Paperback / softback
Albert is a young Indigenous man who is the best player in the local Aussie Rules team in his small town of Duneldin. For the first time in most people's living memory, the team makes the grand final of the local footy competition with high hopes of winning, especially if Albert and some of his teammates are playing at their best on the day.
But incidents after training and at school make Albert think about the extent to which he is valued as player and as a young Aboriginal man, and what is most important.
Set against the backdrop of an Australian country town where the footy club is the most powerful institution in town,
Michael Fiddian's debut novel, The End of the Game, exposes contemporary issues of culture and race that are experienced by Indigenous sportsmen and women.
This novel tackles one of the big issues for Australian sport and society. An enlightening read for young adults, sports lovers and those who care about discrimination and injustice.
