Gerald Murnane talks about ‘The Barley Patch’

This week I finally got around to listening to Gerald Murnane talking about The Barley Patch, his first book for 14 years, from the ABC Book Show (October 12). It’s a fascinating insight into the intricate symbology of Murnane’s ‘fiction’: race colours, grasslands, the plains, marbles, meaning within meaning.

The conversation is still online at the ABC for downloading HERE
