    Millennials Strike Back

    Millennials are making their mark on a world that is profoundly different to the one their parents knew.

    Millennials, those born in the final decades of the twentieth century, have had bad press for a long time. Now they are fighting back as they come of age in a world radically changed from that experienced by previous generations.

    Even the oldest were still in primary school when the Soviet Union collapsed, when deregulation swept...

    Hotel Homeless
    Jim Hearn

    'What becomes apparent very quickly when you don't have a roof over your head is that your body continues to function in the same way it did when you had a place to call home. Having a body can be a real drag.'

    With so much discussion taking place around the future of housing in Australia, it is a good opportunity to revisit Jim Hearn’s essay ‘Hotel Homeless’, published in Griffith Review 44: Cultural Solutions. Hearn explores his own experience of homelessness and the accompanying hopelessness that so often results. Jim Hearn is a recipient of a 2017 Griffith Review Fellowship.

  • The Moonlight State revisited

    ‘Moonlight reflections’ and
    Four Corners

    This was the most troubling question. Why did it not seem to matter? Is there, deep within the soul of this nation of prisoners and prison guards, a secret belief that corruption works, and is part of who we are?

    On Monday night, the ABC’s Four Corners aired ‘Breaking the Brotherhood’, an episode that looks at the story behind Chris Masters’ landmark 1987 report ‘The Moonlight State’. In ‘Moonlight reflections’, from Griffith Review 21: Hidden Queensland, Masters recalls the mammoth effort involved in a report that ‘nearly finished’ him; the subsequent ‘defamation decade'; and the questions that lingered with him after the Fitzgerald Inquiry.

    In Griffith Review 57: Perils of Populism (out 1 August), Nigel Powell – another of the key informant in ‘The Moonlight State’ and Fitzgerald Inquiry – writes at length for the first time on his own experiences.
