Neville the Less

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 review
Seven year old Neville is the world's most harmless person. Not even the return from Afghanistan of his war-damaged father, the Quiet Man, can alter his determination to stay that way. In the six yards of his Australian neighborhood, however, familiar prejudices, fears and obsessions provoke grim imaginings in adults and children alike until, with darkly comic inevitability, war comes to town.

About Robert Nicholls

I am a Canadian born Aussie, having emigrated with my wife from the cold wet coast of British Columbia to the warm wet coast of North Queensland in 1975. We both worked in the education system, in a Whitsunday high school, she in Science and I in English and History, for the following 35 years. The Whitsunday coast is as beautiful and its small rural towns (hello Proserpine!) as welcoming and nourishing as anywhere in the world. Retirement, however, saw us move to windy Ballarat in Victoria, to be closer to family. A lovely little city with much to offer.
I write because I love to write. I love the music of the words assembled by writers like J.P. Donleavy, Carol Shields and Tom Robbins. I also love to sculpt, in wood and stone, because things that can be made with, and held in, the hands are good for the soul.

Reviews of Neville the Less by Robert Nicholls

Roger Skinner reviewed on Nov. 22, 2015

War damage affects so many people, & much has been said, thought, felt, & written about it. With "Neville the Less" we get an engaging perspective of innocence, guilt, bigotry, fear, confusion, & all those other "Things" we may find right in our own neighbourhood. Written with a flair for the English language that is too rarely seen, making for an entertaining read. I wish that all writers could turn phrases as great as Mr Nicholls. Can't wait for the next book ...
