The powerful thriller ‘SOON’ from Lois Murphy, winner of Tasmanian Premier’s Unpublished Manuscript Prize
An almost deserted town in the middle of nowhere, Nebulah’s days of mining and farming prosperity – if they ever truly existed – are long gone. Yet for Pete, an ex-policeman, Milly, Li and a small band of others, it’s the only place they have ever felt at home. One winter solstice the birds disappear. A strange, residual and mysterious mist arrives. It is a real and potent force, yet also emblematic of the complacency and unease that afflicts so many of our small towns, and the country that author Lois Murphy knows so well.
Partly inspired by the true story of Wittenoom, the ill-fated West Australian asbestos town, Soon (Transit Lounge $29.95), is the story of the death of a haunted town, and the plight of the people who either won’t or simply can’t abandon all they have ever had. With finely wrought characters and brilliant storytelling, it is a taut and original novel, where the people we come to know and those who are drawn to the town’s intrigue must ultimately fight for survival.
Soon is now available at all good book stores and online at http://transitlounge.com.au/
