In this provocative and wide-ranging collection of stories, Angelo Loukakis set the bar for a generation of Australian writers to come. These finely crafted and sensitive fictional explorations of lives led on the outer or on the edge continue to challenge cherished myths and expectations in literature and life. Acknowledged as a pioneering author, Loukakis work in FOR THE PATRIARCH remains critical to the growth of a more expansive and aware Australian literary culture whose writers now include names such as Beth Yahp, Nam Le and Christos Tsiolkas.
