The Simple Death by Michael Duffy

Reviewed by
March 2011, no. 329

Michael Duffy, perhaps best known as a newspaper columnist and contrarian, and co-presenter with Paul Comrie-Thomson of ABC Radio National’s conservative corrective Counterpoint, has also been an editor, notably of the Independent Monthly (1993–96), and a publisher. In 1996 he set up his own company, Duffy & Snellgrove, which mainly produced serious non-fiction books, but also John Birmingham’s He Died with a Felafel in His Hand (1994) and the poetry of Les Murray. This house regrettably ceased publishing new titles in 2004. Duffy is also the author of Man of Honour (2003), a biography of John Macarthur, and Latham and Abbott (2004),which traced a self-explanatory rivalry.
