The ensuing events of this novel unfold with stark brutality amidst a seldom-seen New Zealand cityscape. Littered streets reflected in rain puddles, crowded speeding highways and noisy smoke-filled bars- a world of inarticulate turmoil. Alan Duffs powerful second novel confirms his skill as a gripping story-teller who offers a grimly authentic view of the lives of the urban dispossessed.
