These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Boss of Taroomba: Look inside the book: Over his very head, indeed, the red-bearded man was signalling maliciously to a youth who with coarse fat face and hands was mimicking the performer in the middle of the room; while the youngest man of the lot, who wore spectacles and a Home-bred look, giggled in a half-ashamed, half-anxious way, as though not a little concerned lest they should all be caught. ...Had he heard a conversation which took place in the station-yard later that night, but only a little later, and while the full moon was in much the same place, the piano-tuner might have gone to sleep instead of lying awake to flagellate his own meek spirit; though it is more likely that he would have lain quietly awake for very joy. About E. W. (Ernest William) Hornung, the Author: Hornung spent most of his life in England and France, but in December 1883 left for Australia, arrived in 1884 and stayed for two years where he worked as a tutor at Mossgiel station in the Riverina. 1 Although his Australian experience was brief, it influenced most of his literary work from A Bride from the Bush published in 1899, to Old Offenders and a few Old Scores, which was published after his death.

Arthur George. »Dieser Roman zeigt Julian Barnes auf dem Höhepunkt seines Könnens.« P.D. James Zwei Männer, geprägt vom ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert in Großbritannien, begegnen sich in einer entscheidenden und dramatischen Phase ihres Lebens: Arthur Conan Doyle, der Erfinder von Sherlock Holmes, und George Edalji, ein kleiner Provinzanwalt. Julian Barnes schildert sie auf faszinierende Weise vor dem Hintergrund ihrer Zeit. Arthur und George könnten unterschiedlicher nicht sein. Der eine, aus niederem schottischen Adel stammend, wird Augenarzt, dann ein erfolgreicher Schriftsteller und einer der berühmtesten Männer seiner Zeit. Der andere, braves Kind eines anglikanischen Dorfpfarrers indischer Herkunft, wird ein kleiner Rechtsanwalt in Birmingham. Beide sind sie zutiefst den Konventionen und Ehrvorstellungen ihrer Epoche verhaftet, Arthur leidet zudem unter einer schwierigen Liebesbeziehung. Ihre Wege kreuzen sich, als Arthur ein einziges Mal in seinem Leben in die Rolle des Sherlock Holmes schlüpft, um George zu helfen, der Opfer eines skandalösen, rassistisch motivierten Justizirrtums geworden ist. Das Verfahren wird wieder aufgerollt. Arthur gelingt es, Georges Ehre zu retten. Arthur & George stand wochenlang auf den Bestsellerlisten in England und den USA sowie auf der Shortlist für den Man Booker Prize 2005.

The Boss. In 2005, jockey Glen Boss achieved a racing record - three back-to-back Melbourne Cup triumphs on the legendary mare Makybe Diva. Yet less than four years earlier, this country boy from Beaudesert, Queensland, had suffered a catastrophic fall while racing in Macau, breaking his neck in two places and coming within a hair's-breadth of life in a wheelchair. Whilst the fractures in his spine repaired themselves, the lessons Boss drew from the accident turned him into a calmer, more accepting man than the feisty perfectionist he'd been before. This attitude made him an even better rider, and in the three seasons from 2004 to 2006 he had more Group One wins than any other jockey. The Boss is Glen's story. It's an extraordinary insight into the life and world of a top jockey - the adrenaline rush of speed, the awesome power of a thoroughbred, the incredible high of winning, and the very real dangers of the racetrack. Written with rare honesty and self-knowledge, it will appeal to every racing fan.

The Ayes Have It. ‘The Ayes Have It’ is a fascinating account of the Queensland Parliament during three decades of high-drama politics. It examines in detail the Queensland Parliament from the days of the ‘Labor split’ in the 1950s, through the conservative governments of Frank Nicklin, John Bjelke- Petersen and Mike Ahern, to the fall of the Nationals government led briefly by Russell Cooper in December 1989. The volume traces the rough and tumble of parliamentary politics in the frontier state. The authors focus on parliament as a political forum, on the representatives and personalities that made up the institution over this period, on the priorities and political agendas that were pursued, and the increasingly contentious practices used to control parliamentary proceedings. Throughout the entire history are woven other controversies that repeatedly recur – controversies over state economic development, the provision of government services, industrial disputation and government reactions, electoral zoning and disputes over malapportionment, the impost of taxation in the ‘low tax state’, encroachments on civil liberties and political protests, the perennial topic of censorship, as well as the emerging issues of integrity, concerns about conflicts of interest and the slide towards corruption. There are fights with the federal government – especially with the Whitlam government – and internal fights within the governing coalition which eventually leads to its collapse in 1983, after which the Nationals manage to govern alone for two very tumultuous terms. On the non-government side, the bitterness of the 1950s split was reflected in the early parliaments of this period, and while the Australian Labor Party eventually saw off its rivalrous off-shoot (the QLP-DLP) it then began to implode through waves of internal factional discord.
