              Why did the sacking of rugby player Israel Folau over his social media posts become one of the nation's most polarizing controversies? How could one man's religious views activate so many people in modern Australia? And what does the sides people found themselves on tell us about... the kind of country we've become? Starting with this striking incident, triple Walkley Award winning journalist Malcolm Knox paints a vivid portrait of the divisions that underlie our recent history, from marriage equality to the covid lockdown. He shows how free speech has become the new flashpoint of the 'culture wars', and how it remains our deepest national faultline.

              A house perched impossibly on a cliff overlooking the stunning, iconic Bluebird Beach. Prime real estate, yet somehow not real estate at all, The Lodge is, like those who live in it, falling apart. Gordon Grimes has become the accidental keeper of this last relic of an endangered... world. He lives in The Lodge with his wife Kelly who is trying to leave him, their son Ben who will do anything to save him, his god-daughter Lou who is hiding from her own troubles, and Leonie, the family matriarch who has trapped them here for their own good. But Gordon has no money and is running out of time to conserve his homeland. His love for this way of life will drive him, and everyone around him, to increasingly desperate risks. In the end, what will it cost them to hang onto their past? Acclaimed writer Malcolm Knox has written a classic Australian novel about the myths that come to define families and communities, and the lies that uphold them. It's about a certain kind of Australia that we all recognise, and a certain kind of Australian whose currency is running out. Change is coming to Bluebird, whether they like it or not. And the secrets they've been keeping and the lies they've been telling can't save them now. Savage, funny, revelatory and brilliant, Bluebird exposes the hollowness of the stories told to glorify a dying culture and show how those who seek to preserve those myths end up being crushed by them.

              Compared to the controversies of contemporary cricket - riven as it is with match-fixing, gambling, cheating and national politics - most people think of the early days of Test cricket as a time of gentlemanly competition and camaraderie, with any disputes settled by Queensberry ...Rules over a glass of port. Not so. Cricket between the 1870s and 1914 was fraught with exactly the same bitter, vicious and greedy bad behaviour as the current game. It was cricket in the raw, explored in depth for the first time by the insightful eye of Malcolm Knox, with a genuine affection for the legends of the day - players like WG Grace, Fred Spofforth, Victor Trumper, Joe Darling, Monty Noble and Stanley Jackson.

              'When we are young adults, not only are we looking for signposts but we are afraid of ourselves, frightened of where our tendencies may lead. Are we all just a tiny bit mad, and were my obsessions, like my grandfather's, always going to take on a mild and manageable aspect?' In O...n Obsession, Malcolm Knox contemplates love, Proust, soulmates in fiction, palindromic numbers and bloodlines, among other fixations, and wonders if the obsessive quest marks a retreat from life.

              Wicketkeepers are a unique breed, and something of a club. Always at the heart of the action, they know the game better than almost anyone else on the pitch. They can pick the bowlers better than most (what it's like keeping to Warnie or Lillee) and in modern times they've had to... hold their place amongst the top six batsmen. Some of our greatest players, and certainly our most beloved, have been wicketkeepers. But what's not often noted is how often they represent the spirit of the team, from Marsh's gruff resilience to Healy's combative chippiness to Gilchrist's overabundance of talent to Haddin's plucky, ageing determination. From award-winning journalist and author Malcolm Knox comes a new inside history of Australia's favourite game.

              Greg Chappell was the outstanding Australian batsman of his generation. Though he had an appetite for big scores, it was his calm brow and courtly manner that bowlers found just as disheartening. When he followed his brother Ian into the Australian captaincy, his feat of scoring ...centuries in each innings of his captaincy debut has been unequalled. After retiring he went into coaching, spending some time with South Australia and working as a consultant at Pakistan's National Cricket Academy. In 2005 he was appointed coach of the Indian national cricket team on a two-year term - a stint that included a stormy public falling out with the captain, Sourav Ganguly. He has been Head Coach of Cricket Australia's Centre of Excellence in Brisbane and in 2010 Greg Chappell was made Cricket Australia's first full-time selector and National Talent Manager - a position of unequalled power. In this book Greg Chappell will reflect upon how things have changed since he grew up playing cricket in his backyard with his brothers Ian and Trevor; how Australia's fortunes have see-sawed over the years; the great teams and the great players; the scandals and the opportunities. He has been a cricketer, captain, commentator and selector - he has seen it all.
