This startling first novel from ex-patriot teacher and author Tom Fisher draws its inspiration from Xavier Herbert's 'Poor Fellow My Country' and Kenneth Cooke's 'Wake in Fright'.
It tells the story of a lonely small town boy suffering the double disadvantage of being being too handsome and far too intelligent.
He is abused, bullied, neglected, diagnosed as autistic, until Wally, a funny, eccentric old man with a speech impediment goves him a lift home after school, and changes his life.
Uncompromising in its eroticism and violence against a background of rural parochialism, the reader is left wondering how it can be possible to get talented and intelligent students through school without tearing them apart as human beings.
Born in England in 1951, Tom Fisher migrated to Australia during the 1970s as an aspiring young teacher. Initially attracted by the legendary toughness and independence of the Australian bushman he soon started to notice perplexing anomalies. Eventually retiring from teaching he returned to university to complete a specialist degree in literature, and is now a full time writer.
