Winner of the Miles Franklin Award, 1987.

Lark Watter had always planned to run away from her stifling suburban life in 1960s Sydney. At university she encounters an American, Tom, and with him the promise of escape. Following Tom to the other side of the world by freighter is a journey to freedom. But the adventure Lark has embarked on isn't quite what she had anticipated. Not on the way there, and certainly not in New York...

A picaresque journey across the high seas and through the extremes of the '60s, Dancing on Coral was Glenda Adams' second novel and established her international reputation.

This new edition comes with an introduction by Susan Wyndham.

Glenda Adams was born in Sydney in 1939 and studied at the University of Sydney. She later taught Indonesian there after travelling through Indonesia. She moved to New York in 1964 to study Journalism at Columbia University and teach writing, living mainly in the United States until 1990, when she returned to Sydney. She lectured at the University of Technology, Sydney, before her death in 2007.

'A comic epic and sharp satire...a voyage of liberation.' Elizabeth Jolley

'An ebullient comedy...wonderfully satisfying and enriching.' Kate Grenville

'A wicked and witty novel.' Sydney Morning Herald
