The Monthly summer issue 2021


The bumper December–January issue has a whole summer’s worth of terrific reading. It features Paul Kelly’s ode to Christmas music, Rebecca Huntley on the cultural power of the carbon lobby, Megan Davis on truth-telling, Noel Pearson on neoliberalism, Osman Faruqi on Australian pop sensation The Kid Laroi, new essays by historians Alan Atkinson and Mark McKenna, and a great spy story by Harry Windsor. Bronwyn Adcock profiles independent MP Helen Haines, and we publish new poetry by Nam Le, cover the blockbusters Dune and No Time To Die, and review books by Jonathan Franzen and Gerald Murnane, plus much more.
