Shane Maloney: In Praise of Shhhh
Regular browser Shane Maloney asks for a bit of shoosh as he talks about the value silence in our public places, how libraries were once carried on camel back in alphabetical order and how crucial libraries are – not only to his work as a writer but as 'treasure houses' of our culture.
Contains strong language.
Born in Hamilton in western Victoria in 1953, Shane Maloney is one of Australia’s most popular novelists. His award-winning and much-loved Murray Whelan series – Stiff, The Brush-Off, Nice Try, The Big Ask, Something Fishy and Sucked In – has been published around the world.
