The Catastrophe Continues: Twenty-One Years of Interviews – John Clarke
The Catastrophe Continues: Twenty-One Years of Interviews is the hilarious new book from brilliant Australian comic & actor John Clarke.
For twenty years, Bryan Dawe has been trying to get some sense out of John Clarke. In 1987, John and Bryan began to broadcast on radio a series of weekly interviews in which prominent and newsworthy figures spoke openly about issues of the day. This noble public service soon took to television screens, where their weekly report has brought a welcome splash of colour to the week’s events for over two decades.
To celebrate this milestone, Text is publishing the very best of these interviews in one volume for the first time. All the stars of the era are here: Keating, Kennett, Howard, Costello, Latham, Ruddock, Rudd. John, as the prominent or newsworthy figure, deals with matters as he sees fit. Bryan persists with dignity and strives for understanding.
