    Reprint. Signed by Author

    ‘Johnno’ is rightly considered an Australian classic. It is one of David Malouf’s finest novels, and a savagely honest appraisal of the malaise of white suburban masculinity in 1970s Australia. Dealing with cultural cringe, tall poppy syndrome and the stagnating influences of capitalism and postmodernism, it paints a picture of two very different but equally lost young men, whose intelligence and charisma is no shield against the societies in which they live and travel. To a lover of Malouf, a signed first edition of this landmark of Australian literature would be invaluable.
