Although a newbie to this website, I have noticed a lack of comments on Australian writers. Bryce Courtenay, Nick Earls, Di Morrissey, Thomas Keneally, David Malouf or even classic Patrick White deserve a mention, too. Maybe we should start an Aussie thread!
I look forward to reading a lively CmcC book review. Happy reading!
I can see why CmcC likes Caiseal Mor. Not only amazing stories but a very special life. You two will be able to chat about him over a cuppa!!
You will be pleased to know I've dusted off my paperback copy of Colleen McCullough's "The First Man in Rome" (1990) and will re-read it
And I'm enjoying "The First Man In Rome" the second time around, older and wiser

At the moment I've several books on-the-go but a friend just loaned me Colleen McCullough’s third, and newest, novel in her Carmine Delmonico series “Naked Cruelty”. I found the opening chapter too explicit for me and skipped ahead. Somehow I don’t think I’ll feel comfortable reading this book. Plus my friend said she was let down by the ending.
