Alan Bollard, novelist?

Southern commentator Mark Hubbard has written to me saying "in case you don't frequent Australian economic and classical liberal blogs, this one might not make it onto your radar . ... 
I knew nothing about it until I read lawyer Stephen Franks blog. 
Alan Bollard, the just retired governor of our Reserve Bank, while managing the Bank through the GFC was at night writing a novel set during WW II then into Cold War. 
Reading Stephen's blog, is loosely traces the course of economics in one of the most important periods in modern history when the intellectual rebuttal to Marx was being made by the like of Hayek, et al, but almost in the form of a spoof.

His novel can be downloaded from Amazon here:

Oh, literary types, Graham. That's the Austrian economic school, not Australian. You better read Mr Bollard's book :)
