‘So Far, So Good : An Entertainment’
BY ROSS FITZGERALD & ANTONY FUNNELL
HYBRID PUBLISHING : MELBOURNE, 2018,
ISBN 978-1-925272-97-0. $22.95.

The new Grafton Everest adventure ‘SO FAR, SO GOOD, which is released on May 1 2018, centres on our hapless professor’s obsession with food and fame; his relationship with his increasingly independent wife Janet; their wayward (and soon to be married) daughter Lee-Anne; and his much-loved terrier Maddie.

This cleverly plotted satire exposes the sad state of universities and of what now passes for politics in the West. Our obsession with technology, our fear of outsiders and our distrust of elites also come in for a pasting.

Caught in a series of concentric conspiracies, Dr Professor Grafton Everest manages to save the day, save the world and even launch Australia on the road to a republic.

Well-known author and commentator, Professor Ross Fitzgerald AM, and Antony Funnell, of ABC Radio National’s “Future Tense” fame, have produced what publisher Louis de Vries calls “the funniest Grafton Everest novel yet.”

‘So Far, So Good : An Entertainment’ is Ross Fitzgerald’s fortieth book. Other works include a memoir ‘My Name Is Ross: An Alcoholic’s Journey’, which is available as an e-Book & a Talking Book from Vision Australia ; and the sexual/political satire ‘Going Out Backwards: A Grafton Everest Adventure’, which was shortlisted for the 2017 Russell Prize for Humour Writing.

Antony Funnell is a Walkley Award-winning journalist, broadcaster, and author. He presents the weekly podcast/radio program “Future Tense” on ABC Radio National. Over the years, he has worked for many of Australia’s leading news and current affairs programs, including “AM”, “7.30 Report”, and “Background Briefing”. Antony is the author of the non-fiction work ‘The Future and Related Nonsense’.
