Timely Reminders. "The Sundowners" by Jon Cleary, "My Love Must Wait" by Ernestine Hill, "The Treatment and the Cure" by Peter Kocan and "The Giraffe's Uncle" by Les Robinson. [review]
As Harpercollins continues to release this welcome series of Australian reissues, it's especially pleasing to see them including less well-known, even long-forgotten, titles. While Webby had read none of these latest offerings, she did at least know something about three of the authors. Les Robinson, however, was almost a complete mystery. 'Almost' because Webby had a vague memory of one of his stories being included in an anthology she once lectured on. Obviously, it did not impress her enough to seek out more of his work. Nor would it have been easy to find, since, unlike the other three titles, "The Giraffe's Uncle" had never been reissued since its first printing, in 1933, by the Macquarie Head Press, a firm now as forgotten as the books it published.
