Witty, raucous and full of life, the unforgettable novel of Australia's larrikin days.
First published in 1911, 'Jonah' was one of the first great novels of Sydney. Set in the slums of Redfern, Alexandria and Waterloo, it is the story of a man, hunchbacked and outcast, whose life is lived on the streets as leader of a larrikin gang. It is also the story of the place - Sydney in all its crumbling glory - and its jostling cast of characters.
