A powerful novel from a fresh voice in Australian Literary Fiction.
‘The Beloved's characters leap off the page with warmth and vital intensity. Faulkner creates a portrait in words that vividly evoke the protagonist's painterly vision.’
Judges of the Nita B Kibble Literary Award
'Last Day in the Dynamite Factory'
An explosive novel of secrets and lies; a masterclass in marital dissatisfaction.
'The tongue and groove of character, plot and thematic architecture is seamless. Faulkner solves the equation of stability over passion with delicacy, tact and immense generosity.'
