Summary
"Rob Drewe returns to his familiar genre with this exquisite collection of short stories dealing with the complexities of human relationships, many set against landscapes that are as threatening as they are beautiful. In 'The Water Person and the Tree Person' a husband becomes aware of his wife's dissatisfaction with their marriage through her insistence on classifying his as a sea person and herself as a tree person. 'Sea Level' mines our deep fear of abandonment, telling the story of a child who waits all day for his parents to heed a Tsunami warning and pick him up from school, as all the other parents have done that day. 'The Whale Watchers' pits a son against his ageing, newly married father, and shows us how easily sexual jealousy can fray the bonds of parenthood. 'The Rip' will appeal to Drewes long- established readership but also seduce a new generation with its sometimes mordant but often very funny take on contemporary relationships between children and parents, lovers, husbands and wives, old school mates and complete strangers."--Provided by publisher
