Part road trip, part memoir, part history, part political commentary, The Dealer is the Devil is illuminatingly thought-provoking and provocative. It is an incredibly exciting and fast paced account of the fluctuating fortunes and exponential success of the Aboriginal art movement, with all of the elements one would expect of a complex drama, played out on a national and international stage.
“Every rock, every hill, every water, I know that place backwards and forwards, up and down, inside out. It`s my country and I got names for every place.”
Queenie McKenzie at Black Fellas Creek, Old Texas, 1995
