One Hundred Days of Summer
Publisher:Penguin Books Australia
Written in Bob Ellis's inimitable style, this is a very personal book about a period of intense political change in Australia. Ellis's diary-style narrative starts on 12 November, 2009 (when Rhys Muldoon picks Ellis up from Parliament House and drives him to visit the poet Les Murray at Bunyah for some lively political discussions) and ends on 7 January, 2010, when Bob's sometime mentor, Mike Rann, faces his recent assailant in an Adelaide court. The book includes coverage and analysis of the next sitting of the New South Wales Parliament and the result of the South Australian election. Bob Ellis is close to many of the political players during this rapidly changing period in Australian politics, but he also manages to stay plugged in to the cultural scene, and has plenty to say about the films, books and theatre of the period. It's very much a pre-election 'rant'.
