"Silence is an exquisite, poignant collection of 'fictions' by one of Australia's finest writers. Each piece has its own startling imagery. This is a book that constantly surprises with its echoes of famous voices, and where the astonishing breadth of material - historical, personal, imagined - is held together by its central theme and by a web of subtle connections./br/br Rodney Hall is one of Australia's finest writers. He has won the Miles Franklin Award twice for Just Relations and The Grisly Wife and many of his novels and poems have been published internationally. His acclaimed memoir popeye never told you was published in 2010. He lives in Melbourne."
Hall's historical re-enactments and his needle-sharp characterisations are like a finely crafted picture, which please from a distance yet is all the more delightful when you see the exquisite detail close-up.
