'In a wealthy part of Sydney, Felicity Bannister (Kerry Walker) pretends she has been raped by a prowler, in order to take control of her own life. Her neurotic mother (Ruth Cracknell) is more worried about her daughter's upcoming wedding. Her father (John Frawley) is concerned that she's no longer a virgin. As the family's fragile structure crumbles, Felicity becomes a prowler herself.'

“Splintering and Coalescing” : Language and the Sacred in Patrick White’s Novels Lyn McCredden , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Patrick White Centenary : The Legacy of a Prodigal Son 2014; (p. 43-62)
‘In the years directly after World War Two, novelist Patrick White confronted a series of thresholds. Each one would take him further into his vocation as a writer of astounding, dense, haunting novels. The young Patrick White did not, of course, know this at the time. He first needed to cross the world, returning from his beloved London to become an Australian again. He had to begin writing about Australia, about being Australian, but not just this. He began to seek ways of writing about how meaning is made, in Australia and beyond; and how meaning is made alone, and in community. This struggle to make and unmake meaning, it will be argued, is a languaged, sacred struggle. ’ (Introduction)
