Journal Entry 1 by xtrdnry from Parkdale, Victoria Australia on Friday, July 16, 2021
Brought back to Australia by the death of his father, Dante is sorting through his father's belonging when he comes across a photograph of Johnno, a long-time friend. The photograph stirs up a lifetime of memories for Dante, leading him to finally set Johnno's story--which has haunted him for years--on paper. An outrageous character of legendary proportions, Johnno is brought top life in all his complexity, beginning with his days at Brisbane Grammar School, when he and Dante first become friends, to the days they spend together in Paris, Johnno's inexplicable rages and periodic transformations are recounted until we come to know him--without ever quite understanding him. Daring, impossible, and unpredictable, Johnno is a fascinating character. His shocking behavior awes some, annoys others, and provokes a good many more. Above all, though, he is thoroughly unforgettable.

Journal Entry 4 by wingmarmee463wing at Templestowe, Victoria Australia on Saturday, November 6, 2021
The writing was poignantly sad and filled with subtle yearning for things that never were and for things that can never be. David Malouf wonderfully captured the lure of home, the need to escape it and then that inexplicable feeling upon returning. An all round emotional read...
