The Bedwetter, By Sarah Silverman

Confronting taboos has been Sarah Silverman's stock-in-trade for the past 15 years. Through her stand-up routines, television shows and film appearances, the US comic has tackled subjects such as Aids, the Holocaust, rape and race with eye-watering directness. Expertly phrased, politically incorrect one-liners such as "I was raped by a doctor. Which, for a Jewish girl, is so bittersweet," are delivered with a Pollyanna-ish smile, and have frequently landed her in hot water.

Ruck and Maul: Women stoop to conquer as popularity grows before Olympic debut

Their haka may be amazingly graceful but New Zealand's Black Ferns are posing an unmistakeable threat to England's hopes of winning today's Women's World Cup final in London. Inspired by the hot-stepping Carla Hohepa on the wing, the champions of the last three tournaments looked unstoppable in Thursday's 45-7 defeat of France in the semi-final. England, winners in 1994, brushed Australia aside 15-0 in the last four and after drawing crowds of 3,000 to pool matches at the University of Surrey, they are hoping for plenty of support at the 14,000-capacity Twickenham Stoop. Seven of the tournament's 11 referees are women, and the final will be handled by Australia's Sarah Corrigan. Mindful that both sexes will play Sevens when rugby rejoins the Olympics in 2016, the International Rugby Board are enthusiastic. It was different in 1991 when a rather ad hoc first Women's World Cup made a loss of £15,000 and organisers were thankful to the Rugby Football Union and their secretary, "Cuddly" Dudley Wood, for making up most of the shortfall.

Perfumes: The A-Z Guide By Luca Turin & Tania

So pungent are the odours which waft from these pages that one almost expects to find a hidden capsule of perfume smuggled inside, but credit is instead due to the authors' evocative and vivid writing style, convincing us that perfume isn't a science but an art. Never again will you be able to walk past a perfume counter with quite the same nonchalance.
