Image of Newtown Voices

A verse novel by Sydney author and poet Sue Cartledge, published by Ginninderra Press.

Everyday life in Newtown in 1978 through the voices of locals and newcomers: violence, intimidation, corruption, bombings, wogs, dagos, Abos and Aussies, racism, sexism, homophobia, poverty, drugs and disco dancing.

The personal and emotional lives of Tom and Harry, Jaroslav and Buzz echo the political and social turmoil in Australian cities through the late 70s.

Commenting on it all, from a strictly parochial viewpoint, is the fearless editor of the the local weekly paper, The Newtown Voice.
