Citation: Dooley, Gillian 2005. Review of "The Garden Book" by Brian Castro. 'Writers’ Radio, Radio Adelaide', recorded 23 September 2005.
Abstract: "The Garden Book" is the tragic story of Swan, the daughter of the first Chinese Ph.D. in Australia, a formidably erudite man who, in the xenophobia of the great depression years, is unable to keep even a job as a county school teacher and falls into a terminal decline. Swan, also highly educated, marries an Australian autodidactic misfit, Darcy Damon, former prisoner and sailor, who had encountered opium in his travels in China.
