Hunting the Wild Pineapple by Thea Astley
Leverson the narrator at the centre of these stories calls himself a ‘people freak’. Seduced by North Queensland’s sultry beauty and unique strangeness, he is as fascinated by the invading hordes of misfits as by the old-established Queenslanders. Leverson’s ironic yet compassionate view makes every story, every incident, a pointed example of human weakness- or strength.
A 1979 hardback copy with a green cloth cover and white lettering to the spine, it has an unclipped dustjacket. The edges, dustcover and inside front pages and title page have foxing. The text is clear.
