Sean Kelly in conversation

Please note: This is an online event.

Join us to hear journalist Sean Kelly discuss his new book, The Game: a Portrait of Scott Morrison.

We understand already that Australia wanted Scott Morrison. That we wanted Scott Morrison was the secret we did not know about ourselves. What precisely that secret is forms the subject of this book. Morrison understands – in a way that no other recent politician has – how politics has become a game. He also understands something essential about Australia – something many of us are unwilling to admit, even to ourselves. But there are things Scott Morrison does not understand. This is the story of those failures, too – and the way that, as his prime ministership continues, Morrison’s failure to think about politics as anything other than a game has become a dangerous liability, both to him and to us.
