9780091828714: Lunch of Blood

"Nobody likes to feel that anyone - let alone a writer - can see beyond the facade they present to the world. Antonella doesn't understand this, believing as she does that the truth is never ugly." - from the foreword by Deborah Thomas

Lunch of Blood is a powerful collection of profiles by Antonella Gambotto-Burke, one of Australia's most controversial and uncompromising interviewers. She is penetrating in her observations, ruthless in her descriptions, and not afraid to have opinions. We may never meet the people laid bare by these profiles, but there is writing here which will make the reader feel as unsettled as the interviewees were. 

Subjects include: 
Martin Amis
Nick Cave
Edward de Bono
Gerard Depardieu
Alex Dimitriades
Andrew Ettingshausen
Rachel Hunter
Sophie Lee
Elle Macpherson
Madam Lash (Gretel Pinniger)
Elle McFeast
Morrissey
Richard Neville
John Pilger
Siimon Reynolds
Noah Taylor
Naomi Wolf 

... and many more!
