Remembering Babylon : Winner of the International Dublin Literary Award 1996 Paperback
by David Malouf
A searing and magnificent picture of Australia at the moment of its foundation, with early settlers staking out their small patch of land and terrified by the harsh and alien continent.
Focusing on the hostility between the early British inhabitants and the native Aborigines, Remembering Bablyon tells the tragic and compelling story of a boy who finds himself caught between the two worlds.
Shot through with humour, and poetic intensity, Malouf's epic novel of epic scope yet it is simple, compassionate and universal.
