The Chantic Bird - David Ireland

Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Some wear at DJ edges. Bumped at head and tail of spine.

Sacked from the last of a succession of jobs, the sixteen-year-old narrator of this book doesn't believe in a permanent home or relationship, and lives with what he thinks is complete freedom. He despises other people's conformity and exists casually on the outskirts of Sydney, rolling drunks, stealing where he can, sleeping in odd corners of the zoo, the cemetary or the bush.This, the author's first novel, is both a psychological study and a bizarre social commentary.
