Oh, how I just do wish I could write a review of ITHACA in my MIND by Peter Temple, as purchased through Amazon. I have something of a fixation on the work of this great Australian author, but I do also prefer my books in print, and a kindle edition is the only one being sold by Amazon. At 82 years of age a person is entitled to a personal preferance I believe. Or at any age for that matter.
However if I had read it, I would have given this novella five stars with no hesitation and urged all reading this review to also purchase the as yet 4 novels in the (not connected) Jack Irish series. They are outstanding, and for me the films do not do them justice. Silly question: why is it taking Peter Temple so long to write the fifth in the series? You tend to get a bit nervous about these things when you are 82!
By the way, The Broken Shore and Truth are brilliant books also, but careful - you could well find yourself fixated too!
