beneath pale water

Set amidst the physical and psychological landscapes of New Zealand's southern high country Beneath Pale Water is a social realist and expressionistic novel that follows a triangle of three damaged individuals - a sculptor, a vagrant and a model - who have grown calcified shells against the world as their search for identity and resolution leads them into conflicts that threaten both their sanity and their lives.  As their  protective shells crack they are left vulnerable yet open to exploring new beginnings and new lives.

Beneath Pale Water is available to purchase from all good bookstores and from the Cloud Ink Press shop
