Leverson, a man who believes 'you get more magic from strangers', is fascinated by the misfits, hippies and straights that people sultry north Queensland. Under Leverson's ironical yet compassionate eye, tuba-playing 'Jesus freak' Lilian and odd-jobbing poet Fixer are brought together in a sudden and strange way. From four-time Miles Franklin Award winner Thea Astley, North: Some Compass Readings: Eden is a lyrical and evocative story of the intensity of Australia's north.
