'Listen carefully and I'll tell you where the gold is...' So begins Digger, Max Anderson's classic tale of adventure and adversity as he tries to stake a claim among the hard-bitten gold-seekers of the West Australian deserts. First published by Picador UK in 2004, Digger took readers into a world like no other - a Goldfields ghost town of 13 people, home to characters like snarling ex-truckie Ron, veteran treasure hunter Lazy Les and the elusive publican of the Grand Hotel, Kevin Pusey, who surveys all through a haze of cigarillo smoke. Digging between the abandoned shafts, Anderson learns the business of 'chasing the weight', unearthing superstitions and secrets, as well as stories of the original desert diggers who thirsted for gold. But ultimately he sinks deep into a small town's psyche and - risking his relationship and his self-respect - down to the bedrock of an age-old obsession. Gold. Reviews for Digger...* 'Old-time prospectors know how to deal with this squeaky clean novice.
But Anderson wins them over, as he wins over his readers, with his thoroughness, lack of pretension and an irrepressible enthusiasm' Sunday Times, UK * 'As entertaining a book as I've read this year. Anderson is a good listener, a keen observer, an avid researcher and a fine writer...He writes best of the complex webs of rules and etiquettes between diggers and the compulsion that drives them...The resulting account is informative, amusing and sometimes moving. You can hardly ask for more than that.' Sydney Morning H Please click here to ask a question
