British & Australian Fiction
Inspired by a lecture she has attended, Regina Stanton, a young journalist, embarks
upon a journey through the forces determining contemporary culture. Leaving behind
the vestiges of a failed romance, she travels to the Whitsunday Coast in Australia’s
Queensland where she meets Tyro.
She spends five days basking in the sun and sampling fine wine in her new new companion’s monsson forest retreat where Tyro recounts his experiences of life in Papua New Guinea, providing an insightful perspective of the political
and social framework of the time.
This novel is set in 2015 and offers a disturbing yet thoroughly abosorbing view of the future as a benign conspiracy to overcome the civil unrest that threatens
to tear Australia apart, is revealed.
