Congratulations to our authors Ross Fitzgerald and Ian McFadyen for their book Going Out Backwards being shortlisted for the 2017 Russell Award for Humour Writing!
Six ‘absurd, disrespectful and very funny titles’ shortlisted for Australia’s only humour writing prize.
Bumbling Mangoland academic, Professor Dr Grafton Everest, has been elected to the Australian Senate, without really knowing why, and due to the influx of weird Independents, finds himself holding the balance of power. Despite this, his personal life is a train wreck. A prostatectomy has left him impotent, his daughter is staging a theatrical event with an outlaw motorcycle gang and he suspects his wife is planning to have him put to sleep. On top of it all, Australia is facing natural disaster from Tectonic Change. Can Grafton save his family, his country and himself?
