Paul Daley’s Canberra fuses narrative history with poignant memoir and contemporary observation to evoke a city he calls the ‘accidental miracle’. Beginning and ending at the lake and its submerged, forgotten suburbs, it chronicles the city’s unsavoury early life and meanders through St John’s graveyard where pioneers rest. Daley contemplates Canberra’s vibrant suburban dynamic, while musing on a rich symbolism and internal life fostered by the bush and the treasure of the national cultural institutions.
