In his fourth novel Shark award-winning Aboriginal author Bruce Pascoe, begins his story in the sleepy Australian town of Tired Sailor which is nudged awake when a black child arrives, forcing people to accept the child alongside memories of their own dark past. Rooster Clark, mad Koori electrician, lives in the hidden reaches of the swamp and in the more obscure reaches of his own brain, a swamp savant capable of anything - as long as he survives his own wiring. And Jim Fox returns from the Papuan Independence war to the land of his birth and the yabby pumper who turns up on his doorstep at dawn. Will Tired Sailor ever really wake up?
