We’ve created an Australian Classics book club, just for you – with special writerly guests each month.
Last year’s hugely popular Australian Literature 101 set the scene by introducing ten texts our experts deemed unmissable Australian reading.
This year, we invite you on a brand new, leisurely stroll through our national literature, as we guide you through rediscovered classics and much-loved favourites alike.
In this instalment, we’ll look at The Drover’s Wife by Murray Bail.
Martin Flanagan is the author of 13 books, including The Call, an imaginative reconstruction of the life of Tom Wills, the founder of Australian football, which was adapted into a stage play for Malthouse Theatre in 2004. (rodneyvc)
