Double dissolution : heartbreak and chaos on the campaign trail
Double dissolution : heartbreak and chaos on the campaign trail
Zachariah, Lee2016
Double Dissolution is a contemporary election campaign narrative that probes personal and political failures and upheavals, and explores possible futures, by a talented writer on the rise. Lee provides a fresh, informed and suitably baffled viewpoint on the turns of Turnbull, the shifts of Shorten, the darkness of Dutton; he connects with candidates and voters on the road, discovering complacency, hope, and contradictory party narratives. As the people look for hope and the candidates look for power, Lee looks for answers. If his own fortunes are tied to those of the government, then this might be the most important election of his life. This is a humorous and intelligent work - a snapshot of Australian politics and society through a unique lens, highly relatable to a generation brought up with endless, though often illusory, choices, and increasingly alienating political messages.
