Today on Books+ - a substantial pile of Australian fiction. At the base, a novel from the 1930s, Seaforth Mackenzie's The Young Desire It, discussed by David Malouf, then a memoir of literary influence as Gabrielle Carey revisits the writer Randolph Stow. And balancing a the top of the pile, Thomas Keneally's new novel Shame and the Captives. And finally Australian poet Maria Takolander takes us to her parents' Finish homeland.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
