Apart from chasing my tale I don't know what I'm doing. And I mean this in a very general way indeed. I've never been at all clear about what I'm doing. I can't be highly articulate about my writing. Andrew Riemer, the Sydney academic and critic, who is also a personal friend, told me that as a result of the publication of The Ancestor Game I'm now considered to be a revisionist historian by certain of his colleagues at Sydney University. When I read history at Melbourne University in the sixties with Marion Gibbs I learned, or thought I learned then, from that very great teacher, that all history is revision.
