Description: THE PLAYMAKER
From the jacket:
"It was the outermost prison on the planet, home to English Army outcasts and the convict rogues they whipped, cajoled, and seduced into an unholy order. It was the land of lightning flashes, where ghosts of hanged felons danced in the morning mist.
It was Australia, 200 years ago, the scene of this lusty and altogether brilliant new novel by Thomas Keneally, author of Schindler's List. Inspired by the letters and journals of Australia's founders, published to coincide with the bicentennial of the first fleet that set off from England for the land down under in 1787, The Playmaker tells the story of Lieutenant Ralph Clark, who is assigned to direct a play, The Recruiting Officer, featuring a cast of the very same prisoners--the unruliest band of reprobates since Moll Flanders--he is there to supervise."
Author: Thomas Keneally
Condition: Very good, I'd say. This is an ex-library copy with a card pocket on the first page and a library stamp on the title page. The dust jacket is lightly scuffed with a library sticker on the spine. There are tape remnants on the boards.
