Description - Man of Letters by David Foster

Man of Letters is the third and final volume in the Dog Rock trilogy, completing David Foster's comic vision of a small rural town in New South Wales as over fifty years it gradually succumbs to economic imperatives, as witnessed from the perspective of the postman D'Arcy D'Oliveres. In his final appearance, the intrepid D'Arcy has a mystery to solve that involves a local musician, a stamp of the realm, a dodgy personalised numberplate and a retired sergeant of police now turned student of semiotics. Man of Letters is a very funny book from the writer the Manchester Guardian described as the worthy successor to Flann O'Brien. David Foster is one of Australia's best known and most respected novelists. In addition to writing twelve other novels, including the Miles Franklin Award winning The Glade Within the Grove (1997), he has worked intermittently for Australia Post over the past forty years, as a postman, relief postman and mail contractor in both the ACT and rural NSW.
