Easily the finest Australian Writer around! And one of the very few authors whom it could be said were influential of any era throughout history. One of the worlds best half-dozen writers at this point in time without doubt -and the most influential.

From black books comes a powerful memoir of a child's recollections of growing up in a gold mining town. A must read family drama highly recommended written by an elephant in the room who few were aware of, even his friends and family. A really great read. A remarkable tragicomedy highly recommended to put on your top shelf collection.

"Being an Englishman with a distinct lack of taste for the general stereotype of your typical sports-loving boorish Australian, I must say I undertook the reading of this book with a certain amount of trepidation. To my surprise it surpasses anything by any other writer I have read so far [at least within the last five or so years]. And written by an 'aussie'. It is a fine thing then to find out that this nation of the sports obsessed buffoon actually has at its core a much richer life behind the ugly stereotype. Your book reveals these hidden depths of a nation far too well known for its sporting achievements at the expense of other more nuanced options. Beautiful."

The old out-back town of Kalgoorlie has never before been so richly-strangely or so poignantly transcribed by way of prose as it undoubtedly deserves to be, and indeed has been so done in this wonderful memoir of a childhood once lived! -The Age

-"Powerful. Compelling. Great prose, Great story-telling abilities, Dramatic. Complex and acutely intelligent are the words best used to convey the breadth and majesty of this undoubted classic!" -Carey Holbourn-Armfield, editor of Atlantic Times Monthly.

A memoir headed for the best seller list about a largely uneducated young single mom struggling to raise a family in an old rough gold town.

Biographie de l'auteur

Born in 1967 in the town of Kalgoorlie 300 miles east of the lovely although very insular and nepotistic city of Perth in the great crony's only 'British, Christian and forever loyal to the Queen/big houses and giant sized four-wheel drives' state of Western Australia. A state mainly run for and by the mineral resource industry/lobby and where if you don't have the right connections you go absolutely no-where and back! Whether this be in the arts, the sciences, the medical profession, business, politics, media and journalism. And the wonderful city of Perth itself is crony central although it loves to shout out to the entire world what 'nice' urban-suburban, democratic people they really are. They are still however nanny-state, reactionary's of the first order. Apart from that it is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet -that there's no denying and when its inhabitants start to realize this and stop being so stupidly consumerist-driven, less insular, less hostile & negative toward its most intelligent and creative spirits it may hopefully in time become to be more than just beautiful on the eye, it might become also a more divergent home of creativity with a little more intellectual depth and nuance just the way it was meant to be in its now long since golden era of the sixties when it offered so much to those seeking intellectual progression as well freedom and wild open spaces. http://www.saatchiart.com/profiles/portfolio/id/617480
