AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'1942 and the world is at war. Australia and its government look to events in Asia with alarm. Political reporter 'Paperboy' Tyson's relationship with Labor Prime Minister, Johnny Mulhall, gives him a privileged insight into the man's ambivalence to war. While the nation struggles to establish its role amidst the far-reaching events of the day, Mulhall finds himself strangely entangled in a personal dilemma no less weighty than the demands of his public role as a ruler in a cut-rate kingdom.'

A National (Diasporic?) Living Treasure : Thomas Keneally Paul Sharrad , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Le Simplegadi , November no. 14 2015; (p. 20-27)
Although Thomas Keneally is firmly located as a national figure, his international literary career and his novels’ inspection of colonial exile, Aboriginal alienation, and movements of people throughout history reflect aspects of diasporic experience, while pushing the term itself into wider meaning of the transnational.
