Based on Murnanee(tm)s own early years growing up in the Victorian country town ofBendigo, Tamarisk Row is an unsparing evocation of an impoverished Catholicchildhood in the late 1940s. Originally published in 1974, and out of print for almost twenty years, Tamarisk Row is Murnanee(tm)s first novel, and in many respects his masterpiece, not only because of its rich social tapestry and its evocation of the Australian landscape, but because it does magical things with language, its long sinuous sentences capturing the movements of consciousness with a suppleness unmatched in our writing. For this reason, the novel remains as fresh and vital when read today, as when it first appeared.
