Clouds of Magellan will be launching in coming months two titles: a new collection of stories by Ashley Sievwright; and a re-issue in single-volume form of Garry Kinnane’s ‘Shadowed Days trilogy’. The COVID-19 lockdown is providing some challenges for the launching of new books, and we are investigating podcasts and other methods of publicising our titles.
Sunlight: The Shadowed Days Trilogy by Garry Kinnane – releasing midyear. Pre-war Melbourne, through to the Bohemian 60s, a sojourn in Greece, study at Oxford. Garry Kinnane’s memoirs movingly capture the challenges and hardships of growing through family tragedy to finding love and friendship.
“A beautifully written evocation of a childhood during the post-war years in Victoria… Shadowed Days excels at pinning down a certain time and place.”—The Age
“… [a] quietly moving tale of a working class boy’s search for love and life beyond the
confines of the world he grew up in.”—Sydney Morning Herald
