AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Oscar Brittle is the creation of Glenn Fowler, Christopher Smyth and Gareth Malone. In an eighteen month campaign to wrest control of the debates in the nation's newspapers and magazines from the wishy-washies and the weaklings, Oscar Brittle became (arguably) the most significant and powerful contributor to public debate in contemporary Australia. This book is a collection of published letters and their originals, published replies from various correspondents, email exchanges between Oscar and editors, as well as the rejected letters, all interspersed with gorgeous illustrations throughout.' (Publisher's blurb.)
