John Safran

John Safran is a writer and filmmaker who always gets in too deep for his own good. His debut book, Murder in Mississippi, won the Ned Kelly Award for best true crime. His follow up, Depends What You Mean by Extremist, found him lost among radicals and was shortlisted for the Australian Book Industry Awards. His wild and hilarious documentaries, such as ‘John Safran vs God’ and ‘Jedis & Juggalos’, play fire on the outer edges of religion and have received accolades from the Australian Film Institute and Rose d’Or Festival. Puff Piece: How Philip Morris set vaping alight (And burned down the English language) is his latest book.
