   ʻA “wild mouse” of sea, sex and hallucination. Judy Johnson is a terrific storyteller.ʼ Dorothy Porter..

 

   ʻIf I had to compare her to anyone writing today, it would be Anne Carson.  Their inspirations differ, but their poetry achieves–through a masterly command of language and a kind of imaginative completeness–the fullest potential of the verse novel.'  Cameron Woodhead, Sydney Morning Herald.

 

   ʻThe narrative is compelling, characters powerful, and the setting at once squalid and rich.  the tension sustained here between a claustrophobic pearling lugger and the seductive tropical seas is unrelenting.ʼ  Judges comments, Victorian Premierʼs Awards.

 

   ʻJackʼ won the Victorian Premierʼs Award.  It was on the Sydney and Melbourne University syllabus.  

 

It is available for purchase as an audio book through bolinda publishing www.bolinda.com/aus/
