About the Author
Emma Tom is an award-winning Australian journalist, author, broadcaster and musician. She has an opinion on just about anything but is particularly interested in ethics, feminism, sex, religion, democracy, gender, Socrates, postmodernism, human nature, East Asian politics, terrorism, television vampires and the delightful disgustingness of dogs.
In general, people either really love or really hate Emma Tom's work. The former have given her a bunch of prizes for her books and her journalism. The latter enjoy e-mailing her at regular intervals to call her talent non-existent, her humour gutter-like and her teeth monstrously oversized. These are all things she has learned to live with.
