At last, a contemporary novel about an Australian tradesman, unabashedly written in the language of the workplace, and set in a typical small town on the Queensland coast. Derek Saddler is a boatbuilder. He swears profusely and he's good at his trade. But, as with many tradeys, his work squeezes out the time he has available for his wife and kids. In the midst of this dilemma he has a serious fall while working on a boat, and when he regains consciousness he becomes aware of a strange new perceptive ability - he is able to smell and interpret smells in ways that seem extraordinary. Of course, there are consequences - some dire, and somenot so dire
