The 2020 Walkley Book Award winner

We are delighted to announce that Fallen by Lucie Morris-Marr has been awarded the 2020 Walkley Book Award!

The judges had this to say:
“This compelling analysis of the trial of George Pell stood out for the sheer quality of the writing, the momentum of the story and new insights on how power operates in Australia. Morris-Marr adeptly builds context around a complex trial that grabbed global attention with a clear dissection of the legal process, media machinations and the legacy for a besieged Catholic Church, while weaving in her personal and often harrowing experience. Her tenacity and insight has produced a brilliant and eye-opening book.”
