Kate Grenville meets Cormac McCarthy in a hugely enjoyable rollicking, literary western set in the most isolated and feared penal colony of the British Empire.

Lenny Bartulin is the author of the Jack Susko trilogy and a published poet. Born and bred in Hobart, he is currently living in the Blue Mountains.
