Bryce Courtney, Well Remembered.


On a late winter Saturday afternoon Bryce Courtney breezed into the gallery. There was urgency if not desperation to find a box to fit the stack of hand written manuscript for his first novel “the Power of One”. No box in the gallery was deep enough. How deep? About 200 mm. We can have it made to order. “In a week?” “For my wife’s birthday!” A week. Phone calls. And yes, says Garrick blue, I have one length of timber that would suit. If I drop everything I can do it in a week.

Smiles and relief all around. And on leaving Bryce said, “Everyone in Bungendore is so friendly.”
