About the Book
"A writer of astonishing gifts." —Publishers Weekly
"Smart, compassionate." —New York Times
Text Classics presents four key works from Thea Astley, including two never previously released in the United States.
Two decades after a massacre of local Aboriginal people, the former residents of a Queensland town reunite to celebrate the prosperity of their community. But not everyone wants to celebrate. A reckoning with oppression, guilt and the weight of the past.
Thea Astley (1925–2004) won Australia's prestigious Miles Franklin Literary Award four times. She remains one of the most distinctive and influential Australian novelists of the twentieth century.
