Driving into the Sun
Written by Marcella Polain
For Orla, living in the suburbs in 1968 on the cusp of adolescence, her father is a great shining light, whose warm and powerful presence fills her world.
But in the aftermath of his sudden death, Orla, her mother and her sister are left in a no-man’s-land, a place where the rights and protections of the nuclear family suddenly and mysteriously no longer apply, and where the path between girl and woman must be navigated alone.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘Driving into the Sun is a truly beautiful book, imaginatively dense, tender, full of respect for children and the vivacity of their inner worlds. The vision here is original and brilliantly true …’ Gail Jones
