AbstractHistoryArchive Description

If the textual space allotted to the child in the novels of Tasmanian writer Christopher Koch shrinks away, the importance this author grants to this literary figure is not the least diminished ... The respective childhoods of Francis Cullen and Richard Miller - the protagonists of The Boys in the Island and The Doubleman - overlap in their peculiarities. Remaining aloof in their ivory tower, creators of imaginary worlds which respectively tap into a psychiatric pathology and into the fantastic, these children try to construct themselves a sui generis identity. (Author's abstract)
