Gerald Glaskin Revisited
By John Burbidge
I had grown up in 1960s Perth and was acquainted with the work of a number of local writers, but I had never heard of Neville Jackson or this ostensibly groundbreaking novel of his. Furthermore, as a gay man surely I would have caught a whiff of this Jackson and his writing. But this was not the case. I was intrigued and perplexed. Who was this man who dared to write about such a verboten topic and set his story in the very time and place in which I grew up? What drove him to do this? What kind of person was he? What else had he written?
