Love Cake

Love Cake

by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
(TSAR,
2011;
$17.95)

The first time I heard Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha's poetry was in a song on Lal's 2008 album Deportation. The track, "Your Body Could Start a War," is about airport security post 9/11. It starts with an eerie warped bass which crashes into a loud and steady beat, followed by an urgent piano to the climax of Piepzna-Samarasinha's vocals: "my lover's tits are explosive -- hips are illegal -- my lip gloss it a bomb and so is my hijab -- we are terrorists for crossing these lines on a map no one but them can see."

How to say 'yes' to shame-free sex

What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-Free Guide to Sex and Safety

What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-Free Guide to Sex and Safety

by Jaclyn Friedman
(Seal Press,
2011;
$19.50)

After reading What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-Free Guide to Sex and Safety, I had some of the best sex of my life, and felt happier and healthier in my relationship.

No, this isn't a phony endorsement for your run of the mill dating advice or sex tips handbook. It is definitely not in reference to an article I read in Cosmopolitan magazine. In fact, What You Really Really Want is a desperately needed antidote to the slew of toxic sewage in the form of "sex and relationship advice" targeted at girls and women.
