At the height of the Great Depression, with farmers walking off the land and the city's creeks lined with kerosene-tin shanties, a young mother is taken by a shark in the shallows at Henley Beach. Her grieving husband flees north with his baby son to the town of Pandowie, far from the treacherous ocean. In time, the boy will have a daughter- the wilful auburn-haired Anna Tolley. Nominated on its original 1996 release for the Man Booker Prize, The Sunken Road is Garry Disher's proudest achievement. This moving, powerful novel set in the wheat and wool country of mid-north South Australia is at once the story of a region, a town and a people-and of one of the most memorable characters in Australian fiction.
