"I've had a great life, and it all happened because I didn't plan any of it."-- Eugene Walter Eugene Walter was the best-known man you've never heard of. In his 76 years, he ate of "the ripened heart of life," to quote a letter from Isak Dinesen, one of his many illustrious friends. He savored the porch life of his native Mobile, Alabama, in the 1920s and '30s. He stumbled into the Greenwich Village art scene in late-1940s New York. He was a ubiquitous presence in Paris's expatriate cafe society in the 1950s, where he was part of the Paris Review at its inception. Perhaps most remarkably of all for a poor Southern boy, he spent the 1960s in Rome, where he participated in the golden age of Italian cinema-including a role in Fellini's 8 1?2-and entertained some of the most famous people in the world. As recorded by Katherine Clark toward the end of Walter's life, his story-enlivened with personal glimpses of luminaries from William Faulkner and Martha Graham to Judy Garland and Leontyne Price-is an eyewitness history of the heart of the last century and a pitch-perfect addition to the Southern literary tradition. Most of all, this sumptuous oral biography conveys the spirit and charm of a truly unique American who defied the odds and authority, embarked on life, and went wherever his fancy and whimsy led him. "Whenever I found myself in the presence of Eugene Walter, I thought that everyone's life could be turned into a work of art. His was. Eugene Walter was a prince of whimsy and magic, and he turned his daily world upside down and made it elfin, cat-haunted, and hilarious. He could snap his fingers, and art would fall out all over the place. Milking the Moon has perfect pitch and flawlessly captures Eugene's pixilated wonderland of a life. I am so grateful to Katherine Clark for the job she has done, for bringing this incredible man's story to the page with such wit, panache, and style. I love this book-I couldn't put it down "-Pat Conroy "Truman Capote lied to harm others; Eugene Walter, sometimes known as the other Capote, the good one, lied only to delight others."-Gore Vidal "Eugene Walter held the nearest thing to a salon; he was an unofficial reception committee and all roads led to him."-Muriel Spark "Eugene Walter is one of those personages who turn up in life and leave, well, an indelible impression in which all personal characteristics-manner, speech, dress, and so on- are memorably distinctive."-George Plimpton, from the Foreword
Shortlisted Prime Minister's Award and Age Book of the Year Awards, 2012 Black Saturday. February 7, 2009. Roger Wood is the cop on duty at Kinglake when the most devastating fire in the nation's history roars through the ranges onto his beat. His task is to defend his town against the colossus that threatens to destroy it. And, over the course of one nightmarish day, that is what he will do. Even at the risk of his own life. Even after he receives the dreadful phone call telling him his own wife and kids are caught on the front line of the inferno. Adrian Hyland is the award-winning author of Diamond Dove and Gunshot Road . He lives in St Andrews, north-east of Melbourne, and teaches at LaTrobe University. 'A masterpiece of storytelling...The central characters in this special book emerge as Victoria Cross heroes in the heart of a bush community.' Kerry O'Brien 'What sets Kinglake-350 apart is its strong, agile storytelling - particularly Hyland's skill for weaving together small, telling details with big-picture concerns like climate change, weather pattern complexity, the failings of fire management policy and Australia's historical relationship with fire...' Meg Mundell, Readings 'Every Australian, both rural and urban, should read this book. Adrian Hyland pulls no punches in describing the harrowing consequences of living on the planet's driest and most fire-prone continent, and his account of the disastrous Black Saturday fires is a story of courage, dread and fallibility that will never leave you.' Cate Kennedy 'I've been waiting for a writer to look Black Saturday in the eye ever since the flames died down and, finally, Adrian Hyland's done it. In this compelling and moving book, Hyland has captured the character of a town caught, quite literally, in a fireball.' Anna Krien 'Kinglake-350 is about more than Black Saturday. It's about families and communities, the vital nature of ecology and geology; it's about the genesis of life itself. And while there are too many deaths in this saddest of tales, for the lucky ones the outcome was redemption.' Lincoln Hall 'Adrian Hyland has found a path through the smoke and confusion to produce an informed account that brings tears to the eyes of the reader. He has woven a selection of experiences into a seamless and gripping narrative that shows the courage, uncertainty, tragedy and stupidity of that day. Although the causes and lessons of the fire were explored in the report by the royal commission, this book will be more widely read. And deservedly so.' Age Book of the Year Terrifying and moving Kinglake-350 leaves us with a visceral sense of a harrowing event.' Australian Gripping and deeply moving.' Adelaide Advertiser As in the best fiction these characters will stay with you.' Daily Telegraph
