Fairyland

by Sumner Locke Elliott - £8.99  The Text Publishing Company (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781922147103 | ISBN 10: 1922147109

The final book by Sumner Locke Elliott, the award-winning author of Careful, He Might Hear You.
 
Drawing heavily on Locke Elliott’s own experiences, Fairyland charts the life of Seaton Daly, an aspiring writer coming to terms with his homosexuality in the repressive atmosphere of inner-city Sydney during the 1930s and ‘40s. Lonely and naive, Daly dreams of escaping to the 'promised land’ of the United States.
 
Fairyland is an intimate, affecting, sometimes harrowing portrayal of a lifelong search for love. Sumner Locke Elliott’s ‘coming out’ novel, it was first published in 1990, the year before his death.
 
This new edition comes with an introduction by Dennis Altman.
