Grafton, 1989, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Good, First Edition
336 pages, last 2 blank. Maroon coloured boards with gilt writing on the spine. Illustrated dust wrapper, being reproduction of Sir Sidney Nolan's " Boy in a Township", with white and yellow writing on the front panel and backstrip. This is the gripping story of a boy's struggle to separate fact from fiction; of a family undone by refusing to face its darkest secrets; of a drought ridden outback Village under a spell of its own fear. There is humour here, and apocalypse, too; acts of love and acts of cruelty. The author was an editor of the controversial magazine OZ. Softening to the backstrip edges and to the top book corners. Bumping along the front fore edge of the front book panel. Browning textblock edges, pages and those slightly to the endpapers. Slight cocking of the spine with a few boxing spots to the front text edge. The dustwrapper is a little rubbed and the edges are somewhat crinkled. This is the first UK edition. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; Australia; ISBN: 0246134313. ISBN/EAN: 9780246134318. Inventory No: 0103563.
