Notes: The author's second novel, inscribed by him on the flyleaf: 'Best wishes to the Downies, Mrs D. and Patrick, from the author, T. Keneally'. Patrick Downie was amongst Keneally's closest friends at Christian Brother St Patrick's College, Strathfield; blind from birth, Downie relied on his friends to read to him – a labour of love of which, John Molony reports in the Celebration of the author published by the National Library of Australia in 2006, Keneally 'undertook the greater share'.
