About this product
- DescriptionDao Ba Khang has left war-ravaged Vietnam and settles in Australia with an Australian wife and family. One day he discovers that his skin has turned black. He thinks to hide among tribal Aborigines in the Australian outback, but finds as he progresses on his journey that they too have been made victims of a tragic fate - annihilated by British nuclear testing and deprived of their land. Written in the 1970s, Manhunt is the first novel of B. Wonger's Nuclear quintet.
- Author BiographyAB. Wongar is an Australian author of fiction, drama and poetry. In 1960 when aged 28, he began to learn English in order to write; since then he has published 20 books. In his unique genre of writing, Wongar portrays the fate of Australian Aborigines which he also links to the state of Australian perishing wildlife. He is best known for his Nuclear Quartet-novels Walg, Karan, Gabo Djara, Raki and Mada which extended the perimeter of creative writing and brought him international recognition. Some of his earlier work have been banned by the Australian Government, thus depriving him of publishing opportunities in Australia and the U.K. Wongar began publishing first in France, Germany and the USA, encouraged by Simone de Beauvoir, Samuel Beckett and many other well known authors. His books are often illustrated by traditional Aboriginal artist Yumanga Burarrwanga of Arnhem Land. Wongar is a life member of the Australian Atomic Ex-Servicemen's Association. He lives with his pack of dingoes on his bush property in Gippsland, south of Melbourne.
