Fiction. "This is a tough, dramatic novel, based on opal mining somewhere out near Coober Pedy in Central Australia. The most immediately gripping and vivid aspect of the novel is the fascination with opals. The author has conveyed this fascination hypnotically and there are many chapters and sections where the reader is held in thrall. I found myself turning the pages, wanting to know what happens next." From a reviewer, National Book Council of Australia. 187 pages. View more info
