I now live not far from Hanging Rock, the setting of one of Australian literature’s great, unsolved mysteries Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay, as well as Peter Weir’s haunting film adaptation from 1975.
Mr B grew up attending family picnics and horse races on this ancient site. His father’s regular joke was to yell “I found them!” whenever he spotted three old ladies together (read the book to find out why this is funny).
I’m talking about Picnic at Hanging Rock on the English Muse today. I’ll be blogging there every Tuesday evening from now on, so please pop by to say hello, and let me know what else you’d like to see on my guest posts.
