The Monthly April issue 2022


There’s a new wave of independent candidates and they threaten to upend Australian federal politics. Margaret Simons meets the most prominent of them, and surveys their policies and prospects for the upcoming election.

Climate scientist Joëlle Gergis writes about the cataclysmic floods of her family’s home town, Lismore, and warns that this is exactly what climate change looks like. International journalist Nick Bryant writes about the new US ambassador to Australia, Caroline Kennedy, and the famous political dynasty she represents.

Also in the April issue: Helen Garner shares her latest diaries, Mahmood Fazal writes about a most unlikely debating team – in Hobart’s Risdon Prison – and we cover the latest in film, books, the arts and TV. Plus much more.
