'Banshee' is set in the academic and bohemian world of Australia in the 1920s. Its central character is Colum O'Fallon, a sort of two-bob Yeats who could be modelled on anybody from Christopher Brennan to Vincent Buckley. He is convinced he's a poet and everybody - including his family - must sway to his will and wear his arrogant scorn.
'...a savage deconstruction...' Steven Carroll, The Sunday Age, 19 May 1996
