Known for his wild wit and irreverent commentary, Guy Rundle is one of Australia’s sharpest and most entertaining minds.

Practice distils his best writing on politics, culture, class and more. In it, Rundle roves the campaign trails of Obama and Trump, Rudd and Abbott; rides the Greyhound around a desolate America; bails up Bob Katter and Pauline Hanson; and excavates the deeper meanings of everything from Nirvana to Anzac Day.

Guy Rundle is writer-at-large for Crikey. He has previously been the editor of Arena Magazine, producer of TV shows from Comedy Inc. to future retro cult classic Vulture, the writer of four hit shows for the satirist Max Gillies, and the author of numerous books, including A Revolution in the Making, Down to the Crossroads, Clivosaurus and Inland Empire.

‘No Australian journalist knows as much, feels as deeply and thinks as hard as Guy Rundle – his work is touched by genius.’—Robert Manne

‘Rundle is at his best when he’s crashing his way into the inner circle, and tipping over the drinks fridge on the way out. This is that work.’—Marni Cordell, Head of News, BuzzFeed Australia.

‘Guy Rundle is a sui generis force of nature, as a cross between Habermas and Hunter S. Thompson would be, or Karl and Groucho Marx. In a world of “systematically distorted communication”, he is both inspiration and consolation.’ — Don Watson

‘Guy Rundle is a rare talent. He has an ace journalist’s instinct for a good story, he has intellectual curiosity as well as intellectual gravitas, and he’s so very sharp and caustically funny. He can cut like a knife, and he can make you laugh out loud.’ —Christos Tsiolkas

‘Guy Rundle is always a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how we got here.’ —First Dog on the Moon

‘Beneath Rundle’s wisecracks runs deep wisdom about the currents of contemporary history.’ —Judith Brett
