'Two not-so-young lovers have left Sydney to take up new jobs and lives in the north of England. he is Australian with youthful memories of surfing and sunlight: she a Scot, uneasy about her origins and about her job as an arts organiser. before committing himself to Katie and the north, Joel Cairns stops over in Greece where in a rented bedroom, in intimate circumstances, he catches sight of Hokusai's Great Wave, an image that looms over the novel, threatening chaos yet promising power.'
