This is the third novel in the Meredith Trilogy which began with My Brother Jack followed by Clean Straw for Nothing.  Like the first two books, A Cartload of Clay is autobiographical and is technically unfinished as the author was still working on it when he died in 1970. The story of Jack's younger brother, David Meredith resumes at the point where he has returned to Australia and discovers anew a deep affection for his native land.  He recalls past events but his reflections are concerned more with the problems of life thus adding a new perspective ad a greater depth of meaning to the first and second parts of he trilogy.
