Clancy is a misfit who doesn’t even fit with the misfits - she’s sixteen and just trying to work out who the hell she is when her dad is involved in an accident that kills two local teenagers, her girl-crush finally notices that she exists, and new-girl Nancy walks into her life.
Top-notch Aussie rural literary noir. A deeply unsettling exploration of boyhood and the rippling damage of child sexual assault.
The dark and intense follow-up to one hell of a debut. ‘A wasteland of shattered people’ and some killer dialogue set in the oppressive heat of an Australian summer.
