Cameron Woodhead’s review of SO FAR, SO GOOD.

Cameron Woodhead’s review of Ross Fitzgerald & Antony Funnell, SO FAR, SO GOOD – AN ENTERTAINMENT (Hybrid Publishing : Melbourne, 2018, $22.95.

Professor Dr Grafton Everest returns for a sixth adventure in ‘So Far, So Good’ and he’s on hiatus from politics, having blimpishly held the Senate to ransom (like a kind of superannuated academic version of Clive Palmer) last time.

The bloated mock-hero was never going to retire quietly to Mangoland, of course, and he’s about to be unwittingly lured back into the fray by machinations from afar.

Appointed to a diplomatic post in London, where Machiavellian forces in the government have grand plans for him, Everest blithely rides the gravy train as a game of ‘Yes, Minister’ slowly turns into ‘House of Cards’ around him.

A witty merger of academic satire and political lampoon.

Cameron Woodhead, ‘The Sydney Morning Herald’, May 12-13, 2018, Spectrum p 22. (Also in ‘The Age’ May 12-13, 2018)
