This book tells the story of author Mark MacLean's year walking a concrete drain in suburban Newcastle with his cairn terrier, Jambo. The River Styx was the barrier between Earth and the Underworld in Greek mythology. In the mid-nineteenth century the name was also given to a small creek in that ran along Newcastle's western border. The story of what happened to Styx Creek and how it became a vast, straight "drain" that slices through the suburbs of Newcastle, forms the backdrop to this book. Equal parts diary, inquiry and observation, A Year Down the Drain invites you on a journey with the author into Newcastle's watery underworld. 'An enchanting read' (Peter Beale, Newcastle Herald) 'Completely delightful' (Richard Fidler, ABC Radio National) 'The Gilbert White of the Styx' (poet Bob Adamson)
