Shortlisted, Miles Franklin Literary Award 1995
Winner, Victorian Premier's Literary Award 1995

This is Albion Gidley Singer at the pen, a man with a weakness for a good fact. The first fact is always the hardest: you have to begin somewhere, and such is the nature of this intractable universe that the only thing you can start with is yourself.

Dark Places, a companion novel to Lilian's Story, is the tale of a man with a comically grand exterior who believes he has the right, and the duty, to conquer the mocking flesh of any woman. Even his own daughter.
