Here is a masterpiece of unusual substance. The author himself is a peculiar fellow (worth reading about), but this novel has been described as feeling "less like something you've read than something you've dreamed." It is just that. Haunting, mesmerizing prose that picks you up and leaves you suspended, making you care more about the aesthetic quest of the Australian plains than you ever dreamed possible. The Plains goes deep, exploring a world aesthetic, spiritual, and cosmic, all the while impossible to articulate.
