Not yet rated | write a review

An insightful and vigorous biography, this account chronicles the life of Australia’s most influential newspaper editor, Graham Perkin, and the history of the newspaper to which he devoted his tremendous talents. A portrait of media power gone too soon, this volume enumerates Perkin’s numerous contributions to society, including his hiring the first journalist from a non English-speaking background, some of the first university graduates, and the first women to produce articles on topics more substantial than knitting and baking. From the Fairfax Media boardroom to the death throes of the Whitlam government, this account paints a vivid picture of Perkin’s remarkable career.
