The Secret River Book Description:

A life of petty crime and poverty on the streets of 19th-century London sentences William Thornhill--along with his wife and children--to exile in the colonial outpost of Australia. But among the convicts of New South Wales there is a whisper of the possibility of freedom, away from Sydney and up the Hawkesbury River, for those who dare to stake a claim. In a richly layered epic that recalls such international modern classics as The True History of the Kelly Gang, Kate Grenville tells the heart- renching story of a family in exile. Sweeping across the 19th century, from the teeming banks of the Thames in London to the hardscrabble frontier settlement of Sydney, Australia, The Secret River sets us down in an unforgiving land and masterfully confronts us with the brutal price of colonization.

This is the first published collection of critical essays on the work of Kate Grenville, one of AustraliaOCOs most important contemporary writers. Grenville has been acclaimed for her novels, winning numerous national and international prizes including the Orange Prize for Fiction and the Commonwealth WritersOCO Prize. Her novels are marked by sharp observations of outsider figures who are often under pressure to conform to societyOCOs norms. More recently, she has written novels set in AustraliaOCOs past, revisiting and re-imagining colonial encounters between settlers and Indigenous Australians.This collection of essays includes a scholarly introduction and three new essays that reflect on GrenvilleOCOs work in relation to her approach to feminism, her role as public intellectual and her books on writing. The other nine essays provide analyses of each of her novels published to date, from the early success of LilianOCOs Story and Dreamhouse to the most recently published novel, The Lieutenant . Her work has been the subject of some debate and this is reflected in a number of the essays published here, most particularly with regard to her most successful novel to date, The Secret River . This intellectual engagement with important contemporary issues is a mark of GrenvilleOCOs fiction, testament to her own analysis of the vital role of writers in uncertain times. She has suggested that OC writers have ways of going into the darkest places, taking readers with them and coming out safely.OCO This volume attests to GrenvilleOCOs own significance as a writer in a time of change and to the value of her novels as indices of that change and in OC lighting dark places.OCO"
