Sex and Violence in the Black Australian Novel, Adam Shoemaker , single work criticism
This chapter looks at five novels by three Aboriginal authors that deal with the themes of sexual and cultural violence in urban Aboriginal communities: Wacvie (1977) by Faith Bandler, Wild Cat Falling (1965), Long Live Sandawarra (1979) and Doctor Wooreddy's Perscription for Eduring the Ending of the World (1983) by Colin Johnson, and The Day of the Dog (1981) by Archie Weller. All of these novels directly, perceptively and disconcertingly hold a mirror up to European violence, sexual jealously, physical brutality and authoritarianism.
