Title: The Unknown Industrial Prisoner.
Description: Sydney Vintage / Random House Australia, 1997. 1st this pub ed. Paperback trade, very good condition, pages faintly toned as common, minor edgewear. 379 pp. Novel by noted Australian writer about a modern man being relentlessly ground down in his workplace. They work at the Puroil Refining Termitary and Grinding Works as prisoners of foul conditions, exploitative management and anonymous shareholders. Isolated and alienated, reduced to seeking oblivion through alcohol and assembly line sex, they are the products of a society which offers an infinite freedom of choice but no alternatives, where it is safer to be shackled in chains than to be free to fend for themselves. His second novel, originally published in 1971, and winner of the 1972 Miles Franklin Award. ISBN: 0091836557.
