              This is not a romance - I have too often faced the music of life to the tune of hardship to waste time in snivelling and gushing over fancies and dreams; neither is it a novel, but simply a yarn - a real yarn. Oh!

              The classic novel of convict Australia, For the Term of His Natural Life is a narrative of enormous power, but also great suffering and inhumanity. There is no attempt made to soften the truth of degradation and cruelty of the convict existence, yet the novel is filled with life ...and peopled with unforgettable characters: Frere, the magnificent barbarian; Sara Purfoy, aglow with colour and vitality, attracting men as moths to light; John Rex, the consummate villain... And woven through the story is the golden thread spun from the faith and hope of Sylvia, the innocent child who loves the luckless Rufus Dawes, condemned to transportation for life for a crime he did not commit. "First published in book form in 1874, For the Term of His Natural Life has been widely translated and adapted into film. It has appealed to successive generations of readers and is still regarded as Australia's most significant colonial novel.

              It's 1981 and Evie is sixteen. She has left school but can't find work, and her family has just moved into the run-down inner Sydney suburb of Newtown. Noel lives in the adjoining terrace house. He's fifteen, not taking school seriously and fed up with looking after his ancient b...ed-ridden grandmother. As a friendship grows between Evie and Noel, the past is set back in motion, and the events of the 1930s Depression era begin to play out in the high-unemployment times of the early 1980s, and the house again is the centre of the Sydney anti-eviction campaign of 1931. Based on historical fact, meticulously researched, The House that was Eureka is a critically acclaimed novel about a history we all share.

              Harley Savage is a large, rawboned, plain person with a ragged haircut and a white t-shirt coming unstitched along the shoulder. Douglas Cheeseman is a big-eared man who avoids his own reflection, and has bored his wife into leaving him. They are not the usual suspects for a burg...eoning romance.

Her subjects-childhood and school, marriage and loneliness, the cruelty of men and women-are rendered in a crisp, understated style, at once compassionate and unsentimental. This new selectio...n of twenty pieces from across five decades includes the acclaimed novella-length 'The Survivors' and the final appearance of Isobel Callaghan from I for Isobel.
