AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It is 1968 and all around the world people are marching, protesting, and fighting for freedom. Jack Muir arrives in Papua New Guinea a failure, a virgin, and a reluctant employee of the Colonial Bank of Australia. Life in the islands is raw, sensuous, and real. Here, the white man takes what he wants, but the veneer of whiteness is flimsy, and brutality never far from the surface. This gripping and disturbing sequel to Boy on a Wire demonstrates that there is a world of difference between freedom and those things you unleash in others—and in yourself.' (Trove record)
