Johnno by David Malouf

Book Description

Johnno is a typical Australian who refuses to be typical. Seen through the eyes of the narrator, he is a figure of legendary proportions. His disorderly presence can disturb the staleness of gothic Brisbane, or destroy the tranquillity of a Greek landscape. But what is the truth about Johnno? Semi-autobiographical, the novel perfectly captures the ragged modernisation of Brisbane and the sense of a generation locked in combat with the elusive Australian Dream.
