Description

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, the white man takes what he wants. But the veneer of whiteness is flimsy, 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.

Review quote

"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, author, Benang and That Deadman Dance
