Abstract:

"An experimental novel written in diary form, it is clearly a work of fiction. Yet it is also illustrated with over 170 photographs, based on real historical events, and firmly rooted in the real-life, day-to-day procedure of policemen in post-WWII Sydney. The plot has all the usual crime novel ingredients--sex, drugs, violence, corruption--but this book is anything but generic. Our diarist narrator is a priest stationed at Central police station, who each day, completes his summer exercises, in which he records thoughts, overheard conversations, and seemingly anything else that occurs to him."--Provided by publisher.
