A tip of the hat when and where it’s due … so congratulations to The Australian and to the editor of its monthly Literary review, Stephen Romei, for publishing Mark Day’s earnest, broadly discursive, insightful and sometimes amusing review of Bruce Dover’s Rupert’s Adventures in China: How Murdoch Lost A Fortune and Found a Wife . Murdoch paper reviews Murdoch book. Why ever not?

A month or two back we doubted that this could happen. We are now, obviously, set to rights. The inclusion does The Australian credit.
