Ernest Hunter’s Vicarious Dreaming: With Jack Idriess on Madman’s Island documents a series of personal voyages between Cooktown and the Torres Strait that are interwoven with accounts of exploration, exploitation and escape. The travels and tales coalesce around the works of Ion ‘Jack’ Idriess and the lives of solitary men at the edge of the world. Come along to hear Hunter discuss his book with Gary Foley.
