Fiction • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Written in 1991, these are the highly personal imagined ramblings of the Australian outlaw Ned Kelly as he awaits a showdown with police at Glenrowan. In long sentences, vitriolic and lyrical by turns, he covers his youth as an Irish immigrant farm boy, his imprisonment, love affairs, mates, and the unique Australian landscape and wildlife. Michael Veitch has the requisite accent and is to be congratulated on not running out of breath. We hear Kelly's bitterness towards the police, his bragging about his crimes, and his almost poetic descriptions of his successes with the ladies. The movie NED KELLY will be out soon, giving listeners a factual framework on which to hang this fanciful memoir. J.B.G. 2005 Audie Award Finalist
