ABC Radio National's Paul Barclay is in-conversation with Don Watson discussing Watsonia.

Watsonia gathers the fruits of a writing life. It covers everything from Australian humour to America gone berserk; from Don Bradman to Oscar Wilde; from birds and horses to history and politics. Wherever Don Watson turns his incisive gaze, the results are as illuminating as they are enjoyable.

Watsonia displays the many sides of Don Watson: historian, speechwriter, social critic, humourist, biographer and lover of nature and sports. Replete with wit, wisdom and diverse pleasures, this comprehensive collection includes a wide-ranging introduction by the author and several previously unpublished pieces. No other writer has journeyed further into the soul of Australia and returned to tell the tale.

Don Watson is one of Australia’s most acclaimed writers and thinkers. He is an award-winning author, a former speechwriter, a historian and a satirist. His many books include Caledonia Australis, Recollections of a Bleeding Heart: A Portrait of Paul Keating PM, Death Sentence: The Decay of Public Language, American Journeys and The Bush. In 2010 he was awarded the Philip Hodgins Memorial Medal for Excellence in Literature.
