Author: Tim Watts
John Howard was the unlikely reformer of Australian society. He loosened migration laws, massively boosting the population and making it less white. Simultaneously, his divisive rhetoric about national identity—a legacy of White Australia—hamstrung discussion of these huge changes.
As the MP for a diverse electorate, the partner of a Hong-Kong-Chinese-Australian and father of Eurasian-Australians, and the descendant of a proponent of laws stopping Chinese people from coming here, Tim Watts asks: Why don’t we remember Billy Sing, the Chinese-Australian sharpshooter at Gallipoli, or that Ararat was founded by Chinese miners? Why is Australia’s imagined community so far behind our lived community?
The Golden Country challenges us to reckon with the dark heart of Federation, the racial core of the Australian Legend, and to confront outdated notions of Australianness. It crunches the numbers on the economic and social effects of migration, and looks to a more inclusive future.
Author: Jennifer Gilmore
Golden Country, Jennifer Gilmore's masterful and irreverent reinvention of the Jewish American novel, captures the exuberance of the American dream while exposing its underbelly -- disillusionment, greed, and the disaffection bred by success. As Gilmore's charmingly flawed characters witness and shape history, they come to embody America's greatness, as well as its greatest imperfections.
Spanning the first half of the twentieth century, Golden Country vividly brings to life the intertwining stories of three immigrants seeking their fortunes -- the handsome and ambitious Seymour, a salesman-turned-gangster-turned-Broadway-producer; the gentle and pragmatic Joseph, a door-to-door salesman who is driven to invent a cleanser effective enough to wipe away the shame of his brother's mob connections; and the irresistible Frances Gold, who grows up in Brooklyn, stars in Seymour's first show, and marries the man who invents television. Their three families, though inex-tricably connected for years, are brought together for the first time by the engagement of Seymour's son and Joseph's daughter. David and Miriam's marriage must endure the inheritance of not only their parents' wealth but also the burdens of their past.
Epic and comic, poignant and wise, Golden Country introduces readers to an extraordinary new voice in fiction.
Author: Shūsaku Endō & Francis Mathy
The events described in this exciting and provocative three-act play, a companion piece to Endo’s highly acclaimed novel Silence, take place in 1633, nearly a hundred years after Christianity was introduced into Japan. By this time, Japanese Christians were being cruelly persecuted by the government; every Christian searched out was made to apostatize or suffer a slow, agonizing death.
The central character of The Golden Country is Father Christopher Ferreira, a Portuguese Jesuit missionary. Given shelter by a Christian farming community, everyone looks to him for help, including one of his chief persecutors. When, after cruel torture, Father Ferriera apostatizes to the disbelief of his Japanese converts, the play reaches a climax that is later capped only by the courage, nobility and love of the martyrs. Father Francis Mathy’s detailed Introduction to this tightly constructed drama, which poses basic questions about the meaning of faith, love and fate, provides valuable historical background.

The inspiring and entertaining story of a determined woman and an isolated farming life in Golden Bay. Robby Robilliard and her husband Garry arrived in Golden Bay in 1957. Married in their early twenties, and with a child on the way, they longed to own their own sheep station. When they bought Rocklands, a marginal farm on the fringe of the Takaka Valley, bordering Abel Tasman National Park, their dream had come true - but it wasn't the life they had envisaged. It was a property no one else wanted, described by the agent as 'one hell of run-down place'. Robby even came to call it 'nightmare land'. The three previous owners of Rocklands had gone bankrupt. Yet it was all they could afford. Sixty years on, Robby and Garry still call Rocklands home. In fact, Gary is referred to as the 'oldest sheep farmer in Golden Bay'. This engaging book is Robby's story of the decades in which she and Garry eked a living out of Rocklands and of her encounters with the many and the varied local characters of Golden Bay.

Country singer Judd Rich is frustrated. His gigs go well but he is getting nowhere and his next gig is out of Darwin, miles from country music action.
Mick Turner is a drunk and feels he is washed up for good. He needs something to fire him up or he feels there may be nothing to live for.
They meet by chance and for each of them there is a hope that they might find what it is that they each want so badly.
Can Mick recreate the successes he was able to achieve in earlier days as a creative promoter? Can Judd create the songs he will need to be noticed and finally have a recognised CD?
Judd meets Anne and falls in love. Will this help him or make things more difficult? Mick meets Veronica and they never can work out their feelings for each other.
Cal Aitken joins the group. He can sing and he can play. How will this affect relationships within the troupe as they travel the Australian country?
This is a story about people, country music people, travelling the country and pouring out their music to a growing number of dedicated fans.
