It may seem odd to describe a book that was published almost 30 years ago as highly topical. But the 1995 Miles Franklin Award winner, ‘The Hand That Signed The Paper’, is just that.
The book’s author, Helen Dale, has since established herself as one of Australia’s true polymaths. She has continued to produce magnificent novels, such as ‘Kingdom of the Wicked’, as well as casting a liberal lens over the issues of the day for Law & Liberty (where she is a Senior Writer), The Australian, Quillette and most notably of course, The Spectator.
