All the Green Year by Don Charlwood

An ever-popular novel of boyhood life and adolescence set in a coastal town in Australia during the 1920s. Still just as relevant to young adults today, it is full of humour with entertaining characters brought to life. The essence of what it is like to be a boy on the edge of manhood is uniquely captured.

Burgewood Books is delighted to advise that All the Green Year is now available in the Text Classics series. This edition has an introduction by Michael McGirr and a new afterword written by Don Charlwood in his 97th year.

It is available as a print book and ebook from bookshops, online retailers and Text Publishing.
