Australia's Game

Stories, Essays, Verse & Drama Inspired by the Australian Game of Football

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In Australia, nothing excites such passion as the tribal loyalties generated by Australian Rules football. Australia’s Game is a collection of essays and writings capturing the agony and the ecstasy of our great game from some of Australia’s best storytellers.
More than 50 contributors share their oval dreams in reflections ranging from witty and affectionate reminiscences and expressions of hope for the future, to statements of deep alienation and betrayal. Featured writers include Don Watson, Paul Kelly, Geoffrey Blainey, Gerald Murnane, Paul Daffey, John Harms, Emma Quayle, Barry Oakley, Peter Corris, Manfred Jurgensen, Kate Eltham, Vin Maskell, Peter Schwab and many more.
A revised and updated edition of The Greatest Game—first published in 1988—the book retains a selection of the most poignant writings from the original version, including those by historian Manning Clark, playwright David Williamson and broadcaster Andrea Stretton.
Each year millions of Australians attend or watch the footy—they argue about it, revel in it, despair of it, or even make vain attempts to ignore it. While newspapers keep us informed of the scores or who’s been dropped or traded, Australia’s Game explores the deeper contribution that football has on our culture and society.
From the dramatic moments on footy’s centre stage, to the battles played out on dusty outback ovals, Australia’s Game contains something for everyone.
