Foreword

This saga is the nicest, most fantastic, touching story you’ll ever read about  near death experience, gross wastage of public resources, and mass paranoia.

Everything, in fact, that makes life worth living.

Both shocking and poignant, this candid portrait of an Australian educationist combines elements of autobiography, humour and drama.

It is a  epic story of his grooming,life and work.

Thematically layered, it ranges widely over politics,culture, ideology,history  and love.

It  represents an earnest moral inquiry distinguished by offbeat humor and magical social realism.

With an unfailing eye for place, décor, costume, and gesture, your man glides his keyboard through tangles of memories to evoke joys and horrors with a similar sense of wonder.

He  reminds us that the personal and the political cannot be safely untangled, that we must position science and politics next to love and procreation.

His world is peopled by competing forces: some constructive, others destructive, all determined to shape his destiny.

He  reminds us that the personal and the political cannot be safely untangled, that we must position science and politics next to love and procreation.

Journeying through numerous adventures, this everyman  encounters an array of fascinating characters and many splendoured situations.

Against a backdrop of epochal assets grabbing, the narrative is  punctuated with memorable set-pieces.

It is a fresh, affectionate and minutely observed account of life in the global village which readers can readily assume as part of their heritage.
