The Blurb on The Place at Whitton by Thomas Keneally

Tom Keneally's first novel, The Place at Whitton, a psychological mystery, was published after his time in a seminary. Fifty years on, this anniversary edition is being released with a new author's note about the novel and fifty years of writing.



The Blurb on The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman
Emerging out of the depths of his own personal history, Adam sees, in a promising research topic suggested by an American World War II veteran, the beginnings of something that might just save him professionally and perhaps even personally. As these two men try to survive in early twenty-first-century New York, history comes to life in ways neither of them could have foreseen. Epic in scope, this is a remarkable feat of storytelling.
