AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In a strange and richly compelling story, Rosie Scott reveals the subterranean world of seventeen-year-old Adan Loney. The deceptively simple narrative slides beneath the surface into the primal world of fears and dreams he can't articulate - the force that drives him as he travels up the coast into the surreal landscapes of Australia's far northern tropics, in search of a meaning he only half understands, burdened and inspired by his movie dreams.' (Publication Summary)

Notes

  • Epigraphs:
    One of the reasons so many actors of my generation have been drawn to actors in America - Brando first, Clift, De Niro, Pesci, Duvall - is the way in which poetry is created out of the life of someone who can't express himself. - Daniel Day Lewis

    Imagination separated from reality festers. - Angela Carter

    I am too alone in the world and not alone enough to make every moment holy. - Rainer Maria Rilke
