In a conversation spanning generations, young writers from all over the country sketch theextraordinary lives of ordinary and elderly Australians they find inspirational - there are nocelebrities, only characters; elders whose stories might otherwise never be told. The writers range from Vogel award-winning novelist Danielle Wood from Tasmania, twicenamed Young Novelist of the Year by the Sydney Morning Herald, to fourteen-year-old NicholasDyer from Perth. Renowned photographer Oliver Strewe provides stunning black-and-whiteportraits throughout, which capture every wrinkle and twinkle in the subjects' faces. Evocative and engaging, heartfelt and irreverent, Lines of Wisdom provides a gentle mediationon the march of time and the history of Australia itself. It contains wise words but, mostpoignantly, it's an enduring reminder to listen while we can.
