2016 NSW Premier's Literary Awards Indigenous Writers Prize Joint Winner!
Product Description
Winner of the 2013 David Unaipon Award.

In this award-winning work of fiction, Ellen van Neerven takes her readers on a journey that is mythical, mystical and still achingly real.

Over three parts, she takes traditional storytelling and gives it a unique, contemporary twist. In 'Heat', we meet several generations of the Kresinger family and the legacy left by the mysterious Pearl.

In 'Water', van Neerven offers a futuristic imagining of a people whose existence is under threat.

While in 'Light', familial ties are challenged and characters are caught between a desire for freedom and a sense of belonging.

Heat and Light presents a surprising and unexpected narrative journey while heralding the arrival of an exciting new talent in Australian writing.
