I found this book a compelling read and I was reluctant to put it down. It deals with one of today's most frightening social conditions, but does it in a creative and sensitive way that makes it easy to conceptualise, while at the same time engaging you with the lives and personalities of the characters. I found myself subconsciously relating this story to parts of my own life, and empathising with those struggling to make sense of the darker events in our lives.
A difficult topic, but handled in a compassionate and entertaining manner. I could almost describe it as uplifting. Really an excellent debut novel from Michael Cannon. I wonder if there is more coming?

About the Author
While Michael Cannon's bread and butter is graphic design, he finds himself delving more and more into his other passions of music and lyric composition, fine art and creative writing. Michael lives in North West Tasmania with his amazing wife Kathy (she suggested he say that and, of course, he agrees), Poppy the rescue dog and the myriad wallabies, bandicoots and devils that frequent their nocturnal garden. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Michael takes us from the black depths of despair, to an unlikely chance for acceptance and meaning. I only have to think back to the conclusion to this story and my chest wells with emotion. Every time. No other book has done that to me. Once I knew the book, I listened to Michael's CD, The Tramp, and found another dimension to this gripping tale.
