The life Jack built

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - Front Page -

Per­haps a bat­tler, per­haps just fiercely in­de­pen­dent in how he lived, Jack Stranger (Phillip Adams, “Stranger than fic­tion”, Oct 6-7) with his fra­grance, ec­cen­tric life­style and sex­ual ap­petites was in re­al­ity a cel­e­bra­tion of dif­fer­ence. Imag­ine such a life: sim­ple and solemn, with­out guilt, a life of in­tense sin­cer­ity that many would sadly mock and dis­miss as vul­gar and un­ac­cept­able. Vale Jack Stranger, you chose to live and die on your terms. Stephen Hart­ley Al­bany Creek, Qld
