The Four-Legged Lottery

“The Four-Legged Lottery shows that Hardy has lost none of his skill.  By an ingenious plot construction, he takes the reader into two worlds at once – the cold narrow bitter world of jail, and the careless, warm-blooded but corrupt world of the race track.  The story moves to a tragic climax of tremendous dramatic impact.
Malcolm Muggeridge recently described Hardy as ‘a very Australian Australian’, and nowhere are Australia and the Australian character described so vividly as in Hardy’s novels, short stories and plays.”
