Australian Tragic review ↠ 104 Here are stories from Australia's dark heart Of catastrophe and misfortune intrigue and passion betrayal and tragedySome you may think you know others you have never heard of but will capture your imaginationThey range across our past and our pre. While at first this took a little time to take hold of me about halfway through something happened and I became gripped by these poor victims of pathos and warm tales of bathos Of particular mention are the stories of the bush doctor who performed miracles with monkey glands only to have his research lost to a funeral pyre and the anger inducing anecdotes of injustice to simple warm hearted working folk and felines through nothing but cold greed or apathy These are tales that will haunt me as they obviously did Marx when he wasn t fearing alien abduction that is you ll have to read the book Eually fascinating is the fresh angle Marx gives to familiar tragedies such as Steve Irwin as a study in media back flipping that would make Rupert Murdoch look idealistic Martin Bryant through the eyes of his father s conundrum and Micheal Hutchence as he would be considered had he not pranced around impersonating Jim Morrison in front of some fortunate synth players but rather just been some bloke in the corner of the local beer garden By the end I put Australian Tragic on a par with what I consider Marx s masterpiece Sorry The Wretched Tale of Little Stevie Wright wwwgoodreadscombookshow4450564S Buy it for someone for Honika or Christmas then borrow it back before you leave Or like me just knick it from Tug Dumbly s kitchen when he s pissed BDF

Australian Tragic review ↠ 104 Ded up in an unmarked American grave; Steve Irwin who was written off as a joke by the media only to be hailed as a hero on his sudden death; and a man who heroically survived a war to find himself crushed and defeated by events much closer to ho. I love true crime and I cannot lie I also love collections of true crime And I cannot lie about that eitherThis collection is not exclusively true crime but the bulk of it is There is something for just about everybody all of it leaning strongly toward the macabreThere are some flashes of humor as with the section on Steve Irwin which provides a scathing study of how uickly Irwin went from being a mildly irritating rather stereotyped celebrity in the minds of his own countrymen to a virtual pariah and laughingstock due to his baby dangling incident and general theatrics involving dangerous animals to some kind of beloved folk hero upon his unexpected death by stingrayThere s also the tragicomic tale of marcus a rich young playboy who set out to become Australia s newest rock star despite having no talent whatsoever for singing or performingAnd then there are the truly tragic stories They include an analysis of the mental problems of Michael Hutchence though Marx refers to him as Mr River he apparently did this in order for the reader to get a picture of the man without any preconceived notions but his identity becomes obvious by the end of the piece Then there s the harrowing account of a family s encounter with a bushfire in the 1930 s which in light of the current wildfire situation in the western US is especially timely and chillingThe one thing I didn t care for in this collection is the fact that it was so Aussie centric By which I mean Marx often makes reference to people or events that few non Australians would know about making it necessary to do some Googling in order to appreciate what he is trying to say This is not really a fault by itself until the book becomes available outside of Oz so despite the assumption that the reader already knows about Luna Park or the Battle of Gallipoli for instance I found the book very informative and entertaining
