WHICH WRITER WROTE

My new weekly quiz, Which Writer Wrote (WWW) will feature passages of writing across all genres; prose and poetry, novels, songs, biography.

This week, is an excerpt from an Australian book I have chosen randomly from my shelves and you have three vastly different Aussie authors to choose from as a match.

Were they still laughing at some silly women’s joke? Or was it possible – was it conceivable? – that they were at this moment winking at each other, and laughing not at some frilly little schoolgirl joke, but at me, the man, the one who did not know things that they knew…Pride forbade me to turn around and squint into the light, but the air in front of my face grew dark and the muscles of my face froze.  I closed the door on them with loathing: a loathing born of despair.
