    In the sleepy and conservative 1950s the British began a series of nuclear tests in the Montebello archipelago off the west coast of Australia. Even today, few people know about the three huge atom bombs that were detonated there, but they lodged in the consciousness of the young Robert Drewe and would linger with him for years to come. In this moving sequel to The Shark Net, and with his characteristic frankness, humour, and cinematic imagery, Drewe travels to the Montebellos to visit the territory that has held his imagination since childhood.

    Our Sunshine is the tale of a man whose story outgrew his life. Robert Drewe's strikingly imaginative re-creation of the inner life of Ned Kelly, the National Hero and Devil Incarnate of the Antipodes, is written with brilliant clarity and impressionistic economy.

    Some relevant facts about Grace: apart from being named after a 100,000-year-old skeleton, she was 29, and for much of the past three years she'd been hiding from a stalker. Physically and emotionally besieged, Grace attempts to claw back her personal territory by abandoning her inner city life as a film reviewer and fleeing to the remoteness of the Kimberley, the northwest part of Australia where existence and territory have altogether wider implications.
