What people are saying about The Last Free Man and Other Stories

Each story enters a world apart, often spoken with a poetic dry wit, sometimes acerbic to the point of controversial, honest to the point of brutal. Some people and situations are so funny you’ll wish you’d been there.

Many times you wonder how some have survived – some don’t. From Ceduna, Madura, Mundrabilla, Kimba, and Yalata near the dog fence, Lewis has met, worked, and lived with the creme-de-la-creme of drifters and transients, as well as the fourth and fifth generational outback station owners.

In the great Australian outback – among the dry red soil, the mulga and saltbushes, where the kestrels observe and keep their secrets – beware who you’re talking to.

A spectacularly understated page-turner.
