David and Jack Meredith grow up in a patriotic, suburban Melbourne household during World War I, and go on to lead lives that could not be more different. Through the story of the two brothers George Johnston created an enduring exploration of two Australian myths: that of the man who loses his soul as he gains worldly success, and that of the tough, honest "Aussie" battler, whose greatest ambition is to serve his country during the war.
Acknowledged as one of the true Australian classics, 'My Brother Jack' is a rewarding, complex and moving literary masterpiece. Winner of the Miles Franklin Award.
Now a major new television mini-series starring Matt Day, Simon Lyndon, Claudia Karvan, William McInnes, Angie Milliken, and Jack Thompson.
