The Gadfly Papers

THE GADFLY PAPERS, Robert Macklin’s delightful collection of columns, provides a charming antidote to the Canberra knockers. Whether it’s the rise and fall of political leaders – especially Kevin Rudd whose authorised biography he wrote – or the increasingly popular Julia Gillard, or the bully boy Tony Abbott, Macklins’s columns give an insight unavailable elsewhere. And as he touches upon a remarkable range of subjects – from freedom of speech to religious intolerance to climate change or the pleasures of a ‘capital life’ – a new picture of Canberra emerges.
