Part family tragedy, part existential comedy, Marsh says it’s a warts-and-all account of a sissy boy’s journey through rugged terrain in West Australia during the 1950s, and his painful journey towards reconciliation.
Novelist Amanda Lohrey (recipient of the prestigious Patrick White Award, 2012) says of the book, ‘More than a portrait of growing up gay, it captures the wild search for meaning of an entire generation.’
Mr Marsh is also the author of Mr Isherwood Changes Trains, a study of the British expatriate writer, Christopher Isherwood. In 2011 he edited the collection Speak Now: Australian perspectives on same-sex marriage. More recently he published a memoir extract titled ‘A Touch of Silk’ in Griffith Review #42, and another, ‘Please Explain’, in GR #44 e-book edition.
