Steve Harris book brings to life a most bizarre social experiment and all its grotesqueness in engrossing form. Its a very human, dramatic and authentic tale, written so comprehensively that it is a service to Australian and British readers. Tom Keneally, winner of the Booker Prize and Miles Franklin Award
History as suspenseful, vividly portrayed, affecting and moving as the best films and fiction. Robert Drewe, award-winning author
Steve Harris skilfully portrays one of the most sobering and saddest stories in Australian history. Professor Geoffrey Blainey, AC
A moving story of two boys, embedded in a penetrating and thorough study of a grim part of Tasmanias history: the harsh treatment of boys transported for often minor crimes. Alison Alexander, award-winning author
Steve Harris The Lost Boys of Mr. Dickens is a marvellous book. Harris takes, as his subject matter, an important, seriously neglected aspect of our past, one which stands in urgent need of cultural rehabilitation. It is, furthermore, unputdownable history that races along at a pace that seems inherently suited for film. Pete Hay, award winning Tasmanian writer, academic and activist
