Preface

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.
