A young boy caught in the conflict between early British settlers and native Aborigines witnesses the barbaric tensions that bedevilled the birth of a nation in this profound and mythical novel.

In the 1840s, a ship's boy, cast ashore in northern Australia, is taken in by Aborigines. Sixteen years later he steps out of the bush and inadvertently confronts the new white settlers with their unspoken terrors. A searing and magnificent picture of Australia at the time of its foundation, focusing on the hostility between early British settlers and native Aboriginals, Remembering Bablyon tells the tragic and compelling story of a boy caught between both worlds – the civilised and the primitive. Shot through with humour, and written with the poetic intensity that characterised Malouf's An Imaginary Life, this is a novel of epic scope yet it is simple, compassionate and universal: a classic.

'... one of the few contemporary novelists who examines our constantly battered humanity and again and again brings out its lingering beauty.'
The Globe and Mail

'...a wonderfully wise and moving novel, a novel that turns the history and mythic past of Australia into a dazzling fable of human hope and imperfection.'
The New York Times

'A dazzling novel ... The story has moments of such high intensity that they remain scorched in memory. As the story moves forward to its conclusion, we go unwillingly with it, not wanting this book, with the wisdom it contains, to stop speaking to us.'
The Toronto Star
