'Diet can be a problem at times in the remote Australian bush - especially when the main course begins to talk about the food.' (p.110)


  • Editor's note: 'Until very recently Australia, rather than Africa, has been the Dark Continent, at least literarily speaking. Its people have been too busy pioneering and getting settled to take time out for art. But in very recent years things have been happening Down Under which indicate that something new is about to be added to the world's cultural pattern. If 'Carney Jim' is a tipoff we hope it's a flood.'
