Concentration Camp and Other Stories, Bingham, Geoffrey C.
3 Bingham, Geoffrey C. Concentration Camp and Other Stories
Australia New Creation Pub 1993 0949851078 / 9780949851079 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
182 pages. Those whose literary tastes are varied will find a smorgasbord from which to choose. Geoffrey Bingham in this book is different from his other books. The title is partly misleading for the title-story is not about a prison camp. It is part-allegory, part fantasy. And it concerns us all: it is apt for the moment in which we live. The other stories are easy to read. One or two were written in the far past, but most in the past year. Whilst some are pure fiction they yet have the ring of truth. This author is breaking into a new kind of writing by telling the truth in a form which is not just propositional, but which is of the substance of our living. That is why people are beginning to see the truth from a new angle. Truth is alive for today. It is not a book to be laid aside for later reading. It is for now. It will stir not only the imagination, but the heart also.

To Command the Cats, Bingham, Geoffrey C.
4 Bingham, Geoffrey C. To Command the Cats
Australia Angus & Robertson 1980 0207142181 / 9780207142185 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
x + 149 pages. A masterly collection of short stories by a born storyteller, To Command the Cats displays Geoffrey Bingham's remarkable talent at its best. Sharp, poised, he is often wryly amusing, always perceptive. The stories are of two different kinds, of war in Malaya in World War ll and peace in the New South Wales countryside, at a place Geoff Bingham calls Wirril Creek. Between these two groups stands the brilliant title story, To Command the Cats, which in its tautness and sensitive perception represents Geoffrey Bingham at his most powerful. It exhibits in essence the current that runs through the whole book, uniting the stories of war and peace; a concern with individuals and their need to express, and uncompromisingly af?rm, their uniqueness.

The Gucci Kangaroo & other Australian urban Legends, Bishop, Amanda
6 Bishop, Amanda The Gucci Kangaroo & other Australian urban Legends
Australia The Australasian Publishing Company 1988 0900882506 / 9780900882500 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
110 pages with urban legends, fables for adults, Amanda Bishop collects a score of tales and stunts - however improbable. Well dressed kangaroos, A random breath testing units and of course crocodiles in the sewers all have one very important thing in common. All those stories which supposedly happened to a friend of an uncle of the person who told you aren’t true - none of them. Amanda Bishop retells dozens of Australian urban legends - modern fables for adults, and explains why we are all so keen to believe stories which may be improbable, but are de?nitely very funny, like how a bunch of trendies were ripped off by an elegantly larcenous kangaroo. But be warned, that absolutely true story you heard last week might just be in this book. Readers love to believe them. "The Gucci kangaroo" may ring a bell with many people: the stories really did happen or did they?

19 Corris, Peter A round of golf: 18 holes with Peter Corris
Australia Allen & Unwin 1998 1864488530 / 9781864488531 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
169 pages. Every round of golf is a short story. It has a beginning, middle and end; obstacles are overcome, disasters experienced, triumphs achieved. Golf turns mild men and women into raging maniacs; wild, restless spirits into cold, calculating machines; adventurous optimists into gloom merchants; pessimists into buoyant risk-takers. Golf courses provide a variety of settings for these stories to be played out - howling wind, burning sun, driving rain or gentle mist; soothing breezes and shady glades. When a writer plays golf you can be sure that he or she (P.G. Wodehouse, Agatha Christie, John Updike) will write about it, usually humorously. Peter Corris has joined their ranks and, like them, has demonstrated that golf holds a comic mirror up to life like no other sport. Table of Contents: THE FRONT NINE The man who tried to give up golf; Sand; The horror hole; Cheating; Hole-in-one; The trip; The ghost; Tips; Handicapped. THE BACK NINE - The battle of the sexists; Bad manners; Water; Meeting Greg Norman; The great white groper; The operation; Putting; The grip; The Pro-Am. There is name in the 5th page.
