    The Acolyte MOBI º Hardcover acolyte kindle, The Acolyte KindleShockingly I’d never read any Thea Astley until I read The Acolyte I felt guilty about having not done so sure but it wasn’t until I was at a loose end and needed a book uickly that a hasty grab from a bag of books rescued from the last days sale of a cavernous bookstore brought it to my attention And boy am I glad that chance brought me in contact with the story of Paul Vesper the titular acolyte of blind and fictional composer and pianist Jack Holberg Because it makes me feel a lot better about my own creative inertia frankly Interestingly the book – a Miles Franklin winner – was apparently written as a response to Patrick White’s The Vivisector Where that work focuses on the creative journey of its main character in a universal sense Astley’s work does the same and finds as Kerry Packer said of the afterlife that there’s nothing fucking there Rather than celebrating and analysing the meaning gleaned from

    The Acolyte MOBI º Hardcover acolyte kindle, The Acolyte KindleI’d expected that at only 158 pages The Acolyte would offer a uick and relaxing read in between some heavy duty classics I was obviously unfamiliar with Thea Astley Australia’s most critically acclaimed female novelist winner of four Miles Franklin Awards who is – as I’ve now discovered – renowned for her dense “difficult” style Australian author Helen Garner has said Astley writes
