Tom Keely's reputation is in ruins. And that's the upside.

Divorced and unemployed, he's lost faith in everything precious to him. From his seedy highrise flat Keely looks down at a society from which he's retired hurt and angry, well past caring. But he cannot avoid entanglement with the neighbours- a woman from his past, a boy the likes of which he's never met before. Two strangers leading a life beyond his experience and into whose orbit he falls despite himself.What follows is a ground-breaking novel for our times - funny, confronting, and inhabited by unforgettable characters.

    I recommend this novel to Tim Winton reader's. If you have not tackled one of his works before, don't start here. It's a complex offering by one of the greatest writer's this country has ever produced. So don't be light hearted in your application to this work. It has all the earthy and extremely honest qualities that you would expect from him. The prose is so luxurious that you will want to take your time. I didn't fall in love with the characters but I did love the aching truths buried just beneath the surface and the wonderful descriptive Australiana which is ever present in any Tim Winton novel.
