AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Michael Sullivan comes of age on the eve of the new millennium in a small country town in the fur-ravaged western third of Australia. The fur infestation began before he was born: it was always there. Like jungle reclaiming an abandoned city, black plumes of fur burst open cracks in the concrete and soar menacingly over derelict buildings. The state is strictly quarantined from the rest of the country and Michael's burning desire to escape is matched only by his zeal to stay and play his part in making a better world. Which is it to be — escape or revolution?' (Source: publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Epigraph: The Hebrew word for 'dreaded skin disease' and 'mildew' is the same. Note on Lev 13:47 Good News Bible.
  • Epigraph: A person who has a dreaded skin disease must wear torn clothes, leave his hair uncombed, cover the lower part of his face, and call out, 'Unclean, unclean!' ... Whenever there is mildew on clothing, whether wool or linen ... it is spreading mildew and must be shown to the priest. Leviticus 13:45-49.
  • Epigraph: No one knows what is going to happen next, and no one can tell us what will happen when we die. Ecclesiastes 10:14.
