Description:

A novel about a high school band by Lowell Tarling with artwork by Martin Sharp.
 
You may finish school with no plans, no money, and no direction. But if all you want is to play guitar with your teeth, smash a Rickenbacker or grow your hair long - then being in a high school band could be the last thing you need… It is 1967. Tom is 18, and ready…
 
This novel combines the cunning wit of Lowell Tarling with the atmospheric pop art of the iconic Martin Sharp.It is the best of times. It is the worst of times. It is the age of wisdom. It is the age of foolishness. It is the age of The Who and the Beatles. It is the time of Dylan. It is the season of Light. It is the season of Darkness. Nobody is who they think they are. Everyone is whoever they want to be. It is the autumn of despair, the winter of discontent, the spring of hope. And the Summer of Love. We have everything before us. Everything is original. Everything borrowed. People come only in two types: those who ARE Rock and Roll and those who aint.
 
1967 - THIS IS IT! embraces the journey of Thomas Truscott - wannabee rock god and all round misfit as he careens from disaster to discovery in his last year of school, battling the establishment, prefects, the Vietnam war and most of all, himself.

Description:

Professor John Croucher gives an account of the first and continuing history of the first peoples to live in the region now known as New South Wales, as well as its history from the days of British settlement and its more recent history, of the waves of other immigrants who have made New South Wales their home. Each section in the book focuses on a different cultural or historical aspect which is examined thoroughly from the beginnings of British settlement. The complete development of the state is told, weaving through these various areas of focus, along with the important people and events. Remarkable pioneers have helped shape not only the state but the country as a whole and their voices, some coming to us via oral history, others via historical documents, make fascinating reading.

A Distant Time and Place

Frank Vincent

Hybrid Publishers

Description:

Growing up in the working-class waterfront suburb of Port Melbourne, Frank Vincent became aware very early of the impact of social and economic inequality. He went on to become a successful barrister practising in criminal law before being appointed to the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal. Throughout his career, which included a lengthy period as Parole Board Chair, he never lost his concern for victims and the marginalised in our society, especially its indigenous members. Yet this memoir is no hagiography. With modesty and wit, Vincent notes his own human fallibility and frailties, and writes with modesty and humour.
 
***
 
"Frank Vincent's memoirs illustrate why lawyers would enter courts to hear him speak – firstly as a barrister in murder trials, then as a Supreme Court Justice.
"His story is told with grace and humour, pointing out his closest brush to physical danger was from a cream sponge he felt was about to be thrown by a prisoner on learning his parole application was rejected.
"This book gives a rare insight into our court system from a master practitioner. For more than 50 years Frank was a champion of the people – this book shows he remains a champion bloke." – John Silvester

Aesthetics and the Divine
Engaging Artists, Fostering Religious Art
Shimon Dovid Cowen

A$9.99
Hybrid Publishers

Description:

"Rabbi Cowen's creative engagement with these contemporary artists reveals how spirituality can enhance the power of the visual image, the emotional persuasiveness of the literary text, and the neurological impact of music ..." - Mel Alexenberg, formerly Professor of Art at Columbia University
 
In the realm of contemporary aesthetic high culture, there are many painters, writers and composers of great talent, but few with deep religious knowledge and belief. In the realm of faith, there are many with deep belief and religious knowledge, but very few with developed great artistic talent. Is there some way of making good the absent but essential combination of artistic prowess and religious depth required to produce great religious artworks in the various artistic media?
 
In response to this question, this book addresses the theory and practice of engaging significant artists – not necessarily religiously learned or committed – to draw forth from them genuinely religious high art. After exploring the concept of the religious artwork, it documents three religious-creative encounters through which important religious artworks emerged, in the realms of painting, literature and music. It concludes with thoughts on the methodology and kinds of successful engagements between religion and aesthetics – with broader implications for education to religious art.

After the Ultimate Virus

Description:

In the wake of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the world learned some big lessons. But not enough. Life eventually returned to normal, affluence and profligate activity increased - it was The Best of Times. But then the gap between the Haves and the Have-Nots grew.
 
Finally, halfway through the 21st century urban riots, drone warfare and nuclear war, followed by the Ultimate Virus, wiped out the world's population - save a little colony on Australia's Bondi Beach, which sets about rebuilding a new world.
 
Written before the COVID-19 pandemic, in response to the conjecture of Australian Professor Huw Price, Head of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at Cambridge University, that a mega virus was one of the major existential threats facing our society, this is a story of a great love affair, political intrigue, danger and heroic - and mock-heroic - endeavour, as well as a warning of what could be in store for us all.

Beyond the Mirage
An Autobiography
Arthur W. Upfield

2020-04-24
A$7.99
ETT Imprint

(click here for links)

Description:

To observe a ridge of sandhills was to wonder what lay beyond them... Perhaps it was the sense of freedom, both physically and spiritually, the knowledge that should I want to look beyond the sandhills and peer beyond the mirage, there was nothing but my two legs and a water bag to prevent me...
As thousands did before me, and as men are still doing in these days, I asked for my cheque instead of orders one bright morning in May, and a week later an eager young man pushed a loaded bicycle out of Wilcannia.
 
Arthur Upfield's autobiography was written in 1937 but put aside during the intervening years of the Second World War. Now available for the first time, here is Upfield's own story of tramping Australia and developing his great crime novels featuring Bony, the first Aboriginal detective, alongside real desert characters like One-Spur Dick, Mr Pluto, Dead March Harry and the evil Snowy Rowles. Illustrated with photographs from Upfield's archive.

Description:

Young Fidelia Knight arrives in Melbourne in 1874, alone except for her treasured companion, Samuel Johnson; well, half of him.
 
To escape servitude, Fidelia hides each night in Bourke-street's renowned Coles Book Arcade. She loves words, you see, and wants to know them all.
 
What she overhears in Coles sets her on a path that will change the lives of everyone she meets, starting with Jasper Godwin, the hopelessly underqualified manager of the new Billings Better Bookstore.
 
Fidelia's thirst for knowledge is contagious. She tutors two orphan boys and two illiterate women, inspiring them to unlock their creativity; and her exploration of colonial Melbourne takes her to some unusual places.
 
Nothing daunts this diminutive genius, except the mystery of what really happened to her parents on the voyage from England.

Description:

When Inspector Bonaparte is called to the drought-stricken outback sheep station he finds that two men have been savagely beaten to death. Clues are scarce in this sun-baked, sand-blown country, but Bony's understanding of the bush and the people who live there - both black and white - leads him inexorably towards the killer…
 
When Upfield gets down to the point of interracial sexual relations, he in effect is writing on one of the topics closest to his heart. Here his picture is unusually poignant. Caught in the iron grip of separation from his kind, of loneliness, of sexual attraction, Eric Downer is a victim of life... - from The Spirit of Australia by Ray Browne.
