'Dymphna Cusack's new novel, moving between the sophisticated world of urban Australia and the sub-world of the Aborigines, depicts the struggle of 45-year-old Tempe Caxton to find a meaning for her life after she is deserted by her lover and has ceased to be a popular Television star. When the story opens, Tempe is drifting back to existence after an unsuccessful attempt at suicide.'
