"Jonah" is a novel set in Sydney in the early 1900s. Many of the places described--Chinatown and Paddy's markets, Botany Road, Sydney Harbour and its foreshores--are icons of Sydney. The characters--members of the 'Push', rags-to-riches businessmen like Jonah and battlers like Chook and Pinky--are just as recognisable today.

This novel has been described as the first great novel about Sydney. It has been the subject of a television series and has been adapted for the stage.
