Description

Doust works deftly: he disturbs us, then he makes us laugh, and with our prim censure destabilised helps us move toward an altogether more complicated, and perhaps more compassionate, attitude.' Kim Scott
It is 1968. All around the world people are marching, protesting, fighting for freedom and free love.
Jack Muir arrives in the islands fresh out of Grammar School: a failure, a virgin, and a reluctant employee of The Colonial Bank of Australia.
Life in the islands is raw, sensuous, real. Here, you may take what you want, especially if you are white. But the veneer of whiteness is a flimsy one, and brutality never far from the surface.
To be free, you must set free. So says George Kanluna, future leader of the islands. Yet there is a world of difference between freedom, and those things you unleash in others - and in yourself.
