First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 15.5cm, 330pp. Signed by David Malouf to a bookplate on the title page. Every city, town and village has its memorial to war. Nowhere are these more eloquent than in Australia, generations of whose young men have enlisted to fight other people's battles - from Gallipoli and the Somme to Malaya and Vietnam. In The Great World David Malouf gives a voice to that experience. Ranging over seventy years of Australian life, from Sydney's teeming King's Cross to the tranquil backwaters of the Hawkesbury River, it is a remarkable novel of self-knowledge and lost innocence, of survival and witness. Condition: This copy is in very good condition. There is some tanning to the pages but they are clean and the binding is firm. The dustwrapper has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve. N° de ref. de la librería 005872
Sinopsis: By the author of "Johnno, An Imaginary Life", "Harland's Half Acre" and "Fly Away Peter", this novel concentrates on five decades of precarious survival not only in wartime but in the no less testing peacetime. This novel was awarded the 1991 Commonwealth Writers Prize for best book.
Críticas: "It is this characteristic opposition which makes The Great World a truthful portrait of Australia. Sufferings and wrongs abound, but there is no dullness." Independent "An example of how fiction may still be individual, honest and humanly truthful. Malouf's great talent is precisely for unmasking the epic or world-historical - for finding the human backing to history's all reflecting mirror" The Times "Lucid and accessible. His most ambitious book so far" Guardian "A truthful portait of Australia" Independent on Sunday "A book of great stature with moral force and moral truth" Times Literary Supplement
