Michael Meehan: The Salt of Broken Tears

In the edges of the salt lakes, in the harsh Mallee country of north-west Victoria in the 1920s, isolated soldier-settler farms struggle to survive the dust and despair. There are few travellers until a girl turns up out of nowhere. Eileen.
Eager for mischief and hungry for attention, Eileen arrives to captivate them all until, in another cloud of mystery, she disappears. What follows is the epic and incredible odyssey of the boy who flees in search of her. Compelled by the mystery his journey takes him across the haungting landscape of the Australian outback.
In the tradition of William Faulkner The Salt of Broken Tears is an astounding achievement. Lyrical and intense, it is at once a dark thriller and a meditation on imagination and desire, evoking the mythic beauty of the Australian landscape.
