Description

No other writer has journeyed further into the soul of Australia and returned to tell the tale ... Watsoniacollects the fruits of a writing life. It covers everything from Australian bush humour to America gone berserk; from Don Bradman to Oscar Wilde; from Animal Farmto the Australian parliament. Wherever Watson turns his incisive gaze, the results are as illuminating as they are enjoyable. Artfully arranged, Watsoniashowcases the many sides of Don Watson- historian, speechwriter, commentator, humourist, nature writer and biographer. It also features several previously unpublished lectures and a wide-ranging introduction by the author. This comprehensive anthology - replete with wit, wisdom and diverse pleasures - is essential reading.
