Some relevant facts about Grace Malloy. Apart from being named after a 100,000-year-old skeleton, she was twenty-nine and for much of the past three years she'd been hiding from an erotomaniac.

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 – where existence and territory have altogether wider implications.

Lying low, working in a wildlife park, she slowly reclaims her sanity. Her only links to the outside world are her father and her stalker.

Intricately plotted, breathlessly paced, Grace reflects on the countless varieties of love and the nature of fear.

At once intimate and grand in scale, this disquieting and provocatively witty novel reveals the full vigour of an artistic vision in turn poetic and cinematic.
