A new book by Niki Savva
Scribe has acquired world rights in a new book by author and political commentator Niki Savva. The new book will be the third of Savva’s covering the last three Coalition governments, which started with The Road to Ruin in 2016 and was continued by Plots and Prayers in 2019. In it, she lays out the final unravelling of the Coalition at the hands of a resurgent Labor and the so-called teal independents that culminated in the historic 2022 election.
Savva’s editor and Scribe’s publisher-in-chief, Henry Rosenbloom, says, ‘When we published Niki’s first book, So Greek, in 2010, which was not only a memoir but also revealed the inside story of the rivalry between John Howard and Peter Costello, I had no idea that this was the beginning of a sequence of major books about Australian politics.
’Written by one of Australia’s now most trusted political commentators, Niki’s new book will be the unique final volume of an epic political trilogy.’
‘There are many reasons why Morrison lost,’ Savva says, ‘and why Albanese defied history and the doubters to prevail. I will be exploring all this and more in the book.’
Scribe will publish Savva’s book in Australia and New Zealand in December 2022.
