There the plum role of editor will soon be his, he reasons.
The Record of the Four Holy Weapons
And that is what he sets out to do, in a series of ever more calamitous, destructive and amoral adventures. A satirical novel by Miles Franklin Literary Award shortlisted author Craig Sherborne, Off the Record stylishly skewers tabloid journalism and male vanity. Ruthlessly riveting. But he is a brilliant character…He is a terrible person but somehow you find yourself rooting for him. It is a tribute to Craig Sherborne, who has created a character embodying all that is wrong with journalism, yet made him human enough to be likeable.
It is grounded in the humour the author employs…Sherborne, a former journalist, sheds light on the industry with comedy and subtle sensitivity.
With the crystallisation and compression of poetry, Sherborne explores ideas of property, freedom and loyalty, and produces a novel as beautiful in its conjunctions as the chandelier swinging over its landscapes. The Text Publishing Company. Three-time winner: Small Publisher of the Year.
