    Don Watson is surely one of the greatest contemporary chroniclers of Australian life: sharp-witted, coolly observant, politically savvy and instinctively empathetic. A lifelong fan (with caveats) of American culture and politics, he’s equally good when writing about these subjects – and has been uncannily prescient about how both cultures have developed, as this excellent collection demonstrates. Here, he veers from reportage (visiting New Orleans post-Katrina) to memoir (with excerpts from Reflections on a Bleeding Heart, and musings on its aftermath), to opinion (a blistering parting defence of The Book Show and Ramona Koval) and – of course – his much-loved, acidly acute attacks on bureaucratic language and corporate-speak.
