This month hosts Julia Sansone and Laura Thiele explore the many facets of 'after'. In Patrick Hills' feature, The Grave Truth, learn about the people who care for the bodies of the homeless after they pass, and dive into the aftermath of the imagined finacial ruin of the US with Nick Carr and Lily Lazzaroti in their review of Lionel Shriver's The Mandibles for the first Book Club of 2017. Investigate the mysterious placebo effect with Hamish Vallance, and get the lowdown on the month in politics in the lastest instalment of Politics on the Couch with Claudia Long and Tash Grivas.
