And What Do You Do, Mr Gable?

Author(s): Richard Flanagan

Other Authors | Australian authors

'And what do you do, Mr Faulkner?' asked Clark Gable after being introduced to William Faulkner at a party. 'I write,' replied Faulkner. 'And what do you do, Mr Gable?' Collected here for the first time are the very best of Richard Flanagan's wide-ranging, free-wheeling writings on everything from directing film and writing novels to a near fatal kayak trip; from baking bread to bushfires to art to war; from Kosovar refugees on the run to Jorge Luis Borges to his celebrated essay on the rape of Tasmania's forests, credited as a key to halting Gunns' two billion dollar pulp mill. Sparkling, moving and always surprising, this is exhilarating reading from one of Australia's best writers.
