Snip Freeman is a painter with a waitressing problem, a wanderer in search of her past. She'll visit a place, find a man and a studio and a scrap of a job, until the zing of uncertainty pulls her on. She is anchored nowhere, touches the earth lightly. Then she turns her back on a drowning man. And suddenly she has reason to stay put.

Taking up Shiver's theme of women in tough places, Cleave illuminates the troubled relationship between wandering and settling, belonging and freedom, parents and children, partners and lovers; between white and black, secretive silences and the truth. It is a novel of great power and lyricism.

    " I didn't like this book and couldn't finish it. "

    " Unlike Ben Guterson I don't think Gemmell went on too much about Snip's 'desperado ruthlesness'. If you're alone for long enough, sometimes you cope in the manner described and it is a big part of you. "

    " There's some wonderful writing in this book and Snip is a compelling character. However, by the end, I felt the insight into Snip was beginning to feel repetitious. Still, I enjoyed the book and the Australian setting. "

    " Eased me into Aussie slang on the way down from Phnom Penh. My third consecutive book dealing with starvation. "
