Praise for Another Country

‘The astonishing thing about Another Country is not how often Rothwell is defeated by the difficulty of reconciling two radically different ways of seeing, it is how tantalisingly close he comes to pulling it off … To these accounts, Rothwell brings all his considerable descriptive and analytic skills to bear.’ —Geordie Williamson, Australian

‘Rothwell is a stylist of talent … his style seems peculiarly suited to the Territory, a place of grand hopes and failures, full of the “sweet bite” of nostalgia. His portraits of Aboriginal artists and elders have this same elegiac, haunting tone. He is acutely sensitive to the sadness in Aboriginal art …’ —Stephen Gray, Sydney Morning Herald


‘This book represents a substantial journalistic inquiry. It deserves to be read because it goes so far beyond the average Australian’s comprehension of their own country.’ —Martin Flanagan, the Age


‘Rothwell writes vividly about characters of the Outback and … picks his way deftly through the maze of small-town politics to the big picture of 360-degree horizons.’ —Tim Lloyd, Advertiser


‘Subtle, elegant and disciplined.’ —Nicholas Jose, Australian Book Review
