Based on a true story, Strandloper tells the extraordinary tale of a nineteenth-century Englishman who, having been sentenced and transported to Australia, escaped to live among the Aborigines for thirty years.
Alan Garner was born in Congleton, Cheshire, in 1934 and grew up in Alderly Edge, where his father's family had lived for more than three hundred years. He was educated at Manchester Grammar School and at Magdelen College, Oxford, after which he began writing his first novel, The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, at the age of twenty-two. He is renowned as one of Britain's outstanding writers for young adults and has won many prizes for his writing. In 2001 he was awarded the OBE for services to literature.
"A work of terrible beauty" -- Nicci Gerard * Observer * "A remarkable feat of literary imagination" -- Stephen Amidon * Sunday Times * "Strandloper's vision is cosmic and as elusive as a rainbow... The ending gathers the words into a powerful cry for wisdom that recognises the ineffable" -- Rosemary Sorensen * Sydney Morning Herald *
