He has created a wholly new kind of prose to embody his prophetic visions of truth and his fierce denunciations of modern society. John Colmer's study of the Nobel Prize winning Australian novelist is the first to survey all his published works....

Luckily we all come at books from a different perspective and I am very pleased I stumbled on this 677 page volume of letters written from 1919 to 1990.
