Utopian Man

02nd Nov 2020

I picked this one up because it was set during the turn of the 20th century. It follows the adventures of an eccentric businessman who runs a bookshop with other eclectic offerings in melbourne. I thought that novelty would be enough, but it also a wonderfully endearing story of a family and a fathers love. It goes into some of his history in the gold fields. With political and business relationships as well. Beautifully written and sweet.
