Notes

  • Dedication : 'To Frank Moorhouse for those days'
  • Epigraph : 'All these people that you mention/ Yes I know them, they're quite lame/ I had to rearrange their faces/ And give them all another name' [Bob Dylan - from Desolation Row]
  • Publisher's note : The Phallic Forest collects Michael Wilding's stories about sex - the ones that could never be collected before. The title story was made into a short movie and its screening at the Melbourne Film Co-op caused raids and prosecution. It was one of the two pieces they cut from his first book.

    Nation Review dropped another for its Queensland and West Australian readers. Others appeared in Man, Chance International, Batchelor and Tharunka. Banned, censored, cut and mutilated when they were first written, they are all collected here complete and unabridged.
