This startling first novel from ex-patriot teacher and author Tom Fisher draws its inspiration from Xavier Herbert's 'Poor Fellow My Country' and Kenneth Cooke's 'Wake in Fright'.
It tells the story of a lonely small town boy suffering the double disadvantage of being being too handsome and far too intelligent.
He is abused, bullied, neglected, diagnosed as autistic, until Wally, a funny, eccentric old man with a speech impediment goves him a lift home after school, and changes his life.
Uncompromising in its eroticism and violence against a background of rural parochialism, the reader is left wondering how it can be possible to get talented and intelligent students through school without tearing them apart as human beings.
