David Ireland

Three times Miles Franklin award-winning novelist David Ireland first made his mark on the Australian literary scene in the 1970s.

In the words of the Australian's literary editor, Stephen Romei, his 'novels of urban, industrial, blue-collar Australia' are 'full of masculinity and sex and violence and hopeless lives but compassionate and wise and funny'. Now aged 89, Ireland is publishing his first poetry book.
