Gerald Murnane

Paperback $26.95 - Giramondo Publishing
Fiction - Published: 1/May/2012 - ISBN: 9781920882853

A fictionalised autobiography told in thirty sections, each of which begins with the memory of a book that has left an image on the writers mind. Murnane gives only clues to the books titles, recalling in the process a parade of great, popular, and forgotten authors. Three short pieces of fiction featuring the author as a young boy, a teacher and an old recluse, play on familiar themes in Murnane’s work – the anxieties and aspirations of a writing life and the absence of religious belief.
