Abstract:

We're in Bacchus Marsh in the 1950s, with car salesmen, an early aviator, and the lives of Irene Bobs and Willy Bachhuber. The striking Irene is ahead of her time, a fearless, big-hearted, independently minded woman. Her next door neighbour Willy seems to be constantly in flight from his own life. He lacks social confidence but is extremely well read, so much so that he's a radio quiz champ. And he has a particular fondness for maps. When Irene's husband Titch decides to enter the Redex trial, Irene goes with him as co-driver, and Willy as navigator. Fantastically fun and funny, Peter's new novel is a major achievement.
