Ned Kelly’s reputation as an outlaw is growing. To the masses he’s a folk hero, but to the Establishment he’s the most wanted man in the British Empire—by Royal decree the only person that everyone is permitted to kill. When the authorities bring in an army of police to catch him, Ned plans a showdown at Glenrowan, an event that will cement his status as the revolutionary hero of the Australian underclass.
Robert Drewe’s strikingly imaginative re-creation of the inner life of Ned Kelly, the National Hero and Devil Incarnate of the Antipodes, is written with brilliant clarity and impressionistic economy. It carries the reader into a dream world of astonishing and violent revelation, an entrancing and frightening landscape of murder, sexuality, persecution, robbery, vanity, politics and corruption.
