Abstract:

A writer arrives in a dead-end town in the heart of the outback, rents a room, and begins a treatise on the disappearing towns of the Central West of New South Wales. But are the towns in decline - or are they literally vanishing? Present is a collection of characters, including community radio host Ciara, who receives dozens of unmarked cassette recordings every week and broadcasts them to a listenership of none; publican Jenny, who runs a hotel with no patrons; and ex-musician Tom, who drives an impractical bus that no one ever boards. In a place of innumerable petrol stations, labyrinthine cul-de-sac streets, and ubiquitous drive-thru franchises, where are these people likely to discover the truth about their collective past - and can they do so before the town completely disappears?
