David Martin was arguably one of the most versatile and best known among the so-called Australian migrant writers in the second half of the 20th century. His works cover a wide range of genres. He wrote for Meanjin, Overland (of which he was one of the founding members), and numerous other periodicals. A number of his works have been turned into TV and radio scripts. Many have been published overseas and translated into other languages.
Too stands for Tooramit, a little town with a big dilemma. Should it celebrate its founding day by honouring the memory of its only authentic hero, Dick Grogan, the famous bushranger? The upper crust prefers to forget him. Less prominent citizens, including teh family of Klep Quinn, lord of teh nightcart, have other ideas. At the storm's heart is Steve Turner, school teacher and idealist. Before the stunning climax sacred traditins lie shattered, and Grogan proves NOT to have been another Ned Kelly.
