2. «As long as boil the pot», Henry Lawson
Henry Lawson is a classic of Australian literature. What should I write Australian writers, not about the hardships of his own in this hostile environment? Heat, physical work, regular people who do their work. Lawson was born in the Goldfields and understand what he writes. He knew about the life of the rural people first hand – and wrote about it. Very cool and unusual fiction.
3. «Live» Tom Collins
Another Australian, whose novel in 1903, excited the immature minds of urban residents. Its theme is similar to what Lawson wrote. At that time there was a very strong realism and appeal to rural life. Although it is hard to believe that in the early twentieth century in Australia was some kind of city life. Tom Collins was a Democrat and did not write about the rich and successful, and those people who are much less fortunate. Eternal companions Australians – sand and hell of the book attached.

The novel had been written in 1959 and published only in 1998, when johnny Depp stumbled on the manuscript during the next drinking with Thompson.

The book is included in the list of the hundred best works of African writers. Realism and humor are connected with the folklore of the Yoruba people. To read it is very unusual, which is not surprising, because the author is a writer from Nigeria. Amos Tutuola called the most eccentric writer of Africa, and he is the first Nigerian author who was able to get international calling. The story tells of the journey into the magical city where all is not as in our world. Another world full of magical creatures that put a spoke in the wheels of the main character.
