This title comes with an introduction by David Malouf.
Through the crumbling ruins of the once splendid Xanadu Miss Hare wanders, half-mad.
In the wilderness she stumbles upon an Aborigine artist and a Jewish refugee.
They place themselves in the care of a local washerwoman.
In a world of pervasive evil, all four have been independently damaged and discarded.
Now in one shared vision they find themselves bound together, understanding the possibility of redemption.
