Glenn's columns will also feature in a forthcoming book on 'The best political writing of 2007' to be published by Melbourne University Press.

Glenn was also a contributor to the definitive book on John Howard's Prime Ministership, "The Howard Factor".

In 1997 he won a Walkley award for his coverage of the Thredbo landslide disaster. He was holidaying with his family in the ski lodge next door at the time. He is married with three children.
