Tony Wilson’s riotous debut novel Players has just been released, and is already winning fans.

“I couldn’t put it down.”

‘Rampaging’ Roy Slaven

“Very funny. We’re lucky it’s just fiction and people in TV aren’t really like this.”

Dave Hughes

“Wilson lines them up from point blank range and fires—at television
celebrity and those who cloak themselves in it. It’s very funny.”


This hilarious satire of sports media and rampant celebrity egos is a must-read.

Available in all good bookstores now, RRP $23.00
