              'Capricornia will always be one of the greatest of Australian novels, a defining work in the search for what it is, or was, to be Australian.' Australian Book Review Spanning three generations, Capricornia tells the story of Australia's north. It is a story of whites and Aborigin...es and Asians, of chance relationships that can form bonds for life, of dispossession, murder and betrayal. In 1904 the brothers Oscar and Mark Shillingsworth, clad in serge suits and bowler hats, arrive in Port Zodiac on the coast of Capricornia. They are clerks who have come from the south to join the Capricornian Government Service. Oscar prospers, and takes to his new life as a gentleman. Mark, however, is restless, and takes up with old Ned Krater, a trepang fisherman, who tells him tales of the sea and the islands, introduces him to drink, and boasts of his conquests of Aboriginal women - or 'Black Velvet', as they are called. But it is Mark's son, Norman, whose struggles to find a place in the world embody the complexities of Capricornia itself. 'My Capricornia is a hymn book written in adoration of Australia ...the Land of the Unshackled Southern Cross, the Australian earth itself, out of a passionate love of which alone can a true Australian Nation grow.

              Xavier Herbert was a prolific and entertaining letter writer. Although many of his letters survive, few have been published. They reveal a reclusive and deeply insecure man who relied on mail as a lifeline and a way of drawing attention to himself. At another level the letters sh...ow a concern for Aborigines.
