Readings have announced their Books of the Year and, in their collective wisdom, they’ve selected Killing: Misadventures in Violence as one the best non-fiction titles of 2009. WELL I NEVER DID ETC.

That’s right, as well as editing Overland, Jeff somehow finds the time to dash off award-winning books, get nominated for the Melbourne Prize for Literature, write for Crikey, the Age and New Matilda, co-present a radio show [Aural Text with alicia sometimes Wed 12-2 RRR 102.7FM], and generally gad about town speaking in public about all manner of political and literary affairs.

So, if you needed another reason to subscribe, maybe that’s it. The guy at the helm knows his shiznit.
