9781860461613: Strandloper (Harvill Panther)

Based on the true story of William Buckley, an 18th-century man from rural England, this unique novel begins with a young William preparing for the annual festival known as Shick-Shack Day. William has been chosen as the village's Shick-Shack—an ancient fertility figure—but when the local landowner discovers the celebration in the church, William is arrested, tried, and banished to Australia. Arriving in the strange continent, he escapes and wanders for more than a year before he is discovered by a group of Aborigines who believe him to be Murrangurk, the great hero, lawgiver, and healer of their people. Later William is spotted by English colonialists, granted a full pardon, and allowed to return to England where me must encounter the life he left behind.

Review:

"A work of terrible beauty" -- Nicci Gerard * Observer * "A remarkable feat of literary imagination" -- Stephen Amidon * Sunday Times * "Strandloper's vision is cosmic and as elusive as a rainbow... The ending gathers the words into a powerful cry for wisdom that recognises the ineffable" -- Rosemary Sorensen * Sydney Morning Herald *
