Have just received my own copy of the 1937 Palmer abridgement of Such is Life. Scanned and roughly transformed into text I can now see the extent of the Palmer revisions. An extended account will be provided later, but for now I can confirm that the Palmers removed approximately 40,000 words for this English edition of an Australian classic. This edition will be included in the electronic edition of Such is Life for those interested in editorial intervention for marketing and cultural reasons.
