Review

This is powerful, important writing, and Krien shows her workings throughout -- Tim Lewis, Observer

Haunting ... arresting... devastating. A challenging, necessary assault on misogynistic "jock culture". Its arrival in Britain could hardly be more appositely timed in light of the Ched Evans case, The Times

Jaw-dropping ... illuminating. Krien shines a light inside the locker room and beyond., Sport Magazine

It is a challenging, sometimes jarring but necessary assault on misogynistic “jock culture” -- Matt Dickinson, The Times

Extraordinary and necessary… Though it’s an Australian story, it’s relevant to all countries with testosterone-fuelled professional team sports that apparently encourage a sense of sexual entitlement -- Chris Maume, Independent

Krien finds no neat answers in Night Games, only grey areas, but it is the wisdom and balance of her writing that capitvates -- Simon Briggs, Daily Telegraph

Sobering and necessary -- Ben East, Metro

For every superstar, club CEO, boundary rider, bar-propper and park footballer, it should be mandatory reading., Sunday Age

[Krien] writes honestly and brilliantly. Night Games is a book that was begging to be written. Readers should exult that Krien got there first., Big Issue

One of the most incredible works of investigative non-fiction that I have ever read. Krien is nuanced and fiercely intelligent and every paragraph is addictive., Readings Monthly
