Steele Rudd


On Our Selection - Steele Rudd
Imprint Classics ISBN 1 875892 33 8
256pp illustrated AU$14.95

Steele RuddThe complete 1903 edition of the Australian short story classic that has made Dad and Dave, the Rudds of Queensland, part of our national mythology. The humour is droll, the stories wonderfully understated, and the pathos of the selector's life given all the wisdom and humour it deserves. The publication of this illustrated and fully restored edition of On Our Selection coincides with the release of the new film of Steele Rudd's stories. The introduction by Philip Butterss from the University of Adelaide gives all the background information to the story and shows the way the humour works and why Dad and Dave have had such lasting popularity.

Profile :-

Steele Rudd's real name was Arthur Hoey Davis. He was born in 1868 in Queensland, the eighth child of a family of thirteen. As a teenager he worked as a stockman, and then went to Brisbane to work in an office. His first selection of stories appeared in the Bulletin in 1895. On Our Selection was first published by the Bulletin in 1899. Rudd died in 1935, and his name has been given to the only annual award for a book of short stories, the Steele Rudd Award, presented by the Queensland Premier.
