The Plains: Text Classics

Murnane Gerald

Introduced by Wayne Macauley Winner, Patrick White Literary Award, 1999 Twenty years ago, when I first arrived on the plains, I kept my eyes open. I looked for anything in the landscape that seemed to hint at some elaborate meaning behind appearances.This is the story of the families of the plains – obsessed with their land and history, their culture and mythology – and of the man who ventured into their world. There is no book in Australian writing like Gerald Murnane’s The Plains.
