The Australian Moment : George Megalogenis

Adelaide Writers' Week - Thursday, March 8 2012


East Stage, 12pm George MegalogenisThe Australian Moment is a remarkable account of Australia’s transformation since the 1970s. Through interviews with former Prime Ministers Fraser, Hawke, Keating, Howard and Rudd, as well as Whitlam's confidant Graham Freudenberg, Megalogenis offers readers a rare insight into many aspects of the internal politicking, decision-making and bids for the legacy of our astonishing period of significant reform.
