The Doubleman by CJ (Christopher) Koch, first American edition, hardcover.
This book is seminal for me, and my understanding of Tasmania. It's also the 1985 Miles Franklin winner and it was the first time that I had ever read my town in fiction (even if Harrington Street runs the wrong way, which I understand has irked some readers).
It features a self educated Tasmanian mystic, a bike ride up the East coast, a stint on the mainland (could he not hack it?) - amd some general trippy shit.
Dated, but still an important tome in this history of our letters.
Good condition first edition hardcover.
1986, McGraw Hill Book Company (first published 1985)
