Rate this:
This book tells the life story of Joseph Furphy, author of the Australian classic, Such is Life. Drawing on a multitude of sources, this biography documents hitherto unknown aspects of Furphy's life, and recreates the circumstances of late-nineteenth century Australia from his perspective, throwing new light on the relationship between the author's life and his writing. Portraying Furphy as Christian Socialist, ardent nationalist, moralist, and dedicated writer, The Order of Things also presents a sympathetic and discerning picture of the man himself--his devotion to his family, his unhappy marriage, his stoicism, and his humor--vividly recreating the life of this remarkable man.
