dc.description.abstract This, the first major study of Xavier Herbert’s literary journey, is a superb work of scholarship. It is written with passion, good humour and a clear acknowledgment of the faults, both personal and literary, of its subject. Sean Monahan is an enthusiastic admirer of "Poor Fellow My Country" (1975). According to Monahan, it is not only the quintessential Australian novel, but also ‘one of the great novels of world literature’ — an enthralling yarn as well as a symbolic vision of the difficult path to racial reconciliation. Above all, he says, it is an illuminating picture of a whole culture. en
