 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
 that I think will stay with me all my life.
     The novel’s narrator is Muldrew, a rear gunner on an American
 bomber flying missions over Japan towards the end of the war.
