'Jimmy Brockett' (1951) is an example of that rare species, the Australian political novel. This story of political corruption, bribery and the manipulations of a political party resonates with contemporary overtones. Set in Sydney, this portrait of a notable Australian is salutory reading, demonstrating that everything old is new again.
