Digger Smith

Clarence Dennis SHOP:9781460756034

One of C. J. Dennis's most poignant books of verse, Digger Smith recalls a singing soldier from The Moods of Ginger Mick, who returns from Gallipoli to become the country neighbour of Doreen and the Bloke (The Sentimental Bloke). In true Dennis style it is told with wisdom, humour and pathos.

This edition, published to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One, has been minted from one of eight extremely rare books of verse originally published by Angus & Robertson as little reminders of home for soldiers to slip into a pocket and carry through the fighting.

 

Hard cover, illustrated, 120 pages.
