About the Book

Renowned novelist and creative non-fiction writer, Robert Drewe teams up with internationally acclaimed poet John Kinsella, to explore a common geography in poetry and prose. The Australian Way Magazine calls it ‘evocative writing’ while Bookseller+Publisher calls it ‘excellent summer beach reading’.

Sand is quintessentially Australian. It is a property from which many of our stories, assumptions and geographical reckonings are drawn. For Drewe and Kinsella, it evokes the memories – both personal and cultural – that inspire the writing in this book. Digging into its shifting foundations, the authors use their own lives to explore the importance of sand in the Australian psyche.
