AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'These stories range across Australia today. Warwick in The Soapbox tries to make sense of Australia’s cultural cringe. In Magpies the well-meaning Jeff resists intimacy, and The Town Halfway Across Australia sees Julius traverse the continent, only to find that as a white man, he is a stranger. Foxes introduces us to an ex-Nazi, seeking to escape from his past. In The Green Valiant we are reminded of the Vietnam War. These passionate, artful and emotionally candid stories show a country caught in its own trauma.'
