An anthology of David Marr's powerful ruminations on art, religion, sex, censorship and the law, his unflinching profiles of party leaders and forensic accounts of social and political controversy.

David Marr is the rarest of breeds - one of Australia's most unflinching, forensic reporters of political controversy, and one of its most subtle and eloquent biographers. In Marr's hands, those things we call reportage and commentary are elevated to artful and illuminating chronicles of our time.

My Country collects his powerful reflections on religion, sex, censorship and the law; striking accounts of leaders, moralists and scandalmongers; elegant ruminations on the arts and the lives of artists. And some memorable new pieces.

"My country is the subject that interests me most and I have spent my career trying to untangle it's mysteries." - David Marr

  • Key events in recent Australian history and politics

    by on

    This collection of David Matt's articles dealing with important events, authors and personalities is a very good read. I was left somewhat confused with his descriptions of John Howard and Bill Shorten. In Howard's case, Marr gives him plenty of plaudits with occasional mentions of the poorer aspects of his PM-ship such as Tampa and the invasion of Iraq. In Shortens case, Matt's overall assessment is negative in relation to his leadership of the ALP. The 2019 election is not covered which might suggest that Marr was correct. However, Australia's future in regard to major issues will probably show that Shorten and ALP policies were the right leader and the right policies.

  • Another example of professionalism

    Made the mistake, initially, of using another supplier. Still waiting for my refund for over a month. The reliability and efficiency of Angus & Robertson is second to none.
