HarperCollinsPublishers congratulates Pamela Williams on winning the 2013 Walkley Book Award for her hard-hitting and utterly compelling expose of media, powerful mates and multi-million-dollar deals, Killing Fairfax: Packer, Murdoch and the Ultimate Revenge, described by the judges as a ‘superbly detailed account of the financial hollowing of Fairfax’.
Pamela was honoured with the award at the 58th Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism. The Walkley Book Award celebrates the value and importance of journalism and acknowledges the proud line-up of Australian writers who have taken subjects of enduring topicality and consequence from news bulletins, eye-witness reporting, investigations and historical records and provided readers with expanded factual detail, revelation and greater clarity of analysis in book form.
Shona Martyn, Publishing Director, HarperCollinsPublishers, said: ‘Killing Fairfax exemplifies modern journalism at its best. In essence, it is a book length scoop — the product of exemplary research, carefully nurtured contacts and clear, accessible and stylish writing. All of us at HarperCollins are proud of Pamela Williams and Killing Fairfax — deserved winners of the Walkley Book Award.’
Copies of Killing Fairfax (9780732297664) stickered with ‘Winner Walkley Book Award’ can be ordered from HarperCollins.
