Cr8vo XVI, 224pp. Hardcover with orange cloth boards and d/w in very good condition, not price -clipped, and protected by clear archival covering, text in very good condition with light flecking on all edges. Stow was born in W.A in 1935 and developed wide contacts with Australia’s arid interior, hence allowing him to write about a “lost ” township yearning for rebirth yet at a deeper level it is a “fable of life and man’s everpresent temptation to seek refuge from the world of his own reality”. A wonderful second novel after the famous Miles Franklyn award winning “to The Islands” from 1958.
