    'Renowned novelist and creative non-fiction writer, Robert Drewe teams up with internationally acclaimed poet John Kinsella, to explore a common geography in poetry and prose.

    'Sand is quintessentially Australian. It is a property from which many of our stories, assumptions and geographical reckonings are drawn. For Drewe and Kinsella, it evokes the memories - both personal and cultural - that inspire the writing in this book. Digging into its shifting foundations, the authors use their own lives to explore the importance of sand in the Australian psyche.' (From the publisher's website.)
