Nevil Shute's gripping story of a Melbourne reeling in the wake of nuclear war finds a new home and a new look, as Text publishes this beloved Australian classic in a handsome hardback.

About the Author

Nevil Shute was one of the most successful novelists of the twentieth century. He was born in London in 1899, studied at Oxford and became an aeronautical engineer before turning to fiction. He joined the Royal Navy during World War II. After the war Shute migrated to Australia, where he died in 1960 having written more than twenty books, the best known of which are A Town Like Alice and On the Beach.


‘On the Beach played an important role in raising awareness about the threat of nuclear war. We stared into the abyss and then stepped back from the brink.’

‘The rerelease has got an essay at the front from by Gideon Haigh, which immediately makes it worthwhile.’
*Jock Serong*
