ASIO opened a file on writer Frank Moorhouse when he was 17.  Now in his 70s, Moorhouse has penned Australia Under Surveillance, opening his own file on the agency that puts a spotlight on the Government's increasing intrusion into our privacy.

The paradox is an old one: is a secret agency needed for our safety as a democracy?  If so, how does a democracy manage a secret agency without losing control over it?

Join award winning author Frank Moorhouse when he shares his findings with Matthew Lamb, Editor of Island and The Review of Australian Fiction.
