John Gordon Morrison (1904-1998) Australian writer, born in Sunderland, England; he settled in Australia in 1923. He has been a jackeroo, swagman, dock worker, and gardener. He published stories in Meanjin and Overland, about fellow workers, union activities, the people he met on the tram to work, and social conditions.
Stories such as ‘The Incense Burner’, in which a sick sailor, unable to work his passage home, burns gum leaves in his lonely room, reflect Australian nostalgia.
