Watsonia: A Writing Life

Author(s): Don Watson

Literary Essays & Criticism

No other writer has journeyed further into the soul of Australia and returned to tell the tale...

Watsonia collects the fruits of a writing life. It covers everything from Australian bush humour to America gone berserk; from Don Bradman to Oscar Wilde; from Animal Farmto the Australian parliament. Wherever Watson turns his incisive gaze, the results are as illuminating as they are enjoyable.

Artfully arranged, Watsonia showcases the many sides of Don Watson- historian, speechwriter, commentator, humourist, nature writer and biographer.

It also features several previously unpublished lectures and a wide-ranging introduction by the author.

This comprehensive anthology - replete with wit, wisdom and diverse pleasures - is essential reading.
