Share A Secret Reviewed

Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.

Woman's Day dated September 2nd, 1996


Just one look at the hunky new teacher and she knew she had to have him, even though he had a young wife

This week's picture for Share A Secret is one of the oddest we've seen for some time. To the left, a deranged woman is holding a lipstick in one hand and dangling an ugly banana-coloured telephone in the other. Fashion tip: don't wear a white blouse with dark blue rose-like things on it. To the right, a woman in a particularly attractive pink check shirt holds another telephone (which I instantly recognised as standard issue from Consolidated Press a few years ago). Even the presence of a red t-shirt is only vaguely reassuring.

All doesn't become clear when we read the actual tale, detailing how hunky Mr Clark the English teacher turned out to be the next-door neighbour as well as a bona fide man-sized teenage lust inducer. Hopeless romantics will be pleased to know, though, that the marriage was not permanently wrecked and teenage virtue was not defiled. Well, not much anyway.
