Description - Fredy Neptune by Les Murray

Fredy Neptune is a verse novel, a classic of Australian writing that has been praised around the world. This stylish new edition contains a new afterword by Les Murray, 'How Fredy and I wrote Fredy Neptune'.Fredy Neptune involves the journeys of a man born on the north coast of New South Wales, a gentle, curious man of enormous physical strength who loses his ability to feel. His travels take him around the world, through Hitler's Germany, and cause him to witness some of the horrors of the twentieth century. The persistence of Fredy's decency is, among other things, a celebration of much that Les Murray associates with Australia.This is one of the key works by Australia's greatest poet.

Author Biography - Les Murray

Hungarian born Les developed his love of football after emigrating to Australia as a refugee in 1957. Watching a replay of the classic 1960 European Cup Final, Les' enthusiasm for the world game was launched and hasn't waned since. Following moderate success as a semi-pro player, Les also found time to indulge in his second love - rock and roll - as the lead singer in a very hip ensemble, known as 'The Rubber Band', during the 1970s. Les has been a journalist since 1971. In his years with SBS television he has played a major role in developing the distinctiveness of sport programming on the network, and was executive producer of all of SBS' major football broadcasts. Internationally respected, Les was named him one of Sydney's ten most influential people in sport by the influential French sports daily, L'Equipe. Since 2004 Les has served on FIFA's Committee for Ethics and Fair Play. Currently Les is Head of Sports and hosts SBS' nightly bulletin Toyota World Sport, The World Game on Sundays and the network's athletics coverage.
