Crispin Clare returns to his ancestral home in Suffolk to recover from a tropical disease he contracted while working in the Pacific. His life is now one of quiet mornings and peaceful afternoons spent in the garden. Suffering physically and psychologically, Clare turns to writing as a source of therapy. Intrigued by the local folklore he re-examines his life and the world around him through myth and legend. Illness-induced fever dreams and strange voices in his head blur the lines between reality and these mythic tales.

Reviews

'As eccentric as it is magnificently achieved.' Geordie Williamson 'His novels and poetry embody a uniquely rich and strange account of the land and people of Australia that we can ill afford to lose.' Australian Book Review 'It is a rare pleasure for those of us who are already fans to have these works at our disposal...[Stow was] the most talented and celebrated Australian author of the post-White generation.' Monthly 'It should be taken as no commentary on contemporary Oz Lit that I choose Text's fistful of Randolph Stow reissues for my local favourite(s) during 2015. Their appearance reminds us that a gentle, wise, wounded, and immensely talented poet in prose once lived among us.' Geordie Williamson, Australian Book Review, Books of the Year 2015
