About the Author

Chloe Hooper was born in Melbourne in 1973. She was educated at the University of Melbourne and as a Fulbright Scholar at Columbia University, New York. Her first novel, A Child's Book of True Crime, was a New York Times Notable Book and short-listed for the Orange Prize. She lives in Australia.


"It is impossible to overestimate the importance of this book." -- PETER CAREY, AUTHOR OF HIS ILLEGAL SELF AND THEFT: A LOVE STORY
"Chloe Hooper illuminates the brutal and tragic legacy of racism in northern Australia with first-rate reporting and incandescent prose. Tall Man should become a classic of literary nonfiction." -- MARYANNE VOLLERS, AUTHOR OF GHOSTS OF MISSISSIPPI
"Follows in the tradition of classic nonfiction novels like Truman Capote's In Cold Blood as Hooper brings lyrical power to actual events. The result is a real-life Heart of Darkness in the Australian badlands." -- TIME OUT SYDNEY
"Every sentence is weighed, considered, even, restrained. Every character is explored for their contradictions, every situation observed for its nuances, every easy judgment suspended. Hooper has a feeling for the intimacy of violence, the fragility of the flesh, the tawdry inevitability of corruption, the fathomless depth of loss." -- THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
