The Landscape of Desire

Several months have passed since the expedition of Burke and Wills disappeared into the desert - their whereabouts remain a mystery.Now, a search party has assembled to rescue them. Meanwhile, two other men are wandering lost in the outback- one on the verge of reaching safety; the other, broken and trapped at the heart of the continent with an Aboriginal tribe as his only hope of survival.Back in the city an actress, star of the stage in Melbourne and Sydney, longs for the return of Burke and Wills for personal reasons that will only gradually become apparent.Set in rapidly changing yet still unknown Australia and loosely based on the ill-fated Burke and Wills Expedition, The Landscape of Desire is a stunning debut novel that re-imagines the lives of the key players in this historic event and weaves them into a narrative that spans continents and decades. Written in mesmerizing prose, with echoes of Heart of Darkness and The English Patient, The Landscape of Desire slowly reveals its own secrets about love and identity, desire and death.
