Such Is Life Overview

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Set in the Australian outback in the 19th century, Such Is Life is the fictional diary of Tom Collins, a bull driver with a penchant for philosophical musings.

Author Joseph Furphy’s classic is known as much for its dry humour as it is for its historic value. The book unfolds as a collection of short vignettes about Tom’s travels and encounters. His descriptions of the outback make you feel like you’ve saddled up and are riding right next to him, and there’s a lot of fun to be had in deciphering entire paragraphs written in bush dialect. Immerse yourself in a long-gone era with this Australian classic.
