Event Details

You are invited to meet David Hill when he introduces his new book The Fair and the Foul.

Sport in Australia is a national obsession and in this book David Hill recalls his encounters with the great and the good in Australian sport as well as some of its darker moments.

Bringing his years of personal experience both playing and working in the sporting world, David Hill vividly narrates its rise in Australia since the end of the nineteenth century to the golden age of the 1950s when Australia ruled the world in tennis, swimming and athletics.

He takes us through the shift in sport from relative innocence to its commercialisation and the uglier sides of a national obsession including the corruption, the drugs, the sexism and racism.

This book is a rivetting personal take on a subject that so many Australians follow fanatically.
