Joe in the Andamans: And Other Fictocritical Stories
"At a dinner party in Sydney, the famous French philosopher Jacques Derrida (author of Margins of Philosophy), asked Stephen Muecke, "why the centre?" The search for answers to such philosophical questions has taken the author on many travels, from Newtown to Madagascar and, after reading a 1930s children's book to his son, to the Andaman Islands: "a place where boys' own adventures might still be possible, way off the usual tourist trail." This is a writing style full of surprises, propelled by cloudbursts of feelings as well as thoughts. It's a writing where reality comes to life and talks to us, tells its stories and puts its arguments." -- Description from publisher website.
