August 06, 2018

Thrilled to announce that ‘The Enigmatic Mr Deakin’ by JdM author Judith Brett has just won the State Library of NSW, 2018 National Biography Award!

Congratulations to our own Judith, and fabulous publisher Text Publishing! And you can buy the award-winning biography – now in paperback AND hardback!

Judges had this to say: “The Enigmatic Mr Deakin is a beautifully researched and satisfyingly rounded picture of an intriguing prime minister’s public and private lives, revealing just how intricately connected the two can be. It gives rare insight into the intellectual and emotional life of a political figure, aspects we seldom acknowledge in politicians today.”
