Among these books are Bring Larks and Heroes, which won the Miles Franklin award for the best Australian novel of 1967, The Survivor, which was the joint winner of the 1970 Captain Cook Literary Award, The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, which was on the short list for the Booker Prize in 1972, and Gossip From the Forest, runner-up for the Booker Prize in 1975. Thomas Keneally is married, with two daughters, and lives in Sydney. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
