*Shortlisted for the 2019 Miles Franklin Award*

Adam's life has been ruined by war . . . A veteran of the Iraq conflict who has suffered such extensive bodily trauma that he can only really survive by means of a mechanical skeleton.

Marianna's has been ruined by men . . . A woman who has had to flee the country after her husband lied to the wrong people.

John Philip's by too much money . . . A man who inherits the lost erotic drawings of J. M. W. Turner in the evening of his own life.

Rodney Hall presents the interwoven story of three people experiencing a period of life they never thought possible and, perhaps, should never have been granted at all . . . Each sets out along a separate path, seeking a stolen season in which they can live on their own terms.

Rodney Hall

Rodney Hall is one of our foremost authors.

He left school at sixteen for family reasons, already determined to become a writer and to educate himself by experience. Two years later he was called up for National Service. Afterwards, when the opportunity arose, he sailed from Brisbane to Genoa and set out, with £112 in his pocket, to walk around Europe.

He was thirty-one when he enrolled at university and his formative literary influences-quite at odds with those of his contemporaries-were already set. He studied Old English and the cultural history of India while supporting himself as an ABC radio actor and scriptwriter.

Since then he has won two Miles Franklin Awards, his novels have been widely published and translated into many languages, and he has been twice presented with the gold medal of the Australian Literature Society.
