Author Justin Sheedy Lauded by Alma Mater
5 August 2014
Sydney author Justin Sheedy shares one thing in common with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott: They attended the same school. Sydney’s famous Saint Ignatius College Riverview. This week Sheedy is proud to have been lauded by his alma mater in its influential Ignatian Magazine on the publication of his latest book, Ghosts of the Empire.
Critically acclaimed author of Goodbye Crackernight and Nor the Years Condemn Justin Sheedy (OR86) is back with a new book, Ghosts of the Empire…
As the storm of World War II breaks, Mick O’Regan is a peaceful Sydney working-class boy. Yet he and the shining youth of his generation are cursed to enter a world of high-speed life and death. Based on a true Australian war store only now being brought to life, Ghosts of the Empire is a story of young people living life to the full while they can in a blacked-out world where dance partners, sex and death flow in equal abundance.
Both Ghosts of the Empire and book one of the series, Nor the Years Condemn, are currently available through all good bookstores and are stocked by the Australian War Memorial.
