Product Description

From an impressive new voice in Australian literature, a novel where safe harbour seems always just out of reach.

Sam Carmody is a real literary talent, with an artist's inquiring mind and a natural feel for the beauty and toughness of language. - Charlotte Wood, author of the award-winning The Natural Way of Things

A young fisherman is missing from the crayfish boats in the West Australian town of Stark. There's no trace at all of Elliot, there hasn't been for some weeks and Paul, his younger brother, is the only one who seems to be active in the search. Taking Elliot's place on the boat skippered by their troubled cousin, Paul soon learns how many opportunities there are to get lost in those many thousands of kilometres of lonely coastline.

Fierce, evocative and memorable, this is an Australian story set within an often wild and unforgiving sea, where mysterious influences are brought to bear on the inhospitable town and its residents.
