What does a young footballer do to cut loose?
At night, some play what they think of as pranks, or games: night games with women. Sometimes these involve consensual sex, sometimes not, and often the lines are blurred. Both a courtroom drama and a riveting work of narrative journalism, this is a breakthrough book by one of the leading young lights of Australian writing.
Download book club notes for Night Games. In a captivating dialogue, Krien's explores sex, power and privilege in Australia's sporting culture. Read it and you'll never think about the Saturday game in the same way.
Once again she has managed to present a riveting and disturbing set of stories, voices and arguments that are not structured into a polemic, but that nevertheless draw a clear case for cultural change. Her testing and teasing out of so many assumptions changed the way I felt about football.
Her detailed research, sharp observations and intelligent writing, mixed with compassion for the two lead players in this unhappy drama, make Night Games a serious addition to the literature on sport, sex, consent and power. Black Inc. Download high-res cover. About the author.
