Connelly suggests that this re-release of Astley's fictional work may have been inspired by the publication of Hooper's The Tall Man, a topical work of non-fiction, as both books deal with tragic events on Palm Island. Astley, says Connelly, 'creates an artistically thoughtful critique that addresses ... some of society's most controversial sore spots.'
