From the winner of the Man Booker Prize. The collected short pieces of nonfiction from one of Australia's best novelists.

'And what do you do, Mr Faulkner?' asked Clark Gable after being introduced to William Faulkner at a party. 'I write,' replied Faulkner. 'And what do you do, Mr Gable?'

Collected here for the first time are the very best of Richard Flanagan's wide-ranging, free-wheeling writings on everything from directing film and writing novels to a near fatal kayak trip; from baking bread to bushfires to art to war; from Kosovar refugees on the run to Jorge Luis Borges to his celebrated essay on the rape of Tasmania's forests, credited as a key to halting Gunns' two billion dollar pulp mill.

Sparkling, moving and always surprising, this is exhilarating reading from one of Australia's best writers.
