Just Relations Reviews
A rich, symphonic novel that is beautifully written and deeply Australian. It's a shame it isn't better known - Rodney Hall's imagination is vast, and his prose is gorgeous; simultaneously crystal-clear and complex, as lustrous as a nugget of gold washed down from a mountain stream.
