2350 KNEALE, M. Engelse passanten First edition. . 416 p. 2000 De Bezige Bij SOFTCOVER: (Or.paperback. ALS NIEUW) 1857: wanneer kapitein Illiam Quillian Kewly en zijn bende smokkelaars worden onderschept door de Britse douane, worden zij gedwongen om hun schip de Sincerity ter beschikking te stellen als passagiersschip. De enige passagiers die zich aanmelden zijn twee excentrieke Britten, pastoor Geoffrey Wilson en dokter Thomas Potter, die willen dat Kewly hen naar de Hof van Eden brengt, die volgens de dominee op het eiland Tasmanië moet liggen. Intussen is in Tasmanië de 'civilisatie' van de Aboriginals door de Britten in volle gang. De slimme en charmante Peevay vertelt over de moorddadige aanslagen van de Britten op zijn volk, dat op gewelddadige wijze van hun land wordt gedreven. Wanneer de Sincerity uiteindelijk Tasmanië bereikt, veroorzaakt de botsing tussen de culturen krankzinnige uitbarstingen van geweld. Te midden van alle hysterie wordt eenieder geconfronteerd met persoonlijke waarheden omtrent verovering en vernietiging. [KEY WORDS: Australia Tasmania Literature fiction Voyages Travel ] € 16.50
