CEF Ambassador, The Hon Tim Fischer AC, has generously committed to donating a percentage of the proceeds from sales of his latest book, Holy See, Unholy Me, to assist our work in rural Australia.

As the first Australian Ambassador to the Holy See, Tim found himself in the singular world of Vatican diplomacy where, even more than most diplomatic circles, the right word in the right ear is an essential art form – and where the person sitting next to you at dinner could be Colonel Gadafi or the Pope.

Armed with the skills he learned as an activist politician – and with his trusty black Akubra – Tim learned to navigate this strange new world and has lived to tell the tale!

Holy See, Unholy Me is published by Harper Collins and is available through ABC Bookshops and www.booktopia.com.
