Product description

Review

An astonishing narrative... at once dreamlike and as compelling as the description of a terrible accident... a beautiful melancholy. -- Andrew Martin, Daily Express, 25 May 2002

An honest and revealing account of poignant drama. -- Sunday Times

Mr Pearson's impressions of the hot, dead world of blinding light in which ambitions, jealousy and suspicion flare up... are vividly conveyed. -- Times Literary Supplement

Pearson's account of 1964's strange days in the Australian desert shimmers with heat haze and human drama. -- Guardian, 9 June 2002

The whole set-up is too fantastic to be created by a novelist, and the result is close reporting at its best. -- Daily Telegraph
