Description

It is 1934, the Great War is long over and the next is yet to come. It is a brief time of optimism and advancement. Erotically charged, and shot through with humour and a quiet wisdom, this haunting first novel evokes the Australian landscape in all its stark beauty and vividly captures the hope and disappointment of an era.
