Since its first publication by Melbourne University Press Australia s Home has been in constant demand. The author summarizes his story, from 1788 to 1960, as a material triumph and an aesthetic calamity'. Readers have thoroughly enjoyed the combination of informative detail and quiet humour, and the architectural features of a house, a street, or a suburb, which have up until now been simply different , gain an added interest and significance. People read Australia s Home for pure pleasure as an eventful illuminating story. Householders read it to see their house and streetscapes afresh through Boyd s eyes, their own vision both criticized and enriched by his. Architects and planners read it to agonize with Boyd over built forms and townscapes ...But the book is most remarkable of all as history, a great bit of poaching by an architect-journalist who never claimed to write history at all.
