Since its publication in 1903, Joseph Furphy’s Such is Life has become established as an Australian classic. But which version of the novel is the authoritative text, and what does its history reveal about Australian cultural life? From Furphy’s handwritten manuscript through numerous editions, a controversial abridgement for the British market (condemned by A.D. Hope as a “mutilation”), and periods of obscurity and rediscovery, the text has been reshaped and repackaged by many hands. Furphy’s first editors at the Bulletin diluted his socialist message and “corrected” his Australian slang to create a more marketable book. Later, literary players including Vance and Nettie Palmer, Miles Franklin, Kate Baker and Angus & Robertson all took an interest in how Furphy’s work should be published. In a fascinating piece of literary detective work, Osborne traces the book’s journey and shows how economic and cultural forces helped to shape the novel we read today.

Just a few words to acquaint you with me, and who I am, and where I come from. I was born in Lawton Oklahoma, raised there also. I left there around 16 or so to explore America. Went to all the states except Hawaii-someday... maybe, maybe not. I've always wanted to be a writer, just didn't always know it. Some people have to be hit over the head with a book to realize it's a book. Anyway, I've been hit and I realize what I want to do with the rest of my life-no matter how long, or how short it may be.
Life ... It says ... “Turn to me and be gracious to me, For I am lonely and afflicted, The troubles of my heart are enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses. ... For I wait for thee” —Psalms 25:16–21 Such Is Life .
