Another day. Another scar. Another sunburnt suburb. Toby and Suzie are two teenagers caught in a riptide of aimless wanderings, violence and stolen cars. They want to escape Another, an estate on the edge of the suburban never-never. But first they must escape the ghosts of the past. Joel Deane's poetry and fiction has a simultaneously unflinching and gritty realism and a sophisticated lyric beauty that combines in an original, intense, and startling new voice. - Charles Wilmoth, Intersection for the Arts, San Francisco This is the rubble of suburbia, an Australia we are too smug to acknowledge, too scared to enter. Joel Deane has written a dark and moving novel about families on the margins. - George Megalogenis, journalist and author of Faultlines
