  • Epigraph:
    A lit of cities have a word like this, the name of a place, but carrying a terrible freight of pain and fear and misery. A scare word, and a swear word too, a bogie man of a word...New Norfolk...what a weight of sadness and humiliation and hopelessness those place names carried.

    -Marion Halligan, 'A Family Bible', 2007

    Tasmania. Madness in its name.

    -Brian Castro, Drift, 1994
