Book Reviews - Non-Fiction

Deadlines and a year moving at warp speed meant it’s taken me a few weeks to getting around to reading Benjamin Law’s second creative non-fiction book, Gaysia (his first book is the soon-to-be-made-into-TV The Family Law). And it’s taken me a few days to digest its often funny, often heartbreaking content.

Bloodhouse is the extraordinary and brutally honest story of career criminal Darcy Dugan (1920-91), who became famous for his uncanny ability to escape custody. So good was he at his craft that Dugan came to be known as ‘Houdini’ by the Sydney press.
