A moving and brilliant literary novel about the last days of legendary bushranger Ben Hall.
Trevor Shearston is the author of Something in the Blood (UQP, 1979); Sticks That Kill (UQP, 1983); White Lies (UQP, 1986); Concertinas (Bantam Books, 1988); A Straight Young Back (Flamingo, 2000) and Dead Birds (HarperCollins, 2007). He lives in Katoomba, NSW with his family.
The Newtown Review of Books says 'Trevor Shearston presents a fresh view of bushranger Ben Hall in this spare and beautifully written novel... Game is the story of a man who seeks to understand his own life and choices, find his place in the world and foil his destiny; it can speak to us all.'
The Sydney Morning Herald (17 August 2013) says 'Shearston's version of the last weeks of Hall's life is a detailed, complex portrait that reflects and elicits fellow feeling without shrinking from the less-savoury aspects of his life and character.'
