Malcolm Knox is a writer of remarkable range.
In his non-fiction, he’s investigated the history of mining in Australia, the jury system, the ice epidemic, Australia’s supermarket duopoly and Greg Chappell. As a novelist, his award-winning books have explored surfing, celebrity, mental illness and male friendship. He is a Walkley award-winning journalist who has served as both literary editor and chief cricket correspondent at different stages of his career at the Sydney Morning Herald.
