SHORTLISTED FOR THE MILES FRANKLIN LITERARY AWARD 2019
Rodney Hall, two-times winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award, presents the story of three people experiencing a period of life they never thought possible, and, perhaps, should never have been granted at all.
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 . . . Until he receives a surprise inheritance in the evening of his own life.
