Inhaltsangabe: By the author of "Johnno, An Imaginary Life", "Harland's Half Acre" and "Fly Away Peter", this novel concentrates on five decades of precarious survival not only in wartime but in the no less testing peacetime. This novel was awarded the 1991 Commonwealth Writers Prize for best book.
Rezension: "It is this characteristic opposition which makes The Great World a truthful portrait of Australia. Sufferings and wrongs abound, but there is no dullness." Independent "An example of how fiction may still be individual, honest and humanly truthful. Malouf's great talent is precisely for unmasking the epic or world-historical - for finding the human backing to history's all reflecting mirror" The Times "Lucid and accessible. His most ambitious book so far" Guardian "A truthful portait of Australia" Independent on Sunday "A book of great stature with moral force and moral truth" Times Literary Supplement
