Crossing the Great Divide Book Launch

Wild Dingo Press

Event Date: 3 April 2019
Author / Presenters: Raimond Gaita; Rod Moss

A classic coming-of-age story, a fascinating insight into the making of a man in mid-20th-century outer suburban Melbourne. The reader is swept along through an historical arc of great moments­­ with an artist-philosopher’s apprehension. Epic in scope, compelling, exhilarating and eloquently crafted, with rare and raw honesty, he takes us on a journey from childhood reflections as he roams the natural and his inner world in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, to philosophical, cultural and artistic explorations in Europe, America, and the Middle East. A trip to the Pilbara Indigenous community opens a door on Aboriginal Australia. For the last 35 years, his curiosity and openness has fastened him to the luminous power of Central Australia and its First Peoples.

Join Raimond Gaita, philosopher and award-winning writer, and the Wild Dingo Press team to launch this extraordinary memoir.
