The freakishness of the inland

Germaine Greer has a rather good piece at the Guardian about (re)reading the best bad book she's ever read: Colleen McCullough's The Thorn Birds.

(I must confess I've never read it--didn't see the miniseries either, but I remember what a stir it made at the time!--this was the kind of book my English grandmother most liked, the multigenerational family saga in an interesting location, with heaving bosoms...)
