Winner of the IMPAC Award and Booker Prize nominee In this rich and compelling novel, written in language of astonishing poise and resonance, one of Australia's greatest living writers gives and immensely powerful vision of human differences and eternal divisions.  In the mid-1840s a thirteen-year-old British cabin boy, Gemmy Fairley, is cast ashore in the far north of Australia and taken in by aborigines. Sixteen years later he moves back into the world of Europeans, among hopeful yet terrified settlers who are staking out their small patch of home in an alien place. To them, Gemmy stands as a different kind of challenge: he is a force that at once fascinates and repels. His own identity in this new world is as unsettling to him as the knowledge he brings to others of the savage, the aboriginal. "Breathtaking...To read this remarkable book is to remember Babylon well, whether you think you've been there or not." --The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.

David Malouf was born in 1934 in Brisbane, Australia. He attended Brisbane Grammar School and graduated from the University of Queensland. Malouf's first published work was "Interiors" in 1962. Since then, he has published eight poetry collections, eight novels, an autobiography and a play. He has also written the libretto for Richard Meale's opera, "Voss." He has been awarded the Prix Femina Etranger, the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and the Pascall Prize. David Malouf uses life in Australia as a major theme in his work, with much of his fiction recreating his childhood in Brisbane.
