I have been scouring the charity shops for this book by Robert Hughes - has anyone got one I can buy?

I usually resort to e bay for books that I can't find. x

Have you tried your local library? They can sometimes access books from store if it is not held currently.

Do you mean The Fatal Shore, Nansypansy, about the history of the birth of Australia?

There are some cheap 'used' copies on Amazon.

If you mean 'The Fatal Shore' Nansy there are loads on Amazon.

My first port of call is Oxfam Bookbarn but have just checked and they don't have it.

Are you sure you have got the right title? A quick search on Ebay and Amazon revealed books by Robert Hughes entitled The Fatal Shore. I hope you find what you want.

I read this years ago, no idea what happened to my copy, sorry.

Yes, Fatal Shore. Silly me! I'll have another look on Amazon.
