The Monthly February issue 2022


Kicking off the election year, acclaimed international correspondent Nick Bryant profiles the man who would be Australian prime minister, Anthony Albanese. Former senator Scott Ludlam lifts the lid on the insidious networks that over-influence our politics, Gina Rushton writes a remarkable account of the prosecution of a serial sexual abuser on Sydney’s rail network, and Monthly editor Nick Feik catalogues the Morrison government’s failures to prepare Australia for the latest COVID outbreak. Elizabeth Finkel describes one Australian response to the pandemic that has gone right.

Also featured in February are new essays on the rising numbers of crocodiles in the NT, the threat to the world’s most significant rock art site in WA, the coming Biennale of Sydney, Pablo Larraín’s film ‘Spencer’, and the universal predicament of moving house. Plus much more.
