The long-awaited second novel from highly acclaimed author Archie Weller.
Archie Weller was born in 1957 and was brought up on a farm in the southwest of Western Australia. His first novel, The Day of The Dog, was written and submitted to the 1980 Australian/Vogel Literary Award within a period of six weeks in a spirit of anger after his release from Broome jail for what he regarded as a wrongful conviction. The book was shortlisted by the Vogel Award judges and won the fiction award in the literature section of the prestigious Western Australia Week Literary Awards. In 1991 The Day of The Dog was made into the film Blackfellas, which won two AFI awards. Archie has also published Going Home, a critically acclaimed collection of short stories, plays and poems, and he is a regular contributor of short stories to various publications.
