Neville the Less

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
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 to North Queensland in 1975. Since then, we've raised a son and have both been working in the state high school system. My areas have been English, History and Geography while hers has been Science. I write because I'm hooked on the music of words. I also sculpt, in wood and stone, because things that can be made with, and held in, the hands are good for the soul.

Review by: Roger Skinner 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 ...
