9780099273837: Harland's Half Acre

Born on a poor dairy farm in Queensland, Frank Harland's life is centred on his great artistic gift, his passionate love for his father and four brothers and his need to repossess, through a patch of land, his family's past. The story spans Frank's life; from before the First World War, through years as a swaggie in the Great Depression and Brisbane in the forties, to his retirement to a patch of Australian scrub where he at last takes possession of his dream.

Harland's Half Acre tells how a man sets out to recover the land his ancestors discovered and then lost and how, in fulfilment, this vision becomes a new reality.

Review:

"A powerful, impressive book" ( Observer)

"David Malouf is one of Australia's most esteemed writers... Malouf often works on a broad canvas, portraying places, people and events in the panoramic context of history... [and] evoking the elusive interior worlds of his characters' perceptions" ( Los Angeles Times)

"[A] remarkable book, in which the realist and the dreamer are finally and excitingly fused" ( New York Times)

"A meditation, in the form of a novel, on the connection between life and art, by a talented Australian writer" ( Washington Post)

Book Description:

'David Malouf is a fine writer - his novels conjure up a whole society and its complex past' - Sunday Telegraph
