Overview

After the Great War, Richard Lovat Somers, a writer, and Harriet, his wife, leave disillusioned Europe for Australia. There Somers falls into the company of charismatic fascist ‘Kangaroo’. The young writer struggles with his past and his personal ideology as he finds himself in a deadly tug-of-war between the mesmerising Kangaroo and the feisty communist Willies Struthers. With its astonishing descriptions of the bush ‘biding its time with a terrible ageless watchfulness’, and its free-form narrative, Kangaroo captivates and provokes.
