I think this collection is where the reader will start to see the true value of this author. His anecdotal memories from his arrival in Australia flow well and build up a nice picture of a young migrant adapting to his new land. Then he segues into some interesting essays that focus on the characters rather than the deeds, such as George the scone maker and the more tragic yet proud Big John. I found The Masked Transformer among all the stories to be the most intriguing and very well constructed. It had a distinctive style and voice and kept me reading, trying to fathom what it was all about and enjoying every line. Well done Kurt.
All up, a great selection of work, well worth reading.
