“Set in Sydney and the south-eastern coast of new South Wales in the 1920s, kangaroo is the story of how a visiting Englishman became involved with an underground, right-wing, political organisation.
Although Lawrence’s account is fictional, such an organisation did exist in the 1920s and the story is a rare insight into a little known part of Australia’s political history.
It is an intriguing novel in which Lawrence’s ambivalent feelings for Australia and Australians are bound up with his themes of personal power and conflicts within individuals and relationships.”
