AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When We Have Wings by Claire Corbett is an interesting and unusual novel from an Australian writer. Interesting because it is so beautifully written and thoughtful. Unusual because it is set in a future where climate change and genetic engineering have brought great changes – and some people have been given the ability to fly. The reality of what it would mean to fly is powerfully explored through the stories of Zeke, a private detective, and Peri, the flier he has been sent to find. She has run away, taking with her the child that she used to mind for a rich couple – the job that made it possible for this country girl to be given wings. Published by Allen & Unwin in July 2011, When We Have Wings has since been published in the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, and Spain. It is Claire’s first. novel. ' (Author's introduction)
