Synopsis: From the author of the beloved Barsetshire novels, a bracing tale of a rumbustious voyage abroad a "hell-ship." First American publication.

From the Publisher: "Trooper to the Southern Cross" is "the" unique novel among Angela Thirkell's many books. For in these surprising and fascinating pages, which were originally published in 1934 under the pseudonym "Leslie Parker," the modern chronicler of Barsetshire assumes the voice of an Australian army officer and relates an amusing, rough-and-tumble sea story about an eventful, post-World War I journey on a troop-carrying vessel deservedly labeled a "hell-ship." Thirkell's keen ear for dialogue, and her skillful use of her own first-hand experience of a voyage on a similarly rumbustious vessel, combine to create an amusing and spirited yarn.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Book Description Virago Modern Classics London, 1985. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. 2nd Edition. reprint paperback in good condition. There are no names, clean cream pages, tight binding with uncreased spine and clean stiff card covers. Published under the pseudonym of Leslie Parker to critical acclaim, this novel is based on Angela Thirkell's own experience of travelling to Australia on a troop ship and her years of living there (unhappily) with her second husband. It is one of Barry Humphries' favourite books. Please ignore abe's shipping estimate, based on a 1Kg book, as this weighs less and I will reduce. Bookseller Inventory # THI329
