AHistoryOfBooksAdult Fiction Author

Gerald Murnane was born in Melbourne in 1939, spent part of his childhood in country districts of Victoria and moved back to Melbourne in 1949. In recent years he has been living in Western Victoria.

Gerald's latest book, Something for the Pain: A Memoir of the Turf is the winner of the 2016 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Non-Fiction. It was published by Text in September 2015. This unique and candid memoir tells the story of Gerald's life through the lens of horse racing, a fascination which began when he was a young boy.
