AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Someone's trying to cancel Cliff Hardy's licence, and he needs to find out why.

'He also has to work out why the case of missing schoolteacher Brian Madden keeps leading him back over fifty years to the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

'Finding the answers takes all his contacts - police, underworld and press - and keeps Hardy moving across Sydney, asking questions, probing the past... and finding the bodies.' (Publication summary)

Works about this Work

The Sydney Harbour Bridge : From Modernity to Post-Modernity in Australian Fiction Paul Genoni , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 12 no. 1 2012;
'This paper considers a recent spate of novels that deal in various ways with the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. These include Peter Corris's Wet Graves; Alex Miller's Conditions of Faith; Vicki Hastrich's ; and Sarah Hay's The Body in the Clouds. It is argued that these novels, written so long after the bridge's completion, are each grappling with the transformation of this icon of Australian modernism into the significant component in the nation's foremost experience of postmodern urban space - Circular Quay.'
