First published in 1937, The Young Desire It is a stunning debut novel about coming of age: an intimate and lyrical account of first love, and a rich evocation of rural Western Australia. It won the Australian Literature Society Gold Medal, and is now back in print for the first time in years with a new introduction by David Malouf.
Join David Malouf and Joan London in conversation with Peter Rose to discuss this wonderful novel, re-published in the Text Classics series.
