More of the Kangaroo

Murray Bird and Greg Parker

Despite commonly held misconceptions, Australian football has been played in Queensland for a long time. Over 150 years ago the first Brisbane Football Club was formed and since then Australian rules football has been played in the sunshine state, albeit for a brief period in the last decade of the 19th century.

After over a decade of research, Greg Parker and Murray Bird released More of the Kangaroo in late November 2018. The comprehensive history is over 900 pages in length and covers the trajectory of the code throughout the state. It includes over 500 images and reveals facts about the evolution of the code at a local level that are little known. This book is a local history, detailing the heroics, the controversies, the premierships and the success and failures, from Cairns to Coolangatta. Local heroes and villains, champion teams from Townsville to Toowong, umpires, interstate matches, women’s football and much more are chronicled, described and brought to life.

If you love the game of Australian football, if you have an interest in the history of Queensland, or if you just like a well-researched and well-written book, More of the Kangaroo is the book for you.

Hakoah Heroes

David Goldberg

This book has been written as an eternal tribute to a very humble Jewish Australian named Kurt Defris.

The young Kurt Defris was a dashing winger in the Austrian First Division Football League. In 1931 Kurt was transferred for a large fee from his club Fair Unitas to the famous Hakoah-Vienna. Kurt Defris, like so many persecuted Jews, fled Austria before annexation of Austria into Nazi Germany on 12 March 1938. In 1946 Kurt Defris came to Australia and remained in the Great Southern Land for the rest of his life.

Within weeks of his arrival this truly great man brought a dream into a reality, a reality that ultimately gave tens of thousands of Jewish immigrants in a new land, hope, safety among their own, and finally great pride in something, that, by its very nature brought together multitudes of people from all races and all creeds into perfect harmony.

The Olive Kiss

Shona Cox

The Olive Kiss tells the story of the unknown nuance between a master craftsman and a wealthy Judean merchant – an evolving friendship that leads to jealousy, envy and fatal mistakes.

Published in 2017, The Olive Kiss takes an ancient story and re-imagines it. With original artwork commissioned as printed works, The Olive Kiss is a study of poetry, literary exploration and art. Written in the visual style of cinematic prose, peppered with lyrical descriptions and focusing on the intimate relationships between characters known to the biblical world, The Olive Kiss is both a prayer and a quest for the great ‘what if?’

‘Brilliant and beautiful’ with visionary insight and turn of phrase, Shona Cox has crafted the poetry and landscape of the ancient world sublimely. Yet, the characters remain modern, their tension and demands completely on trend with everyday life, of friendship, desire, intrigue, distrust, and loss. The Olive Kiss is written for now, its message of old resonating through time to strike a chord in our contemporary buzz. Listen, absorb and seek the more is the mantra of this work.
