Product description

Title: Blue

Author: Pat Grant

'Blue' evokes the world of an Australian seaside childhood so powerfully you can almost smell the tomato sauce. 

But Pat Grant is after something more than mere nostalgia. In 'Blue' he digs deep into the Australian psyche and uncovers the story of unfamiliar boats washed up on sun - drenched shores, bringing new worlds and unwelcome change. It's a story as old as Captain Cook and as current as next year's refugees. Best of all, Grant is smart enough to avoid simplistic polemic, choosing instead to carefully probe the painful complex ambivalence at the heart of Australia's relationship with its past, present and future.

Dylan Horrocks
