I really liked this roadside cutting on the road to Bandanon. I imagined it done an artistic print.
Beautiful art is uplifting which is more than I can say about this week's book.
A book I have read recently
Another older book from the Australian list, Power without Glory by Frank Hardy. This is a long 700+ pages novel which is apparently a thinly disguised portrait of a real person who lived and ruled in Victoria around 1900-1950. It covers his early life as a gangster (from which he built his riches) to his later life as a major political influencer (using largess from his ill gotten gains) and his failed family life. It starts off at a great pace and slows down with all of the detail of his political manoeuvring. I guess the awful realisation is the extent to which money can buy power, even in the hands of quite unsavoury characters.
