Introduced by Christos Tsiolkas
There can be few other nations which are less certain than Australia as to what they are and where they are.

Brilliant, witty, scathing, The Australian Ugliness is the classic postwar account of Australian society, how we live in the environments we create, and the consequences of our failure to think about how we live.
