Marked by the events of the Great Flood of 1893 and the formation of the first miners unions, Over My Dead Body is an Australian epic- a literary feat exemplifying a writers craftsmanship and dedication to bringing history alive. It puts Australias current resource-driven prosperity into context by showing the day to day struggles of ordinary workers just trying to get by. With panoramic themes reminiscent of Lawrences Sons and Lovers, this thoroughly researched, award- winning retrospective will certainly remind its readers of the important place unions have earned in todays society.
