About the Author

Bingham’s stories have an odd elusive charm of their own ... we can see what his world is made of and feel its full impact.’ Douglas Stewart, poet, past Literary Editor The Bulletin.

‘Whether he is being kindly or critical, he is always perceptive, always probing at the heart of things, always fascinated by human diversity’ Colin Thiele, notable writer of fiction for young and old.

‘His prose is tight, his action quick... characterisation is insightful and warm ... an appealing kindness and integrity about his stories.’ Andrew Lansdown, poet, winner of John Bray Poetry Award 1994.

'His stories are homely and wholesome tales reflecting the scents and sounds of bush life; the struggle of man and beast to survive; and the knock-about characters known to us all.' Sir Marcus Loane, former Anglican Archbishop of Sydney and author of many books.

Geoff's writing captures the essence of Australian life and portrays the heart of the people.' Rob Linn of Historical Consultants, Australian historian, prolific author, including the recent Their Sacrifice (book and CD Rom) for 'Australia Remembers 1945-1995'.

"Geoffrey's literary gifts shine in this difficult field of the short-story writer in these concise tales..." Sir Edward (Weary) Dunlop, AC, CMG, OBE, eminent surgeon, renowned Australian and former POW.
