Pick of the Day and Pick of the Week

Nice to see the Keneally abridgement being chosen as Pick of the Day by The Guardian and other newspapers. An extract was also repeated on Radio 4’s “Pick of the Week” programme.

I note that the book itself is getting mixed reviews – which is as it should be. It’s a curious hybrid of harrowing memories and self-regarding anecdotes. Poldek is the book’s real star; not Keneally.
