If you were to ask any long-term library worker at Nowra, they
would vouch for the fact that I have haunted the place for the past
30 years. ‘The cat with the striped shirt, beret and long black tail?
Yeah, he’s a ﬁxture around here.’ As an unrepentant ﬁction reader,
I have trawled those shelves with the efﬁciency of a Japanese long
line ﬁshing boat. Some illuminatory truths have been revealed to
me tucked away in novels and biographies. Often a reader will walk
out to Berry Street with a stack of books like an armful of ﬁrewood,
not knowing that the innocent looking pile contains a virtual stick of
dynamite. This is the joy of the library afﬁcianado.
I recently had such an experience with a novel by James Dickey,
To the White Sea. Having read his spine chilling hillbilly murder story
Deliverance and being familiar with his poetry from the sixties, I piled
this book onto the woodheap with no undue expectations. When I
got around to reading it, I was launched on a white knuckle journey
