Gould's Book of Fish, Richard Flanagan
Flanagan is Tasmanian, very much so, and this book is one I have given to several TAs, with whom I have since had long discussions about what this book is about. I think I know. I have read it at least five times, but more discussions would still be wonderful—bring it on. It's a convict story, like so much Australian literature, but what a convict story, and what a ride!

Good going, Irishman, WOW! Like above, please read and come talk. This is another wild ride.

 

More to come. . .
