Watsonia. Don Watson in Conversation
A Celebration of Don Watson
Few writers have given as much thought into what it really means to be Australian than Don Watson. His books, including Caledonia Australis, Rabbit Syndrome, Death Sentence, The Bush and Watsonia, address reconciliation, our changing relationship with the land, politics and language, and our dynamic with the United States. His extraordinary career as a former speech-writer, historian and satirist also give him unparalleled insight into what makes us tick – and what we can learn from past mistakes.
