Reader's note

A bright 1955 edition of The Shiralee by D'Arcy Niland in a colourful dust-jacket! This is the story of a rough, common young man brought up amongst the less fortunate classes of Sydney. He has the body of a powerful animal and the appetite of such not reserved entirely for food; but deep in him there is a certain integrity which becomes more and more implicit as his pilgrimage progresses. He is taciturn and says little; the small girl, Buster, the daughter he feels bound to take with him, says even less but both speak with a strange and touching eloquence as they come to life in Niland's strong, often beautiful prose.
