The Monthly November issue 2021


With half the nation still in lockdown, Richard Denniss investigates where the national vaccine rollout went so wrong. Gina Rushton sees the effects of the economic downturn in Sydney’s food banks. And Russell Marks looks at the emergence of the NGO sector as the new social-service providers of choice for governments.

We visit a new memorial at Bondi Beach, a sacred site in Western Victoria, and a battlefield in West Papua.

The November issue also features new poetry by Nam Le, and reviews of the long-awaited James Bond film No Time To Die, new books by Maggie Nelson, Colm Tóibín and Nobel Prize–winning author Olga Tokarczuk, and the SBS TV series New Gold Mountain.
